Inspiration behind the product

Our Master Distiller and Founder, Daniel Nguyen

Prior to the distillery, Daniel worked extensively in sustainable agroforestry and ethnobotany. Following years of researching the biodiversity and ethnobotany of rural highland Vietnam, Daniel partnered with multi generational foragers and farmers in the highlands of Việt Nam to source botanicals for what would become the first gin ever distilled in the country. Now, working with over 70 families and 3 localities, Sông Cái works not only to build economic models to source botanicals but also partners with local communities in reforestation efforts and building native seed banks.

What makes it unique

With a fragrant nose, and smooth finish, the Sông Cái Floral Gin bottles the connection between Vietnam's vast deltas and cool highland regions. Using 18 carefully selected botanicals, this floral gin maintains its subtelty and taste within a cocktail, or can be a refreshing taste simply on the rocks.
