Nicobar is an expertly crafted spirit with a strong yet delectably flowery flavour.

Nicobar is the only gin in the country that uses three distinct juniper kinds, making it unique. Citrus notes from sweet orange peel and coriander seeds add to the richness of this gin, resulting in a well-rounded flavour profile. Nicobar is a complex spirit that may be enjoyed on its own. AABL selected to acquire specialized copper stills for Nicobar’s superior craftsmanship and distillation on purpose. This thorough selection demonstrates our commitment to produce a high-quality gin that is customized to the distinct qualities that identify Nicobar.
