Rebel City Distillery is located in Cork city in the south-west of Ireland. Cork is known as the “Rebel City” for its storied history of rebellions over multiple centuries. Known for its beautiful harbour, foodie culture, and friendly people, there is a reason Corkonians often call it “the true capital of Ireland.” The distillery itself is located in Cork’s old Henry Ford & Sons factory – the first one that was ever built outside of America!
Honouring Revolutionary Women
Maharani Gin symbolizes revolutionary Kerala rebel spirits and figures of female empowerment. All the distillery’s botanicals are sourced from a women’s organic farming co-operative in Kerala. The Gin’s brand name, Maharani or ‘high queen,’ comes from this region. It pays tribute to Kerala women who are known for their strength and importance in society.
A Uniquely Flavoured Gin to Savour
Maharani Gin offers a unique, but accessible flavour profile – a balanced mix of spice, citrus and sweetness rather than a juniper, pine forward traditional gin. This should be your next addition to your bar if you are tired of the traditional flavour profile of older style gins. Maharani Gin pairs particularly well with spicy food. We recommend trying it with your next curry. The spicy herbs of the curry and refreshing botanicals of the gin are a match made in heaven.
