ALFA Brands teams up with Prescribed Spirits to add flavor to duty free

A light, soft and subtle gin, Prescribed Spirits’ American Dry Gin is distilled with five hand-blended botanical ingredients

ALFA Brands is pleased to announce a partnership with Prescribed Spirits, a company that is known for its hand crafted American gin. Based in Miami, Florida, Prescribed Spirits was established in 2015.

Bringing a whole new meaning to shaken and stirred, the company’s profile features an American Dry Gin and a Barrel Finished Gin, which are produced with the highest level of ingredients in small batches, using a 250-gallon pot still. Described as a light, soft and subtle gin, the former product is distilled with five hand-blended botanical ingredients: juniper, coriander, cardamom, orange peel and pink peppercorns and perfect for classic martinis and gin cocktails as well as on its own.

Keeping with the same unique recipe as the American Gin, Prescribed Spirits’ Barrel Finished Gin is finished in brand new American Oak barrels, which allows the gin to blend with the oak and absorb the flavors of an aged spirit. During the aging stage, the gin takes on vanilla and oak notes with a touch of spice, which creates a dry finish.

Allen Fazendin, Founder, Prescribed Spirits, says: “Prescribed Spirits is excited to announce its partnership with ALFA Brands and we look forward to growing our boutique gin brand in the duty-free marketplace.”

Amy Hildreth, Operations Manager, ALFA Brands, shares: “We’re excited to add the first craft spirits to our portfolio and we’re looking forward to introducing Prescribed Spirits’ gin to our American customers.”
