Oriental Elixir Pandan Gin
This is the first release from Oriental Elixir — a collaboration between The Spiffy Dapper and Tanglin Gin Distillery. This gin was created by resting the Tanglin Orchid Gin in fresh Pandan Leaves.
Conceived by Abhishek Cherian George, the balanced ratio of Pandan to Gin was discovered and perfected over many batches by Johnny Rose. The final flavour was decided by George, Johnny and Vojta Bazant through a blind tasting of the gin by itself, with cocktails and with tonic.
What is the Best Way to Enjoy the Gin?
The Pandan is full on the nose and gentle on the palate. This gin works well in cocktails and in G&Ts. We recommend a ratio of 1 part Pandan Gin to 2 parts Tonic Water. There is enough Pandan in the gin so we recommend that you use fresh herbs, like mint and a slice of orange for garnish.
Optional Cocktail Kit + Masterclass
You also have the option to add on a cocktail kit with a masterclass. This kit includes ingredients for up to 10 cocktails. The ingredients will stay true to Oriental Elixir — weird but some kind of wonderful. You will get the ingredients along with the tools in a kit. Then you can get a Zoom call with the bartenders to learn about the ingredients and how to use them.
The kit includes ingredients for the following style of cocktails.
- 2 x Martini Style
- 2 x Negroni Style
- 6 x Sour Style
Optional Tonic Waters
We have the option to add a mixed-pack of craft tonic waters to experiment with. These tonic waters have been chosen for the unique perspectives each can offer when paired with the gin.

- East Imperial Burma Tonic
- East Imperial Yuzu Tonic
- London Essence Grapefruit & Rosemary
