N.I.P Distilling: Hong Kong Spirit
If Hong Kong was a gin, how would it taste like? Take a sip of the N.I.P Rare Dry Gin, a truly made-in-Hong Kong spirit that’s developed, produced and packaged in N.I.P Distilling
’s Quarry Bay distillery. “Hong Kong is an ‘N.I.P’ (Not Important Place) when it comes to spirit-making but we’re showing the world that premium craft spirits can also be produced here,” says co-founder and COO Nic Law.
“With our signature gin, we wanted to create something that retains the traditional flavours of a gin, while highlighting flavours of our city,” he adds. The result is a gin made using 21 botanicals, including juniper berries, coriander seeds, aged tangerine peel, fresh pear, ginger and Osmanthus. Aromatic, fruity and spicy all at once, it’s perfect to enjoy in a cocktail or on its own. N.I.P is also launching a Chinese New Year limited-edition gin called “800M”, featuring eight festive ingredients like lotus seeds, mandarin, black dates and gold flakes – a recipe that will surely bring you good luck and prosperity in the new year!
