Won¬≠der¬≠ful¬≠ly craft¬≠ed and cop¬≠per dis¬≠tilled in small batch¬≠es by the Philip¬≠pines‚Äô first authen¬≠tic craft dis¬≠tillery, Full Cir¬≠cle Craft Distillers. 

Tast­ing Notes from The Curator

Arch¬≠i¬≠pel¬≠ago Botan¬≠i¬≠cal Gin or ARC Gin for short offers fresh high¬≠lights of pome¬≠lo and cala¬≠man¬≠si, with earthy corian¬≠der, savory juniper, pine and a round¬≠ing of man¬≠go on the nose. Hints of per¬≠fumed laven¬≠der are also evident.

On the palate, you taste fresh pome¬≠lo, dalan¬≠dan and cala¬≠man¬≠si, pine juniper spice. It main¬≠tains a flo¬≠ral dry¬≠ness from the angel¬≠i¬≠ca and chamomile, with notes of lemon¬≠grass, cin¬≠na¬≠mon and black pepper.

The fin­ish is cean and bal­anced. Juniper, cit­rus, with cool­ing notes from lemon balm and spicy cardamom.


This mas¬≠ter¬≠piece of a gin is unfil¬≠tered and leads to cloud¬≠ing when prop¬≠er¬≠ly chilled‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČtru¬≠ly a fla¬≠vor you can see! Sim¬≠ply enjoy on the rocks, or in any gin cock¬≠tail of choice- a mar¬≠ti¬≠ni, gin & ton¬≠ic or negroni. 

A Grandfather’s Legacy

The sto¬≠ry of Full Cir¬≠cle Craft Dis¬≠tillers start¬≠ed from a grandfather‚Äôs lega¬≠cy. A jour¬≠ney from Alsace to Saint Peters¬≠burg to the Pearl of the Ori¬≠ent, Mas¬≠ter Dis¬≠tiller Peter West¬≠fall arrived in Mani¬≠la in 1918 and found an oppor¬≠tu¬≠ni¬≠ty to apply his unique knowl¬≠edge and exper¬≠tise at a local brew¬≠ery. Tin¬≠ker¬≠ing with trop¬≠i¬≠cal fruits and botan¬≠i¬≠cals to extract their exot¬≠ic fla¬≠vors and aro¬≠mas, Peter‚Äôs ground¬≠break¬≠ing work led to inven¬≠tions that we endure today.

At present, the dis­tillery is still owned by the same fam­i­ly who respect­ful­ly embraces the time-hon­ored tra­di­tions of pre­ci­sion and craft, just as much as Peter Westfall’s own com­mit­ment to excel­lence and pre­ci­sion with hand­craft­ed arti­sanal spirits.

Storage Instructions

Store your bot¬≠tle of gin upright in a cool, dark place, ide¬≠al¬≠ly between 13 and 16¬įC. High¬≠er tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠tures will affect its fla¬≠vor and alter its taste. If you pre¬≠fer to drink your gin cold all the time, you may keep it in the freez¬≠er, as its ABV per¬≠cent¬≠age pre¬≠vents it from freez¬≠ing. Unopened bot¬≠tles can last for an indef¬≠i¬≠nite amount of time, but the clos¬≠er you get to the bot¬≠tom third of the bot¬≠tle, please con¬≠sume quick¬≠ly to pre¬≠vent oxi¬≠da¬≠tion and taste alteration.
