Sông Cái Vietnam Floral Gin
Song Cai Floral Gin is a marriage of vast deltas and remote mountains of Việt Nam. Deltas are central to Việt Nam’s agricultural life, and culture. This riparian landscape lives according to the rhythm of flood and drought, of planting and harvest.
The 1st and 15th of every lunar month is marked by a signature blossom often used to perfume local households, decorate family altars, or use in cooking. Sông Cái traveled throughout Việt Nam’s lush deltas, gathering ingredients to combine with our highland botanicals. Paired with five distinct flowers, the result is a truly unique floral gin.
Fresh pine, black cherry, and ripe jack fruit
A touch of ripe berry, green pepper, ylang ylang and bee pollen
Gentle dried spice and lingering citrus, blossom notes
