Life is all about discovery. In 1848 Naturalist Henry Walter Bates left on his own journey of discovery to the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest. He spent the next 11 years there studying many different life forms and amassing over 500 different types of butterflies. That is why the butterfly is the symbol for Bates Gin.
Henry Bates’ Theory of Mimicry became a major contribution to Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. It is in honor of his discovery that we created Bates Gin. Now you can discover it too!
In keeping with Henry Bates’ discoveries in the Amazon, many of the botanicals infused in Bates Gin come from the Brazilian Rainforest. The result is a gin with its own distinctive character that will set you off on your own journey of discovery!
Bates Gin was conceived through the same meticulous analysis with which Henry Bates approached the study of entomology. It is handcrafted in Brazil using the exclusive and proprietary reverse multi-distillation process invented by Master Distiller Joao Fucci. He began with the purist 100% Cane Neutral Spirit made from organic Brazilian sugar cane and blended it with Juniper and many exotic botanicals from the Amazon Rainforest. The result is a smooth aromatic modern gin that will delight all of your senses – truly the Evolution of Gin!
Joao Fucci has been a renowned Master Distiller for over 30 years. He developed the reverse multi-distillation process that consists of 27 carefully controlled distillations. This provides him with total control over the purity and quality of the spirits he makes.
