From the white sands of Boracay to the street food of Bangkok, the bustling streets of Saigon and the majestic temples of Angkor Wat, Tarsier Gin takes you on a journey of adventure and discovery.
Inspired by the cuisine of Southeast Asia, Tarsier is a citrus forward gin with aromatic & savoury mid-notes and a long peppery finish. Enjoy neat or with a splash of tonic and a slice of lime & ginger.
In 2015 we took a backpacking trip around Southeast Asia. It was an incredible journey that opened our eyes to new cultures, sights, sounds and smells. The thing that really stuck with us was the food. It was vibrant, fresh and had the most incredible balance of sweet, sour, spicy and umami flavours.
On our return to England we had an idea. Let’s create a gin that celebrates Southeast Asian cuisine; a balance of flavour that sets the tastebuds alight.
We spent the next three years on a journey of discovery and adventure. We developed our idea, honed our craft, and experimented with a multitude of Southeast Asian flavours.
We refused to rush and never compromised, only starting production when we had perfected a gin that we were truly proud of, one that honoured the incredible culture, cuisine, and people we had experienced on our trip.
We did it all ourselves. A true craft gin is crafted by the passion, love and belief of its founders. It’s never outsourced.
We took the best ingredients that we found on our adventures across Southeast Asia and combined them with traditional botanicals that provide the framework for a classic London Dry Gin:
Juniper, Coriander Seed, Cassia, Angelica, Orris Root, Liquorice Root and Bitter Almond provide a solid foundation for our five signature Southeast Asian botanicals:
Calamansi, Thai Sweet Basil, Galangal and Kampot Pepper deliver a flavour unlike any other. An authentic taste of Southeast Asia.
We named our gin after the Philippine Tarsier, one of the world’s smallest primates that is native to the Philippines. Characterised by its small stature and big eyes, it perfectly embodied our vision. A small batch gin with big flavour and personality.
We are supporting the Tarsier by donating 10% of our profits to conservation projects in Southeast Asia. Our first partner is the Philippine Tarsier Foundation.
