In The Roar
As the first-ever fully-fledged micro-distillery on our island, Brass Lion Distillery takes great pride in celebrating local heritage and native ingredients through its singular craft spirits. Drawing on Singapore’s role in the flourishing spice trade of the 19th century, the Alexandra-based operation uses Southeast Asian botanicals obtained from nearby TCM shops and wet markets, including torch ginger flowers, kaffir lime leaves, pomelo peel and galangal, to infuse three artisanal gins: citrusy Singapore Dry, floral Buttery Pea, and spiced Pink Pahit. Recently, in an effort to aid local communities impacted by the pandemic, the Brass Lion Distillery also teamed up with several bars to bottle ready-to-drink cocktails, such as a Lavender Negroni and Merlion Spritz, all profits of which go back to its partners, on top of making its own hand sanitiser from the by-products of distillation for donation and sale.
