Yep, you read that right. A Gin crafted with real coca leaves. Not the kind you might associate with Narcos, though, but think more the ancient Inca Empire.

Coca leaves were considered sacred in the ancient Peruvian society due to their mystical powers and healing properties which helped overcome hunger and sickness. Still today, indigenous tribes consume coca leaves by chewing them fresh to get that extra energy kick. How does one go from mystical ancient rituals to Gin, you might ask. Actually, the only coca leaf Gin in the world is a love child, born on a backpacking trip in South America. It was created by a married couple, Eveline and Jeroen, who together bring 112 years of experience, becoming the fourth generation of a Belgian distilling family. During their year-long travel, searching for that je ne sais quoi ingredient, they encountered a tribe who introduced them to the sacred ceremony. They immediately knew this was it.

A story of love, ancient rituals and exotic travels, Amuerte Coca Leaf Gin was created for those who live their life to the fullest. Never knowing what tomorrow will bring, the creators wanted to craft an extraordinary, one-of-a-kind Gin. Like, go big or go home. Bottling up the taste of South American rainforest, the flavor of ethically sourced, Peruvian coca leaves develops slowly from bitter to sweet. A truly exotic drink, it is backed up by notes of tamarillo, dragon fruit and papaya. Even the elaborate bottle design, created by renowned artists, goes all the way, depicting hollow eyes of a skull, gazing intensely directly at you, surrounded by a 24K gold leaf. Not for the faint hearted.

Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
