This gin is a celebration of some of the best botanicals Vietnam has to offer, black cardamom from the dense jungles in the North, the rare Buddha’s Hand citrus grown in the capital of Hanoi, Saigon Cinnamon from the Annamite mountain ranges and Lotus flower from the Mekong Delta. Together with Macedonian Juniper and 9 other local botanicals these botanicals make a remarkable gin.
Inspired by the rugged terrains and incredible diversity of Vietnam and after 2 years of experimenting, the founders created an outspoken gin unlike any other: Saigon Baigur, world's only gin with fresh macerated Buddha's Hand, vapor infused Lotus flower and black cardamom.
The name Baigur was derived from the name of the first known settlement in this area, a small fish and spice trading outpost. The name Saigon Baigur pays homage to the more than 1000-year-old tradition of spice & botanical trading in the area.
Saigon Baigur takes its symbol from the dragon. Not only does this local mythological creature represent power and prosperity, it also brings rain and therefore the dragon is essential to agriculture and the botanicals used in our gin. In turn, the bottle has been inspired by the scales of this legendary creature.
