Nao Spirits is a craft gin company.
Basic Information
Anand Virmani and his wife Aparajita Ninan started Nao Spirits & Beverages in 2016. The startup was initially founded in Delhi, although its distillery was set up in Goa. Over time, Nao Spirits shifted its base to Goa. With a small distillery in Goa, Nao Spirits has now branched out its distribution network to eight Indian cities and 14 countries across the globe. The startup has a subsidiary office in the UK. The startup has two gin brands under its umbrella - Greater Than and Hapusa. Nao Spirits sources its bottles, labels, and a few botanicals from abroad. However, most of the botanicals, along with the neutral wheat spirit, are procured from various parts of the country and distilled in Goa, in a copper pot still. The price varies for both the gins from state to state, based on the differing tax and distribution structures.
