You may have heard of Eiling Lim, Malaysia’s first and foremost independent whisky bottler. But did you know she also released a range of gins with Malaysian flavours? Eiling wanted to give back to the community and showcase Malaysian flavours, so she went to a local Belgium distiller with three Malaysian botanicals to make a gin from, and even sought out a Malaysian graphic artist to create the striking branding. The Nasty Nangka (otherwise known as jackfruit), is one of the more subtle ones in the range. After the initial hit of sweetness, the juniper and jackfruit combine to dry out the palate, leaving a lingering fruity note. Though similar in texture to the Gawky Galangal, this is a touch shorter on the finish.
