Chinese Botanical Craft Gin

Crimson Pangolin is an international awarded gin, proudly distilled in bottled in the ancient Chinese city of Changsha, a region of the Middle Kingdom so deeply steeped in history, there sit tombs dating back to the bygone days of the Zhou dynasty. All our ingredients are 100% from Asia and distilled in copper stills by our Master distiller Mark Lloyd.

Why Pangolin?

Despite being protected by national and international laws, the pangolin is still the most trafficked animal on the planet. In the last ten years, it is estimated that over one million pangolins have been poached from the wild and illegally traded on the black market. Crimson Pangolin works with international pangolin conservation charities in order to prevent this trade from taking place, and educating the public on this magnificent creature.
