Crimson Pangolin Gin
What do you get if you mix an ex-pat British lady with an obsession for all things quintessentially British, an ex-pat liquor entrepreneur, the ancient Chinese city of Changsha and the knowledge that China has some of the richest juniper berries in the world? You get all of the raw ingredients for China’s craft gin. Crimson Pangolin.
Before the gin snobs start scoffing and rolling their eyes at “Chinese Gin”, it’s worth considering that the leadership team at Liquor Town are absolutely obsessed with gin. Collectively we have test drove about 300 different gins from all over the world. TO be listed by us, it’s got to have quality, consistency, a great flavour profile, work as a gin and tonic and it’s got to have a price that demonstrated value. AT 30% cheaper than Hendricks, it does just that.
Unique to Crimson Pangolin is the colour. A deliberate result of the post distillation infusion of coriander and lemon peel. Relevant to the translation of “gin” in Chinese (Jin Jiu) which translates to “Golden Alcohol”.
