There’s an Indian gin, new to the United States, that’s worth knowing. Jaisalmer Indian Craft Gin, made by one of India’s major distillers, Radico Khaitan, offers a dry, aromatic style, with piney, minty, citric notes and a hint of coriander and anise on the palate, to pair well with tonic or in a martini. At the same time it is extremely well-balanced and delightful neat or on the rocks. The gin starts with a triple-distilled neutral spirit which is then redistilled with botanicals in copper pot stills in Rampur in Uttar Pradesh.
