Phil Harding (Co-founder) shares the story behind the business.
To create an Oriental spirit, it has to be authentic. That’s why founder Michel Lu traveled the Silk Road searching far and wide for ingredients to create a range of spirits like no other.
Alchemists in the Orient have been perfecting the art of crafting since 800 A.D., so instead of sourcing alcohols from industrial manufacturers Michel set about selecting the best of what Asia already has to offer… sourcing the finest spirits and ingredients directly and ethically.
These perfectly blended spirits are your guide through the exotic and opulent Silk Road. But this level of perfection doesn’t simply come from ingredients and distillation alone. Oh no. From fermentation to the bottling and labelling, everything is done with love and by hand, right up to when it’s in yours.
Through its story, messaging and communication The Orientalist Spirits aims show you the real Orient, not the Hollywood version! So open a bottle….. and your eyes!
