The Cabinet Gin

After launching Billion Air, the country’s first gluten-free vodka, Varun Murpana is ready with another white spirit. This time, it’s a gin.

Murpana, who belongs to a jewellery manufacturing family, set up Sonaar Beverages, which has a facility in Palghar, near Mumbai, about two years ago, and follows the ‘distill in America and bottle in India’ route.

The sales of Billion Air (Rs 19,990 a bottle in Mumbai), he says, have exceeded expectations, and Murpana has similar expectations from The Cabinet. “It’s a classic London Dry gin—it’s juniper-and-cucumber-forward, and there’s a hint of spice,” he says.
