Singapore Distillery

Singapore isn't short on gin, but the recently launched Singapore Distillery has reason to join the city's craft spirits scene. One of it would be its custom-designed, old- fashioned 500-litre copper still that carries a bulbous head common to whisky distilling. The team has found that it lends to a lighter yet more complex finish compared to the conventional gooseneck still by redistilling the reflux.

Taking full advantage of Singapore’s access to fresh, exotic fruits and spices, founder Ashwin Sekaran wanted to create gins that catered to everyone, and so created curious variations such as the Singapore Sling Gin, Coconut Pandan Gin, and Stolen Roses Gin, the latter of which is an ode to what else, but bandung.
