Antidote Gin, a French Deligh, is now in the Philippines

Indulge in the essence of Art de Vivre with every delicious sip.

Forget booking a ticket to Paris to explore French delights  – Antidote, the ultimate French gin experience is now in the Philippines! The name ‘Antidote’ poses as a conceptual thought, stemming from Tonic based drinks from the English colonies that exerted taste and healing properties. With Tonic drinks gaining reception and favorability, Groupe Grand Chais De France (GCF) drew inspiration from this historical bit. It mastered the Antidote signature, a gin from a blend of French grapes.

Mr. Fábio Ide and Mr. Chris Brancamonte, distributors of Antidote in the Philippines, expressed their excitement about introducing this unique spirit to the local market. “We are excited to offer Antidote gin to the Filipinos because it brings a unique and high-quality spirit to a market with a growing appreciation for craft beverages. Antidote gin’s distinct flavors and premium ingredients can appeal to the sophisticated palate of Filipino consumers increasingly seeking out new and diverse drinking experiences.” 

Gin consumption in the Philippines is booming largely because of curious consumers, who are open to trying new flavors such as the Antidote.

“We and our team describe Filipino gin drinkers as adventurous and discerning individuals who appreciate the quality and uniqueness of their beverages. They are keen on exploring new flavors and enjoy the experience of trying craft and artisanal spirits. Filipino gin enthusiasts value the social and cultural aspects of drinking, often integrating gin into social gatherings and celebrations. They are knowledgeable about their preferences and are open to innovative blends that can complement the rich culinary heritage of the Philippines”

said Mr. Ide and Mr. Brancamonte when asked about the behavior and preferences of the Filipino gin drinkers.

The arrival of the French-inspired spirit takes the spotlight in the Food & Beverage industry, a gin on the rise that is defined by sophistication and individualism. With every sip of the gin, be ready to experience the epitome of Art de Vivre (the French art of living)

Among the Gin diversity, Antidote has also swayed the hearts of those who would prefer to go zero percent — alcohol-free and sugar-free. While some may not taste the difference with the 0%, it is formulated as thoughtfully and tastefully as the fellow gin iterations. This gin is produced with water from the Northern Vosges mountains in France and has hints of spice and citrus.

Antidote Gin Botanical Distillate 0%, P1,990 Spices, and ginger appear on the palate with a clean, complex finish of juniper and cardamom. 

The family of Antidote has the classic Gin foundation, compounded with additional and surprising elements of flavors that remind users of Summertime in Europe. From Fruits to Florals, each Antidote is made with the freshest and most exotic components. For Gin enthusiasts, it’s a specially-made drink enjoyed on its own, but for bartenders – it’s a specially-made spirit that heightens the process of mixology.
