Southeast Asian DRY GIN
Inspired by the cuisine of Southeast Asia, Tarsier is a citrus forward gin with aromatic & savoury mid-notes and a long peppery finish.
Calamansi, Thai Sweet Basil, Galangal and Kampot Pepper deliver a flavour unlike any other. An authentic taste of Southeast Asia.
ORIENTAL PINK GIN
Inspired by the tropical rainforests of Indonesia and the fruit orchards of the Mekong Delta, Tarsier Oriental Pink Gin is bursting with the floral notes of red dragon fruit, the sweetness of lychee and the tartness of raspberry.
A limited edition range of gins that take you on a backpacking journey. Each gin will be routed in a place that we visit on our trip; using local botanicals to create an authentic expression of the flavours of each area.

01: KHAO SAN GIN
Our backpacking adventure starts on Khao San Road in Bangkok, Thailand.
This is the backpacking hub of Asia, so it’s a very fitting place to start our trip. 412 metres of neon lights, bars, hawkers and the most amazing street food surround us. The aromas of kaffir lime leaf, lemongrass and Thai red chilli fill the air…
Khao San Gin is our expression of Thailand, with fragrant citrus notes of kaffir lime and lemongrass, and the fruity, earthy taste of fresh chilli without the heat!
02: TAIPEI OLD TOM
Our backpacking adventure continues as we head to Taiwan. The subtropical climate and rolling green hills means that fruit and flowers grow here in abundance.
Taiwan is famous for its tea plantations and some of the finest oolongs in the world are cultivated here. The most prized of these is Oriental Beauty Oolong, as named by Queen Elizabeth II after she was so impressed by its distinctive taste. The flavour profile is fruity, with floral, wild honey and tart notes.
We have balanced the oolong tea flavours with zesty Kumquat, floral Hibiscus and aromatic Ginseng, harnessing the best natural produce that Taiwan is famous for.

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 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.
