Singapore Distillery offers a range of unique gins which are distilled locally – 6 for now. So everyone will be able to find the right gin for them. It took the Singapore Distillery team many batches, over 100 test batches to get each gin to where they want them.
All of Singapore Distillery's gins are diluted to 42.5% ABV, or alcoholic strength. In their experience and the findings of many distillers worldwide, this brings out the best flavour of botanicals without having a sort of raw alcohol taste which is the case when the alcohol strength is higher. Many Gin connoisseurs say that gins with less than 42.5% ABV don’t have the flavour to stand up to tonic water or other ingredients in cocktails.
