The Crazy Singh’s ‘Crazy Gin’ “The World’s First Clear Lassi Gin”
Taking you on a journey of Cultures and Experiences.
Now this is something truly unusual and entirely delicious that any gin fanatic would be over the moon to receive!
Crazy Gin is a genuinely unique, clear, premium gin that fuses British and Indian cultures together to create the smoothest and most versatile gin you’re likely to have ever tasted. Made by distilling a traditional British gin base of complex botanicals with crossover Indian spices and a lassi (a much-loved Punjabi yoghurt-based drink), the gin is then fat-washed in ghee for a luxuriously silky, creamy mouthfeel!
