Gin inspired by adventure!

From the adventure of a lifetime, to years of flavour experimentation, Tarsier Spirits produced their first gin in January 2018. With their own distillery now producing a range of delicious Southeast Asian inspired spirits… you definitely need to try them all!


The Story

Sherwin has been in the drinks industry for 15 years. Tim has a degree in Maths and his meticulous nature is perfect for distilling where detail and precision is everything. Together, they make a perfect match to create something special and bring new excitement to the gin category. Like their backpacking trip filled with unforgettable experiences and amazing flavours along the way, their story is one of adventure and discovery.


They knew from the start that they wanted to develop and distil the gin themselves. They wanted each bottle to tell the story of their backpacking adventure and to create a gin that was unique, personal, and full of love and passion. The process of recipe development, brand design, and setting up the distillery ready for production took 3 and a half years. Tarsier Gin is the product of a true devotion to the craft.


The gin is named after the Tarsier, a small primate the size of your hand with big eyes which is only found in Southeast Asia. They are the perfect embodiment of the brand that started from small beginnings and has big flavour and personality!


Tarsier Conservation

Every bottle sold allows Tarsier to donate 10% of the profits to conservation projects that protect the tarsier and its habitat. Tarsier’s first partner is the Philippine Tarsier Foundation on the island of Bohol in the Philippines. You can find out more in the video below –


 The Gins

Inspired by travels to the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia, Tarsier have crafted gins that tell the authentic story of Southeast Asia.
The botanicals are prepared by hand. This includes cracking the Kampot Pepper cutting the Calamansi in half -the whole fruit is used in the distillation to maximise the fresh citrus aroma and taste. The botanicals are macerated in Neutral Grain Spirit overnight, before being distilled in traditional copper alembic stills, named after Florencia & Graciano, Sherwin’s Filipino grand parents. Tarsier is produced using the London Dry method and is always a single-shot distillation.
The signature Southeast botanicals chosen for the gin each have a story behind them. A journey that led to their discovery. From Calamansi (a small green citrus fruit that combines the flavours of mandarin and lime), to Galangal (a close relative of ginger). Delicious!


From the white sands of Boracay to the street food of Bangkok, the bustling streets of Saigon and the majestic temples of Angkor Wat, Tarsier Gin takes you on a journey of adventure and discovery.

Inspired by the cuisine of Southeast Asia, Tarsier is a citrus forward gin with aromatic & savoury mid-notes and a long peppery finish.
