Phuket’s Kata Rocks resort has now added to the luxury experience with the launch of a limited-edition brand of locally distilled gin.
Named The Spirit of Kata Rocks, the ultra-small batch gin pays homage to its home region with a slew of vibrant flavors. It starts with a healthy infusion of juniper berries and Angelica wild ginseng that is then finished with a bold flourish of local Thai herbs and Asian spices. Over 10 different botanicals are featured, including notes of fresh lemongrass, fresh lemon peel, coriander seed, fresh bergamot leaf, Sichuan peppercorn, fresh green pepper, green cardamom, white mugwort, fresh pomelo peel, Thai basil, and high mountain oolong tea.
The gin has also lead to the creation of a new series of cocktails now on offer at The Oceanfront Bar. These include Kata Rocks Negroni, which uses gin infused with fresh Thai ginger: the cocktail is stirred with Campari and La Quintinye Rouge, before being topped off with a splash of ginger ale. Kata Rocks Secret is clean and refreshing with fresh cucumber slices, Thai sweet basil, and lime. The signature Kata Rocks Gin & Tonic is muddled with premium Fever-Tree Indian tonic and served with fresh organic Chiang Mai strawberries. Guests are also encouraged to try their favorite gin-based cocktails made using the special edition gin.
With the introduction of its own limited-edition gin, Kata Rocks now houses over thirty different gin labels, making it one of the largest collections of gin on Phuket.
