Visit to Amázzoni Distillery

Naia, Inara, Iara, Amana and Jaci. These are the indigenous names of the stills where Amázzoni Gin labels are produced on a farm in Porto Real, in the interior of Rio de Janeiro. Starting in March, the distillery will open its doors to visitors, offering guided tours, tastings, and harmonized lunches. The first four names represent indigenous entities related to water. The last one represents the Moon.

Elected the best distiller of 2020 at the World Gin Awards in London – the mecca of the Queen’s favorite spirit – Amázzoni is the first distillery in Brazil with specific stills for gin production and one of the largest in Latin America, producing 1,500 bottles per day (with a capacity of 12,000, but the demand has not reached that level yet), with 15% being exported to 15 countries, including the USA and England. In the 2018 edition of the same competition, it won the award for the best craft gin in the world. E-commerce sales, which began during the pandemic, now account for 20% of total sales.
