Our Process

Foraged Botanicals

Handcrafted from 28 botanicals, 22 of which are locally sourced and foraged across the Philippine islands, our flagship ARC Botanical Gin offers a citrus-forward botanical mix that includes pomelo, oranges and calamansi, Benguet pine from the Cordillera Mountains of northern Luzon, fresh mango from our family farm in Pangasinan, and a medley of fresh tropical flowers that include sampaguita, ylang-ylang and kamia.

Artisanal Distilling

Our state-of-the-art 450-liter CARL hybrid copper pot still allows us to undertake a slow, carefully controlled 8-hour distillation. The importance of copper cannot be underestimated, which is a hallmark of our custom CARL pot still, its whiskey helmet and the efficient 7-plate column. This ensures we fully capture the flavors and aromas from our rich botanical recipe for the best possible gin taste profile.

During each distillation process, our blend of alcohol vapor and essential oils and flavors is in constant contact with our still’s copper interior. Being highly reactive, the copper helps removing sulfur and other undesirable and “off” flavors from the spirit and the botanicals, giving ARC Botanical Gin its distinctive and flavorful taste.

ARC GIN is made via artisinal distilling

Pure Laguna Water

After distillation, we slowly hydrate our spirits to a bottling strength using clean, pure spring water drawn from underground aquifers fed by the watershed of Mt. Makiling Nature Reserve in Laguna.
