India’s Greater Than gin hits the UK

Greater Than London Dry Gin

Nao Spirits has launched its Indian craft gin brand Greater Than in the UK.

Founded by Anand Virmani and Vaibhav Singh, Greater Than initially launched in September 2017, and quickly became one of India’s leading gin brands.

The London dry gin is distilled in copper pots in Goa and infused with pure botanicals sourced from India and around the world. These include juniper, orange peel, orris root, angelica root, coriander seeds, fennel, chamomile, ginger and lemongrass.

Greater Than offers “clean juniper and fresh lemon peel on the nose, with a zing of ginger on the finish”. According to Nao Spirits, these “fresh citrus notes” make it ideal for a number of traditional cocktails, including the Negroni and Clover Club, as well as the classic G&T and bespoke tippes.

Anand Virmani, CEO Nao Spirits, said: “India and the UK are forever tied together in the history of gin. If not for the English, we would not have had our first sip of gin and if not for India, the English would never have discovered the Gin & Tonic.

“The ties between the two countries of course have become tighter over time and it seemed only natural to us to produce an authentic Indian gin.”
