Tungi (pronounced “Toon-Jee”) is an eau-de-vie distilled from the fermented juice of the prickly pear, which grows wild on the remote Atlantic island of Saint Helena. A British overseas territory, Saint Helena is most famous as the place where Napoleon was exiled in 1815, and where he died in 1821.
Paul Hickling makes Tungi at his year-old distillery using German made Holstein equipment. It lies in a cool stone basement beneath Donny’s Bar – owned by Hickling’s business partner Donny Stevens - on Jamestown seafront. With its stepped side, a reference to “Jacob’s Ladder”, the world’s longest straight staircase which rises over 1,000 feet up a sheer cliff above Donny’s Bar, the bottle is one of the industry’s most unique.

Crystal clear.


Pungent, reminiscent of grappa but with notes of hairspray and pear drops.


Fiery with fruity pear notes and cracked black pepper heat.


Incredibly lasting. Black pepper and pear re-emerge but the dominant note is sour.
