Paper Lantern Gin is a modern gin inspired by the flavors of Southeast Asia. It is the first product of Paper Lantern Distilling, a craft spirits brand headquartered in Singapore. The base spirit is made in-house at the distillery from rice, offering a unique grain-to-glass experience. Moving away from commercially sourced neutral grain spirits gives Paper Lantern Gin a noticeable silkiness when you take your first sip.
