In a world teetering on the brink of ecological imbalance, the birth of Clouded Leopard gin emerges as a beacon of hope, the union between a passion for wildlife and the art of flavors. It was conceived by the visionary mind of chef and gastropub owner Will Phillips. This gin brand embarked on a noble mission to honor and protect the enigmatic clouded leopard, a creature on the brink of extinction that is rarely seen in the wild.
Driven by a deep love for both gin and the feline kingdom, Will drew on his expertise in culinary alchemy to craft a gin that will not only fill your mouth with vibrant flavor, it also champions the cause of wildlife conservation. Our commitment extends to supporting various organizations dedicated to the protection of leopards from the dangers they face in their natural habitats, as well as providing refuge for those in captivity, destined for a life of misery and exploitation.
With an original array of botanical resources at his disposal, Will delved into a summer heat wave, simulating the climate of India and South Asia, the home of the clouded leopard. His creations took shape thanks to the meticulous selection of ingredients of the highest quality and provenance. Fruits such as succulent mango and the exotic allure of Southeast Asian black pepper danced together in harmony, infusing the gin with an exotic symphony of flavors. The brightness of lemon zest stood as the jewel in the crown, adding a spicy, citrusy vibe that will delight your senses.
Aesthetically, Clouded Leopard gin is a masterpiece. The elegant signature bottle, adorned with Jonathan Gibbs’ striking illustration of the clouded leopard, captures the essence of this majestic creature. The bottle and packaging, meticulously designed by Sarah Rock, pay homage to the traditions of art, using the age-old technique of silkscreen printing.
Sarah Rock, an experienced graphic designer and art director, has brought her expertise to give the Clouded Leopard brand a visual appeal that captivates the eye. Her passion for food and drink, combined with over two decades of experience, ensured that every aspect of the brand’s design resonated with a deep appreciation for craftsmanship.
