Tarsier Taipei Old Tom Gin

Tarsier Spirits backpacking adventure continues as they head to Taiwan. Once named  “Isla Formosa” by the Portuguese explorers that sailed upon it – which literally translates as “Beautiful Island” – the subtropical climate and rolling green hills means that fruit and flowers grow here in abundance.

Taiwan is famous for its tea plantations and some of the finest oolongs in the world are cultivated here. The most prized of these is Oriental Beauty Oolong, as named by Queen Elizabeth II after she was so impressed by its distinctive taste. The flavour profile is fruity, with floral, wild honey and tart notes.

They have balanced the oolong tea flavours with zesty Kumquat, floral Hibiscus and aromatic Ginseng, harnessing the best natural produce that Taiwan is famous for.

Taipei Old Tom is a refreshingly fruity gin with a restrained hint of sweetness; light tea aromas lead to floral notes and herbal complexity. Best served with a classic Indian tonic and a slice of grapefruit.

Each bottle has a QR code on the back, which when scanned will transport you to Taipei with photos, videos and recipes from the area. You can immerse yourself in the culture, cuisine and atmosphere of Taipei without leaving your house!

Time to pack your bags and head to Taiwan for this new addition to the Backpacker Series.

Pair Tarsier Taipei Old Tom Gin with Fever-Tree Elderflower Tonic or Indian Tonic.
