Holi - Chai Gin



Family, Friends, Fun, Festival...The 4 F's bring an order to life and remind us to live in the moment and appreciate our blessings, including those around us. Holi, our chai spiced gin, is best when shared with those around you. 

Louisville handcrafted gin with traditional botanicals and juniper is given an untraditional twist. Inspired by our founder’s Indian heritage, this gin is spiced with masala chai, presenting an elegantly smooth experience. Holi brings cocktails to a deliciously unknown level, whether it lets mixologists artistry shine or gives a new take to a classic.



The MEANING behind the NAME

We wanted a name that brought meaning and purpose. Paying homage to the Indian culture, we decided on the name "Holi".


Holi is the Indian festival of color, celebrating life, happiness, good over evil, and relationships old / new / repaired.

We wanted our bottle to stand out and break the mold of the typical spirit. Utilizing the spirit of the Holi festival helped us with that goal. 


The STORY and the RECIPE

Kartik's family planted their roots here in Louisville 20 years ago in search of the American dream. He now considers himself a Kentucky boy, building his business here, marrying a Kentucky girl, Louisville is home. Kartik Kamat’s goal is to bring Kentucky to the world and the world to Kentucky. 

When you go to his parent’s home, Kartik’s mom will make you a cup of chai tea. India used its spices to innovating a tea with its spices, making chai an integral part of their culture. “Sharing a cup of chai with my mom is a sacred moment. It’s the same feeling as having a glass of bourbon with friends and family”. Kartik decided to mash it all together.
