Why coke?

Treasure of the ancient empires
Long before the time of Pablo Escobar and the Colombian drug lords, the coca plant had a mystical and powerful role for the people who grew them. In ancient Peruvian society, coca leaves were prized throughout the Inca Empire, prized for its abilities to fight hunger and disease.

A flavor as rich as its history
It took just one chance encounter – a coca leaf-chewing ceremony with an indigenous tribe, during a backpacking trip through the rainforest – to bring our founders face to face with the mystical flavors of the coca leaf. Our founders were well suited to transforming the flavors of the coca leaf into a gin unlike any other. Between the two of us, we bring a 112 year, 4th generation family history of gin, and an unbridled passion for gin. The result? An incredibly balanced and lively combination of subtle, bitter coca, with bright notes of tamarillo, papaya and South American dragon fruit. The botanicals used in this edition in addition to Peruvian Coca leaves are cardamom, coriander, finger lime (organic and hand-picked in the Circeo Natural Park in Sabaudia-Rome) and Sichuan pepper which offer a very pleasant sensation of balsamic freshness all contained in our bottles hand-designed and finished with real 24 carat gold foil.
