Our story


Eskaepe gin is a unique sensory experience for gin lovers seeking something powerful, uplifting, all encompassing, that begins with the first breath inhaled and carries through long after the last sip has been swallowed.

 

 

Extra-ordinary first of all in its artfully blended flavours. 

Eskaepe Ikigai’s first nose note is that of the sakura flower, or Japanese cherry blossom, in high flowering – hand-picked in the few short weeks where the flowers are their most beautiful and aromatic, at their best.  

Its lower nose note is Yuzu lemon, citric and tangy.  In the mouth the remaining 17 botanicals including Sichuan pepper provoke a floral explosion on the taste buds.  

 

So powerful indeed, that although Eskaepe Ikigai can be complemented with your favorite G&T mixers or in a summer cocktail, it can also be enjoyed pure, on ice.

 

Secondly extra-ordinary by the traditional methods in which it is distilled. 

 

The precise alchemy of botanicals that flow through Eskaepe gin are distilled using the traditional methods of a premium London dry gin, a rich heritage that we are proud to honor.  

 

Our distiller, De Cort, in the heart of the Belgian Pajottenland, distills the old fashioned way, creating a mash of ingredients and distilling in large copper stills.  Which in turn generates the most powerful of flavor blends, crafted in small batches to ensure the utmost quality every time.  No aromas or additives here, this is the real deal.

 

 

  

 

Finally, extra-ordinary in the experience that Eskaepe procures.  If you close your eyes and savour the moment, you are transported somewhere else, eastern and oriental, blossoming and billowing in the wind. You can almost touch it, you have been overwhelmed.

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

Choose this moment.  

It is Your moment. 

Eskaepe from the ordinary.
