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.
