How it all started and why a Brazilian Gin
Our founder Mike moved to São Paulo in 2013 and, as a big culinary fan and arts admirer, he fell in love with the country. When studing Brazil's history and culture he started appreciating aspects different to the stereotypes know to most tourists. Arapuru is an attempt to capture the essence of Brazil in form of a gin, by infusing unique local botanicals and praising brazilian local cultures and artistic herritage.
To start this exciting journey, Mike asked the creator of his favorite gin Martin Miller’s, Rob Dorset, to join forces to create a recipe with ingredients from all five regions of Brazil. Arapuru is distilled in the interior of the state of São Paulo.
