Jaisalmer Indian Craft Gin (43% abv) is new from Radico Khaitan, produced in the Rampur Distillery in India. Jaisalmer has “royal” black packaging with touches of muted gold. Its look aims for “ultimate luxury and pure regalia”.

Tasting notes: “To the palate spicy notes from coriander, peppery hint from cubeb pepper, citrussy brightness from lemon peel, zing from sweet orange peel, fresh aroma from darjeeling green tea and Lemon grass with a refreshing finish and a lingering aftertaste.”
