Nose : Loads of citrusy-juniper with a spicy background. Delicate brewed tea and floral undertones from the paan.
Palate : Smooth, almost buttery juniper, raw mango and edgy citrus fused together.Peppery bite and a tease of paan and tea.
Overall : Long, dry and wholesome. Packs a punch.
AMRUT Nilgiris Indian Dry Gin
Quantity limited to 2 bottle(s) by client.
The inception for a distilled gin was laid down as a team at Amrut, however, the preliminary work on botanical research was really initiated by the late CMD Shri Neelakanta Rao Jagdale. The idea was to create a profile that was unique to India and one that was reflective to its namesake, Nilgiris. Nilgiri mountains is part of the western Ghats of India, over 7000 ft above sea level; offering an array of botanicals that exhibit an indigenous flavour to some of the commonly available species and herbs. Nilgiris has a vast area dedicated to tea plantation and grows a variety of Indian spices. The research included multiple trips to the Nilgiris, foraging numerous botanicals and distilling them individually and as a part of a compound recipe; understanding its organoleptic nuances within a broad flavour chart. The use of Nilgiris tea and spices are a fitting representation of the rich flavours the blue mountains has to offer. The packaging has allusions to the phenomenal expanse of the blueness of the mountains and the vivid colours of flora.
