Hapusa Himalayan Dry Gin

70cl | 43% ABV | India

Indian Gin is on fire, with the country finally waking up to the absolute abundance of botanicals it has on its doorstep. Hapusa Gin - packed to the rafters with Himalayan juniper and great, bold bursts of lime – is leading the charge.

Hapusa means juniper in Sanskrit, so it should come as no surprise that the gin is like a face first fall through a pine forest. With bright lime and a nutty coriander seed, this is a wonderful, spiced and exciting gin. Try it in a Gimlet!

Key Flavours

Juniper
Citrus
Herbal
Spiced
"The turmeric, ginger and cardamom add some significant botanical piquancy to the finish in what is, overall, a spiced flavour profile that never loses sight of juniper and its predominance throughout. A fantastic craft gin."

About this product

Hapusa Gin is made to a one-shot London Dry method on Nao Spirits 1000-litre copper pot still. All of the ingredients are added to the pot alongside a neutral wheat spirit and gently distilled by Jay Dhawan.

Nao Spirits was founded by four friends – Arnan Virmani, Vaibhav Singh, Aparjita Ninan and Jay Dhawan, who while waiting for the craft distilling boom to reach the country realised that the best way for it to begin was to start it themselves.

Nao Spirits was one of the first craft distilleries to open up in India and is very much doing its part to make Gin cool in its home region, a place that puts most of its favour on dark spirits. The also make the fantastic Greater Than Gin.
