Hapusa Himalayan Dry Gin
Distilled in India with foraged Himalayan Juniper and locally sourced botanicals, HAPUSA is a gin that is uniquely Indian.
In Sanskrit, Juniper is called ‘Hapusa’, and it is this which gives our Gin not only its name but its untamed aroma and flavor. Found near the snow line in the Himalayas, this elusive Juniper Berry provides a beautiful structure around which the rest of our botanicals are purposefully arranged.
These botanicals come from all across the country to bring together its varied flavours, cuisines and cultures to make this a real journey in a glass. From the Pine forests in the Himalayas, your taste buds venture along the banks of the Hooghly River, through the monsoon forests of Tamil Nadu and finally end their journey in the lush spice farms of Goa.
Hapusa is a sipping Gin in that it can be enjoyed all by itself or over ice. The inclusion of Turmeric and Mango make this one of the very few savory gins found today. The distillers, Anand Virmani and Jay Dhawan highly recommend Hapusa in a Dry Martini or with ice and tonic topped with 15ml of dark-roast cold brew coffee.
