    Amázzoni Gin

    In a country known for its cachaça, it was a bold move in 2017 to establish a gin distillery. But that’s exactly what the founders of Amázzoni Gin did on an old coffee plantation in Fazenda Cachoiera in the Paraiba river valley. Amázzoni Gin is one of only a handful of gins to come out of South America with the Amazon at the heart of its botanical profile.

    Hibiscus

    Hibiscus is a popular key botanical in gin often taking centre stage. It also pops up in mixers and is found paired with pomegranate and grapefruit where its tart fruitiness finds natural partners. It is the trumpet-shaped flowers or calyces that distillers are interested in. The calyces are tart to the point of bitterness, adding a jammy floral note to gin.
