Amazon-inspired Canaïma Gin launches with Penha Duty Free in the Caribbean

Amazon-inspired Canaïma Gin, in partnership with Penha Duty Free (via Innotri Limited), has launched in multiple locations across the Penha Duty Free retail footprint.

After a successful introduction in the UK, Spain, Italy, France, Denmark, Sweden, Germany and the United States, the brand – which pursues honoring and improving the quality of life of indigenous tribes in order to preserve their legacy — now expands into Travel Retail/ Duty Free.

Looking to offer something new and exciting as people begin travel-ing again, Penha is the first retailer in the region to offer Canaïma Gin in duty free. It is available in the Penha store in Curaçao at Hato International Airport, and in the Penha Duty Free St. Maarten stores, where it helped welcome passengers sailing on the Celebrity Millennium in June, the first cruise ship to sail the Caribbean in 15 months.

Canaïma Gin will also be in the assortment in Penha’s latest expansion in duty free retail at Ogle International Airport, Guyana. The store will open in Q3 of 2021.

This super premium gin is produced in the Destilerias Unidas. S.A (DUSA) distillery, the same producer of Diplomático Rum. It contains 19 botanicals: 10 from the Amazon, 1 from the distillery region and 8 traditional gin botanicals. The Amazonian botanicals are handpicked in collaboration with local communities and the fruits are individually distilled and then blended together to achieve the balance between herbaceous citrus flavors and sweet tropical notes.

From brand to bottle the whole Canaïma project is set on a sustain-able base, says the company: 10% of its sales are reinvested in the Amazon to support different NGOs and volunteer networks working to improve the quality of life of the different Amazonian indigenous communities.

The brand also does everything possible to work with non-toxic and recyclable materials and look for alternatives to minimize its ecological footprint.
