In a world brimming with libations, a revelation has emerged—a liquid treasure that promises to transport you to the mystical heart of India. It is a masterpiece that marries tradition with innovation, inviting gin enthusiasts and flavour explorers alike to embark on an extraordinary journey with Mohulo by Smoke Lab. This extraordinary elixir pays homage to the sacred Mahua flower, a floral gem native to the Indian subcontinent that not only tantalises the taste buds but also weaves a captivating narrative of India’s botanical abundance.
Introducing Mohulo, India’s First Sipping Gin
The tale unfolds with the mysterious whispers of a tribal elixir, tantalising the senses of Varun Jain, the architect behind this amazing drink. As he immersed himself in the world of the Baiga tribe and their extraordinary Mahua concoctions, an epiphany washed over him. It was a call to share with the world the ultimate embodiment of Mahua liquor. And that’s where the story of Mohulo began.
No adventure is complete without a guiding hand, and in this tale, that artist is Jamie Baxter. He is a name synonymous with the art of fine spirits across the globe. Aligned with Varun’s vision, he took up the mission to unveil this hidden treasure to the world, crafting a masterpiece that encapsulates the very essence of Mahua and the soul of India.
This is not just a gin; it’s a love affair between delicate florals, vibrant citrus, and the timeless embrace of juniper. Smooth and well-balanced, it marries the subtle sweetness of Mahua with the classic gin botanicals, leading to a lingering finish adorned with a hint of spice and a subtle, floral aftertaste.
