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 Pandan Predator is especially popular among gin lovers. Pandan (otherwise known as the screwpine) is a very common Malaysian botanical that is used in both savoury (think nasi lemak) and sweet dishes (kueh). With the gin, you get big green notes of vanilla and more subtle nutty, coconut and nutmeg flavours in the end. The gin feels more intense and sweet on the palate, with a savoury nutmeg finish. Lovely oily texture with good length. Perfect for a Malaysian-flavoured gin and tonic!
