It’s my pleasure to present a second cocktail recipe using Jaisalmer Indian Craft Gin…here’s how it began. The recipe below was created by our Spirited Table team and we feel like this mixture enhances the taste of this gin, without stealing the gin’s show. If you missed the first recipe here you go…Jaisalmer French Gimlet.

THE ROYAL TALES

When a land is nurtured with the souls of bravehearts, then royal pride shines through. Relaxed pastimes, and sipping into life, are well deserved moments of immense pleasure.

The breathtaking city of Jaisalmer is likened to a golden canvas, beckoning you to partake of its glorious history. Its vibrant streaks of colour come alive with stories of valiant princes, as its princely 15 gun salute ups the levels of royal pride to its highest.

Dedicated to this spectacular way of life, Jaisalmer Indian Craft Gin harks back to imperial age of Maharajas and Maharanis and their leisure moments.

Befitting a state with many fascinating stories, our gin is a worthy experience with a chequered past that lives on in a new incarnation today.
