Spice Island Distilling Co. is about to launch the first of its small batched craft gins, Archipelago Dry Gin, an authentic Distilled Gin, the first made in Indonesia. Unlike local gins which mix flavouring with ethanol, to fit the legal definition of Distilled Gin East Indies Archipelago Dry Gin is made by distilling pure grain alcohol with juniper and rich spices of the Indonesian archipelago.
East Indies Archipelago Dry Gin has a classic juniper-forward flavour instantly recognisable to any gin lover, but the stars of the show are the signature Indonesian botanicals of Kecombrang (Torch Ginger Flower) and Andaliman (Batak Pepper) which give this gin a uniquely Indonesian flavour. Smooth, refreshing and deep in flavour thanks to its authentic distillation method, this gin is great in a classic gin and tonic with a Kecombrang petal garnish, and also mixes extraordinarily well with classic gin cocktails such as Negronis and Martinis.
East Indies Gin will be available in all good food and beverage establishments and premium retailers of alcoholic beverages in Jakarta & Bali by the end of the year and will be available in Singapore, Australia, Thailand and the UK by the end of 2022.
