Bauhinia Gin

Hong Kong's Spirit

Bauhinia Gin, a premium London Dry Gin, is our tribute to Hong Kong. Distilled from the finest natural botanicals and united by the unique flavour of the Bauhinia flower, the emblem of Hong Kong, this artisanal small batch gin is crisp, refreshing and brimming with the spirit of the city that inspired it.

The Bauhinia Flower

Over 50 years ago the Bauhinia blakeana (洋紫荊) was selected as Hong Kong’s floral insignia, and since 1997 it has been on the SAR’s coat of arms, its flag and its coins. This fragrant orchid like flower, reputed to have been first discovered near Pok Fu Lam, blooms from November to the end of March and inhabits every corner of Hong Kong, from the bustling metropolis of Central to the beautiful countryside and beaches of Sai Kung. The Bauhinia, much like the city it represents, is a hybrid from which it continues to draw its strength, vitality and allure. Is it any wonder, therefore, that we made the Bauhinia flower the heart and soul of this unique gin.

THE HONG KONG GIN CO. LTD.

THE CHOP

CHOPS HAVE BEEN PART OF HONG KONG CULTURE FOR GENERATIONS AND THE AFFIXING OF A CHOP TO AN OBJECT BY ITS PRODUCER SIGNIFIES THE PRODUCER’S COMPLETE CONFIDENCE IN, AND COMMITMENT TO, THE PRODUCT. THAT IS WHY EVERY BOTTLE OF BAUHINIA GIN BEARS THE EMBOSSED CHOP OF THE HONG KONG GIN CO. LTD.

THE BAUHINIA FLOWER

DISTINCTIVE LABEL ON THE FRONT OF THE BOTTLE, REFLECTS THE CARE AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL THAT GOES INTO EVERY ELEMENT OF THE BAUHINIA GIN. THE BAUHINIA FLOWER HAS BEEN AT THE HEART OF EVERY STAGE OF PRODUCTION OF THIS GIN, FROM THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE RECIPE, THE SOURCING OF THE BOTANICALS AND THE DISTILLATION OF THE GIN TO THE BOTTLING, LABELLING AND PRESENTATION OF THE FINISHED PRODUCT.

BAUHINIA GIN - THE STREET SIGN

INSPIRED BY TRADITIONAL HONG KONG STREET SIGNS, THE BAUHINIA GIN LOGO REFLECTS THE DEEP ROOTED CONNECTION BETWEEN THE BAUHINIA GIN AND THE CITY THAT INSPIRED IT.
