Give This Locally-Distilled Rojak Gin A Shot Or Three Now Available At Selected Bars In SG

Do you have a thing for gin? Or maybe you’re craving for some rojak? How about having both, at the same time? Yes, Rachelle the Rabbit Meadery has managed to create a Singapore-inspired Rojak Gin, available for purchase now at S$108 per 500ml bottle!

Gin is quickly shaping up to be one of the up-and-coming alcoholic beverages here, with local distillery Tanglin Gin and Brass Lion Distillery managing to brew the first batch of the juniper-berry based drink in Singapore.

Rachelle the Rabbit Meadery (who coincidentally also introduced mead to Singapore) has joined the ranks of local distilleries in producing gin locally. They have even upped the stakes by creating the first locally-inspired gin.

The Rojak Gin really surprised me. Instead of that harsh, nostril-hair-burning alcohol taste, the first thing that hit me was the tangy spiciness of rojak. Rojak sauce is sweet and sour, and Rachelle the Rabbit Meadery has somehow managed to recreate that flavour profile using only three main ingredients — lemon peel, torch ginger and of course, juniper berries.

The torch ginger gave the spicy kick while the tangy sourness could be easily attributed to the lemon peel. However, the drink also had a very subtle, smooth sweetness to it.

It was only later that I realized that Rachelle the Rabbit Meadery uses fermented and distilled honey, a process they are super familiar with as it is also used when brewing mead. Using the honey-based spirit resulted in a smoother, softer tasting gin that’s easier on the palate.

I love how the three ingredients used could still be individually sussed out. But if you just want to sip on the drink, each component melts into each other seamlessly, creating something that’s distinct and unique.

You can opt to have the Rojak Gin ordered from Rachelle the Rabbit Meadery’s site and sent to your place. If you want to enjoy the gin with friends, head over to selected bars like Native, El Tardeo, Potato Head, Oxwell & Co. and Thevar.

What are you waiting for? Give this drink a shot. Or two!
