A different kind of Gin from Brazil.

McQueen and The Violet Fog Gin is created 6,000 miles away from the traditional Gin centre of the world. It’s produced in a single copper pot still in the hills of Jundiaí in Brazil. Let us tell you, nothing about this offering is traditional.

The guys behind this Gin wanted to dig deeper and flip the script as they put it. A list of twenty-one exotic botanicals alone is bound to get your attention with stuff like basil, rosemary, fennel seed, calamansi, star anise, açai, lemongrass, pomelo peel, orris root, and jasmine flower. With their proprietary distillation process, maceration, and vapor infusion, they’re after a Gin that is anything but simple, giving you an orchard, a forest, and an apothecary vibe all in one.

Each batch yields just 500 litres of a bold Gin that delivers flavors of grapefruits, fresh cucumber, celery, pink peppercorn, and accents of bergamot. Make your next cocktail hour count with this intriguing Gin.

How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
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.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
