Upstart Indian distiller Nao Spirits brings the flavors of the Himalayas to a fragrant, floral, and citrusy Gin.

Nao Spirits came to life in 2015 as the entrepreneurial brainstorm of to local bar owners looking to build a locally influenced craft Gin in India — the place where the Gin & Tonic was invented. It helped that one of them — cofounder Anand Virami — had worked in the marketing and brand management departments of Moët Hennessy, William Grant & Sons (Glenfiddich), and Rémy Cointreau. So the two men purchased a small copper still named Agatha and began experimenting with Indian botanicals to find just the right combinations.

"Hapusa" has a double meaning for this Gin. In India, it’s the name of the common Mango fruit that Portuguese traders called Alphonso. In Celtic-influenced languages of the UK it means "Happy" or "Happiness."

Hapusa Himalayan Dry Gin is made from botanical infusions that you would find in the kitchen cabinets of nearly every Indian household — including Himalayan juniper, turmeric, mango, ginger, cardamom, coriander seeds, gondhoraj limes, and almonds.

Smartass Corner:
Gondhoraj limes have been called "The King of Limes." Often confused with the Kaffir lime, the Gondhoraj is actually a cross between a regular lime and a mandarine orange. Attempts to grow this exceptionally fragrant fruit outside of India’s Bengal region have failed.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is fresh and crisp with fragrant citrus notes with a dash of pine.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
Taken neat, the flavor profile leads with the Gondhoraj limes in all of their fragrant glory followed by almond cookies, pine resin, tons of floral notes, and a pleasant spice.

Finish
The finish is brisk and clean with a sharp ginger note over a pine base.
