Already a smash success in South America (Brazil’s no.1 Premium Gin) and set to hit the UK spirits scene this summer, Vitoria Regia is the award-winning artisanal organic gin that combines quality handcraft distilling with exotic ‘new world’ flavours. Named in honour of Queen Victoria’s Amazonian lily pad and the Brazilian symbol of botany, Vitoria Regia uses exclusively natural ingredients and sustainable techniques to produce gin fit for a queen.
A Sustainable, New World of Gin
An organic neutral sugar cane base spirit, Vitoria Regia is available as an Organic Dry gin (44% ABV), as well as four exciting new world flavours: Organic Rose, Organic Tropical and Organic Citrus (38% ABV). Each gin features base botanicals of juniper, cardamom, lime, coriander and all spice, with exotic fruits and spices added to create the exciting different flavours and infuse the essence of Brazil into each and every sip.
Organically certified and arguably one of the world’s most sustainable gin brands, Vitoria Regia is handcrafted in 350L copper pot column stills, and made using only natural ingredients, with no added sugar or artificial colouring. All sugar cane used in Vitoria Regia gin is grown in fields without the use of pesticides and is transported to the distillery via bio-fuelled power collection trucks, ensuring all harvesting is 100% sustainable.
With sustainability at the core of the brand, every step of the distilling and bottling process has been carefully crafted to minimise impact on the environment. The gin, created in recent years by renowned Master Distiller Erwin Weimann, is carefully crafted at the Vitoria Regia distillery located in the southern tip of Brazil and powered solely by solar energy – everything from the lights to the bottling machines. The still is the only element exempt from solar energy, instead powered by recycled organic matter produced from distillation – any excess alcohol is re-distilled to make biofuel whilst left over sediment is converted into organic fertilizer, leaving nothing to go to waste.
Vibrant and varied, the core Vitoria Regia range has been designed to excite and satisfy both the most traditional and adventurous of gin drinkers. A classic with a subtle twist, the Organic Dry is made with an organic neutral sugar cane base, and blended with juniper, cardamon, allspice, coriander and lime peel to offer a light yet complex finish, best served with a wedge of lime and rosemary. Instantly recognisable with its delicate shade of blush pink and pronounced berry notes, the Organic Rose boasts a light sweetness with a flavour profile of hibiscus, cranberry and blueberry, with floral hibiscus notes on the nose, perfect paired with dried hibiscus and a twist of lemon peel.
New to the UK range and a first for spirits shelves across the country, the Organic Tropical provides a sensational serve that transports you to sunnier climes. Best enjoyed with ice cold tonic water and a slice of fresh mango, this variety boasts notes of mango, pineapple, ginger and curcumin. For a refreshing and zesty choice, the Organic Citrus showcases the best bitter citrus flavours, packed with lime, grapefruit, mint and lemongrass, with fresh mint and lime zest providing the finishing flourish.
A spirit suited for all scenarios, Vitoria Regia can be enjoyed with your favourite tonic and an exotic garnish or used as a base for a range of creative cocktails. A delicious choice for al fresco summer sipping, the Negroni Citrus is a zingy blend of Organic Citrus, Aperol and Vermouth; whilst the Mango Smash is a vibrant mix of Organic Tropical, mango and ginger cubes, lime juice and sugar syrup.
Vitoria Regia has won a host of globally recognised awards, with highlights including Gold in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2019 and Gold in the World Gin Awards 2020 for the Organic Dry Gin. The Organic Rose has also been recognised and awarded Best Flavoured Brazilian Gin in the World Gin Awards 2020. Most recently, Vitoria Regia’s Organic Tropical was awarded Gold in the Best Flavoured Brazilian Gin in the World Gin Awards 2022 and Silver in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2022, whilst the Organic Citrus received Silver in both 2022 competitions.
