IMPORTED EXCLUSIVELY FOR THE ITALIAN MARKET
The name Jodhpur is inspired by the second city of the state of Rajasthan, in the north-west of the India, near the famous Spice Trade Route, used by ancient Asian civilization as commercial route for the commerce of species, gold, silk and fine fabrics.
The commercial route started in Eastern India (Ceylon, Sumatra and Java) and followed a marine path, but when the muslin invaded the Hindustan, they had to develop alternative ways through the Rajasthan, to travel safer. This event helped the development of the region and the city of Jodhpur, where you can still see the mark of this important commercial activities.
Jodhpur is universally known as the “Blue City”, cause of the color of the houses near the “Mehrangarh Fort”. These were the houses of the Brahmins, the highest and the most important social caste for the hindù religion. In the past they were considered as gods among men an they were responsible of the spread of the knowledge in the community.
The Jodgpur London Dry pays homage to this fascinating and esotic city. This gin, thanks to the accurate choice of high level herbs ( some of the are cultivated in India),communicates seduction, exotism, knowledge, fragrance, energy and personality at the same time.
