The Pink Gin was first popularised by the British Royal Navy as a remedy for sea sickness in colonial Malaya. A mix of Gin and Bitters, it soon became known in the region as Gin Pahit – Pahit translates to “bitter” in Malay.
The Brass Lion Pahit Pink Gin is a take on this classic drink with a distinctively Singaporean twist. Our house-made Brass Lion Singapore Bitters, together with The Singapore Dry Gin results in a full-bodied spiced gin – best sipped on the rocks or paired with ginger ale.
