The multi award-winning Singapore Dry Gin is crafted with herbs and spices that were carefully selected to represent the cultural melting pot that is Singapore. Staying true to the traditional method of pot still distillation, the Brass Lion team combine classic gin botanicals with Asian flavours such as the aromatic torch ginger flower and citrusy lemongrass to produce a smooth, vibrant spirit that is the quintessential expression of The Singapore Dry Gin.
Launched in 2018, Brass Lion Distillery is Singapore’s first full-fledged micro-distillery offering a selection of high-quality craft spirits using local ingredients. Inspired by the flourishing spice trade that made Singapore a trading hub in the 19th century, Brass Lion Distillery uses familiar Southeast Asian botanicals to create distinctive spirit creations that reflect Singapore’s heritage as a cultural melting pot. The debut offering is the Brass Lion Singapore Dry Gin, featuring 22 botanicals, with strong Asian influence, including pomelo peel, tangerine peel, kaffir lime leaves, galangal, lemongrass, chrysanthemum and torch ginger flower. Distilled using a traditional 150-litre copper pot still, the gin presents floral and citrusy notes with a full-bodied mouth-feel. The distillery also houses a herb garden, a R&D lab and a tasting room with drinks that take inspiration from the gin’s various botanicals. Tours and workshops are also available for participants to sign-up and learn more about the art of distilling and customising their very own bottle of gin.
