More Product Information
A timeless classic in the making, with delicately spiced botanicals, Raffles 1915 Gin is an embodiment of the Raffles legend as being an oasis for the well-travelled and the beating heart of Singapore during the golden age of exotic travel and cocktail innovation – an experience travellers continue to seek out and treasure to this day.
Created to mark 100 years of the Singapore Sling at Raffles, and to inspire a new generation of bartenders to take up the mantle set by famed bartender Ngiam Tong Boon – creator of the original Singapore Sling – Raffles 1915 Gin marks a new chapter in the history of the most illustrious of cocktails.
Handcrafted at the Sipsmith Distillery in London, available in Raffles London OWO and newly on the Sipsmith website, the recipe is a sensational balance of Malaysian botanicals – jasmine flowers, fresh pomelo peel, lemongrass, Kaffir lime leaf, nutmeg and cardamom – distilled alongside some of the classic gin botanicals found in the award-winning Sipsmith London Dry Gin.
Nose: Baked apple, coriander, lemongrass, cardamom and grapefruit.
Palate: Dry and spicy. Piney juniper, sweet lime zest and a complex array of spice with a nutty roundness.
Finish: Cinnamon, zesty lime and black pepper with a lingering sweetness.
