Founders of this brand want you to ditch drinking rum with coke, and enjoy it with ice, a dash of water or maybe a little soda. So, they launched Earth Rum, a medium-bodied spiced spirit layered with refreshing clove and amber undertones that will make you forget the rum-coke combination. As you sip, you’ll taste cinnamon-fuelled tannins and a tinge of star anise, finished with peppery, chocolatey flavours and a hint of vanilla.
Rs1,350 for 700ml.
A 100% aged agave spirit, Pistola is only the second brand of its kind in the country, after Desmondji’s 51% and 100% agave spirits.The reposado variant—the first to be launched—is a smooth homegrown spirit that goes down quickly. It’s creamy, with hints of vanilla, caramel and butterscotch. Soon, the drink will also be available in smoky agave, with notes of white pepper, grass and honey, and añejo, with cooked agave, cocoa, honey and butter. Price at 2695 750ml
Fullarton Distilleries’ newest rum comes in two editions—a white rum and café rum. They are made with a combination of cane and jaggery. The clear white rum, made with a mix of aged and unaged spirits, has a dry finish with notes of vanilla and caramel. The café rum, on the other hand, is infused with dark roasted whole coffee beans and comes in a lovely amber shade.
Rs1,500 for a bottle of white rum and Rs1,650 for a bottle of café rum.
Matinee Gin was conceptualised and brought to fruition by two friends Anjali Shahi and Lavanya Jayashankar. It is really different because instead of fennel, cloves or Gondhoraj, Matinee is infused with snake saffron, white turmeric, kagzi lime and Goan peppercorn. On the nose, you have citrus and earthy notes with a hint of spice and sweet finish. The bottle is an eye-catcher fo’sure. It is colourful, it is playful and it is so fun.
