Made in a copper pot still and containing exotic botanicals poppy seed and dragon eye, which is a cousin of the lychee fruit, Bulldog Gin's Anshuman Vohra is the founder and CEO of the relatively new but already hip Bulldog Gin Company.
While gin is only gin if juniper is its dominant flavor, the remaining botanicals distilled into that gin differentiate one brand from another. Included in Bulldog's flavoring ingredients are poppy and dragon eye, both of which can be notably traced in the taste. Poppy is a familiar herbal taste, similar to poppy seeds that top some bread, but what about this dragon eye? It's a native Chinese fruit that is also called Longan and is similar to the lychee. Dragon eye has been used since ancient times to stimulate vitality and sexual stamina.
