From Singapore's first gin distillery, Tanglin. This new high-proof expression recently won Double Gold at the very prestigious 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Using diverse botanicals native to different countries across Asia - an homage to Singapore's own multi-cultural identity - this gin delivers an extremely appealing mix of different flavors and sensations. Surprisingly smooth, excellent for cocktails (a little goes a long way), and can even be sipped neat.
Bottle Size: 750ml & 116 Proof
|Tasting Notes||Gentle citrus nose with a bold juniper character and pepper note. On the palate you'll find it velvet smooth with a juniper crispness, spicy citrus, and herbal notes. Impressive depth of flavor and a slight sweetness. It finishes with peppery herbal notes and a gentle warmth that expands to deliver a long and lingering smooth finish.|
Ways to Enjoy
Classic: A terrific way to mix up a Gimlet
Unexpected: Tea time does double duty as happy hour with The Royal-Tea Cocktail. Brew up some earl gray tea, chill, then add Black Powder Gin, lemon juice and simple syrup or honey to taste.
Double Gold - San Francisco World Spirits Competition, 2020
It starts with the core ingredients of Tanglin's Orchid expression: traditional botanicals like juniper and coriander as well as more uncommon botanicals for gin, like vanilla and amchoor, a fruity spice powder made from dried unripe green mango. The Black Powder recipe departs from the Orchid in two ways: half the juniper pods are bruised and whole fresh lemons are added into the botanical blend for a bright citrus note.
The gin is distilled in a pot and still column, and as a final step, distilled water is used to reduce it to its final 58% ABV.
Developed by four expats living in Singapore, the team worked with the Singapore government for three years in order to establish the country's first gin distillery.
The desire was to create a gin that reflected the essence of Singapore, a city-state known for its tremendous diversity, with people from many different cultures living together on the island.
The Tanglin area of Singapore was formerly the native jungle habitat of the white tiger. The land was cleared in the 19th century to make way for spice plantations, as Singapore became an essential trading port. Today this area is home to the country's UNESCO World Heritage-listed botanic gardens, where the main entrance is known as the Tanglin Gate. The shape of the gate is reflected in the bottle's label.
Tanglin Gin has fast become the gin of choice at top bars and restaurants across the island, and has even inspired a bit of a local gin craze in Southeast Asia.
