Meet Amanpulo Farm Gin: A New Must-Try Tropical Philippine Spirit
Straight from Pamalican island, Palawan, Amanpulo is proud to present Farm Gin, their newest creation. Locally made, this gin shows off the best that the Philippines has to offer through each sip. It also highlights other South East Asian flavours, infusing a global je ne sais quoi that gives this spirit a deeper and more unique flavour profile.
Made with freshly picked botanicals from the resort’s very own organic farm, this spirit is bright, vibrant and delightfully refreshing. With a melange of homegrown flavours that include notes of kaffir lime, lemongrass, dill, calamansi, Thai basil and ginger, each sip totally transports you to the pristine shores of Amanpulo. Personally, I enjoy this gin on the rocks, but it definitely works well in a variety of gin-based cocktails too!
"Masterfully distilled in the copper stills of Full Circle Craft Distillery, the first authentic craft distillery in the Philippines, the bespoke small batch of artisanal gin is handcrafted with precision using time-honoured traditions and techniques" Amanpulo shares.
The Organic Farm
With 2,000 square metres of space, the Amanpulo team proudly grows the freshest produce, herbs, and botanicals. The property is cared for by a dedicated team of gardeners headed by a resident horticulturist. "The garden is composed of fruit, vegetable and herb growing farm with greenhouses, a flower farm, and an ornamental nursery supporting all the beautification and landscaping developments on the island" the team adds. Pamalican island is quite isolated to be frank. So much so that Amanpulo needs to fly in food and ingredients daily. Through their sustainable initiatives such as the organic farm, they support the kitchens in expanding the much-needed supply of fresh produce.
