Since its inception in 2018, Stranger & Sons has been at the forefront of revolutionizing and disrupting the Indian spirits landscape, consistently delivering exceptional quality beverages that resonate globally. The result? An impressive roster of award-winning gins including Trading Tides, crafted in collaboration with Australia’s Four Pillars Gin, and India’s first distilled cocktail – the longstanding, cult favorite Perry Road Peru crafted in partnership with The Bombay Canteen.
Breaking the mold once again, Stranger & Sons continues to shape India’s cocktail culture with its latest masterpiece: a Sherry Cask Aged Gin. Rested in ex Amontillado and Oloroso sherry casks for over a year the result is a spirit that stands as a testament to the passage of time, where contemporary distillation converges with the patience of aging. The liquid was further infused with two key ingredients: cascara and wild honey to give the spirit a bold and audacious taste profile. They used cascara, the humble husk of coffee cherry that conceals a wealth of flavors, and aromas, and infused this gin with a distinctive character along with the surprising sweet notes of wild honey. The addition of wild honey invites you to pause and savor the subtleties that come from embracing nature’s untamed offerings.
This creation is far from your typical cask-aged gin, reimagining the experience as something akin to sipping a classic old-fashioned cocktail, but with a welcoming twist. To elevate the experience even further, they recommend a generous spritz of the grapefruit garnish spray that comes with the bottle, to have an enchanting burst of zest that intertwines seamlessly with the drink.
In addition to its expertly crafted liquid, this product presents a label and packaging that reflects the very nature it draws inspiration from – India’s lush and diverse forests, where reality and illusion are combined in breathtaking harmony. The label encourages you to pause and think, mirroring the essence of this remarkable landscape.
Designed and packaged for those who appreciate the finer things in life, this gin offers an unconventional approach to consumption – best enjoyed poured straight from the bottle
over ice, in unhurried moments. This is a drink that beckons you to slow down, to immerse yourself fully in the moment.
“This time, we sought to push the boundaries and blur the lines between the world of old-fashioned cocktails and Gins, to unveil a liquid with not just a fresh and bold flavor profile but one that truly re-defines a consumer’s drinking experience. You’ll find yourself immersed in a story of contrasts – the richness of sherry harmonizing with the vibrancy of cascara, while the delicate sweetness of wild honey adds a touch of wonder to every sip. Enjoyed best neat, on the rocks, just like an old-fashioned cocktail; this gin is an invitation to explore new dimensions of taste and to create your moments of relaxation amidst the hustle.” said Sakshi Saigal, co-founder, of Stranger & Sons Gin.
