Amuerte is the world’s only gin that is uniquely crafted with Peruvian Coca leaves. Long before the time of Pablo Escobar and of the Colombian drug dealers, the cocaine plant had a powerful and mystical role for the people who cultivated it. In ancient Peruvian society, cocaine leaves (coca leaves) were appreciated in the whole Inca Empire for their natural properties helpful to fight hunger and sicknesses.
The founders of Amuerte Gin witnessed how a local tribe chewed some cocaine leaves during a trip with rucksacks through the tropical forest. It was during this experience that they discovered the mystical flavour of the renowned coca leaf. The founders and their family are well skilled at transforming the taste of botanicals into unique gins, with a history dating back 112 years. This is the fourth generation to become experts at distilling gin.
Amuerte White Gin has a traditional juniper flavour profile, with the addition of Peruvian coca leaves and fresh coriander, finger lime and Sichuan pepper for an exotic twist. The ingredients are carefully harvested in high altitude rainforests, before being distilled by a master distiller in Belgium.
The bottle itself, a worthy display piece, is finished with 24 carat gold leaf, making it just as special as the luxurious and exotic gin inside.
With its unique flavour profile and richness, Amuerte White Edition is an excellent gin to use in gin and tonics and cocktails for a unique twist on your go-to favourites. Or visit Recipes for more inspiration.
