The latest expression from Tarsier Spirit, and the first as part of their brand new Backpacker Series.
The adventure starts on Khao San Road in Bangkok, also known as the backpacking hub of Asia. 412 metres of neon lights, bars, hawkers and the most amazing street food surround us. The aromas of kaffir lime leaf, lemongrass and Thai red chilli fill the air…
Khao San Gin is an expression of this incredible location. To harness the fresh, vibrant flavours of Thai cuisine, Tarsier have cold-distilled Kaffir Lime Leaf, Lemongrass and Thai Red Chilli separately in a vacuum still and blended with a traditional distillate of 10 carefully selected botanicals. It’s then bottled at 41.2% in homage to this famous road which measures 412 metres long.
Tarsier Southeast Asian Dry Gin
Drawing on influences from the cuisine of the Philippines, Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand, Tarsier Gin was inspired by a backpacking trip across Southeast Asia. There are four standout botanicals; Calamansi, Kampot Pepper, Thai Sweet Basil and Galangal. These four botanicals are distilled alongside seven traditional botanicals to create something special.
To taste this has juniper, bright citrus notes, prickles of pepper and spice, and a herbaceous edge thanks to the Thai Sweet Basil. Read more about Tarsier Spirit here.
A blushing gin from Tarsier Sprit, bursting with the floral notes of red dragon fruit, the sweetness of lychee and the tartness of raspberry. Raspberry is prominent but there’s twists and turns on the palate giving this real depth. The Southeast Asian botanicals are really rather delightful and help make this raspberry creation refreshingly unique. Read more about Tarsier Spirit here.
