Through an evocative blend of Yucatán botanicals, Katún Gin captures the region’s fascinating botanicals and rich cultural heritage – a unique and entirely Mexican gin, and a first for the Yucatán.
Katún Gin’s 17 botanicals are macerated for at least ten days. These botanicals include four varieties of chillies and aromatic flowers from the Yucatán, as well as various spices and fruits, all sourced from Mexico with the exception of juniper, the only imported ingredient.
This spirit is then distilled in a 250-litre copper alembic still handmade in Portugal. This infused distillate is later mixed with pure cenote water, filtered and bottled.

Katún Gin has been created by four Mexican friends and one Spaniard, who together envisioned a unique, entirely Mexican gin. The team worked for a full year in search of the best combination of botanical ingredients from the Yucatán, drawing on the support of connoisseurs of the region. They settled on a botanical mix sourced entirely from Mexico, with the exception of juniper. Production began at the Conkal Distillery in 2017.
