Berlin Dry Gin - Berliner Brandstifter

While consumers might have balked at the idea of a “German gin” two decades ago, the past few years have seen the introduction of new products from Berlin, Munich and even the Black Forest - like Monkey 47.
For Vincent Honrodt—the founder of Berliner Brandstifter, which launched its own Berlin Dry Gin in 2013 — was a matter of choosing the right local ingredients.
Honrodt, who is not a distiller by training, but grew up with the local homemade spirits of his grandparents’ generation, started his company with the idea of producing an upmarket version of Kornbrand, a traditionally downmarket German spirit with a passing resemblance to vodka. The challenge with Kornbrand was to transform a product with a reputation for being cheap into something that would sit comfortably in a middle class liquor cabinet. The strategy—which involved a pleasingly minimal bottle design and an emphasis on high-quality local production—worked, and his Kornbrand sales started to grow.
From there, gin seemed the next logical step. His idea was to make a gin that drew heavily on botanicals native to Berlin. Although juniper would remain dominant, he began to experiment with different combinations of local wildflowers. One of the flowers he chose was Waldmeister, which, in syrup form, is well known to all Berliners as one the principal flavors of Berliner Weisse, a sweetened beer that remains popular throughout the city.
In addition to Waldmeister and juniper, Vincent included elderflower and fresh cucumber in the distillation. These botanicals give the Berlin Dry a floral and sweet taste.

Citadelle | France

Origin France
Alcoholic Volume 44º
Type London Dry
Known Botanicals Liquorice, almond, root and angelica seed, cinnamon, cardamom, cassia, coriander seed, cumin, anise star, fennel, grains of paradise, orange and lemon peels, iris root, nutmeg, cubeba pepper, satureja, verbena and juniper.

Brief Description
The Citadelle Gin is produced in the Southwestern region of France, the land of Cognac. Alexandre Gabriel, Citadelle's master-distiller, used an old Geneviere recipe which he found in the city of Dunkirk, dating back to the eighteenth century. In addition, he added the tradition of Pierre Ferrand and started the production of Citadelle in small stills of copper heated with direct flame and without steam (naked flame) - like Cognac is made. This type of heating is noted when we taste it. It's rounder and smoother than most Gins as a result of the botanicals caramelization inside the still. Produced using the 19 botanicals, the Citadelle offers spicy notes of cinnamon, anise and nutmeg but also a jasmine perfume.

Beefeater 24 | England

Origin England
Alcoholic Volume 45º
Type London Dry
Known Botanicals Liquorice, almond, root and angelica seed, Chinese green tea, Sencha Japanese tea, coriander seed, iris root, orange, lemon and grapefruit peel and juniper.

Brief Description
Brits like tea. Brits like Gin. Gin with tea? Of course. We do not know if this was the reason behind the creation of Beefeater 24 but the results speak for themselves. By adding grapefruit, Chinese green tea and Japanese sencha tea to the original Beefeater recipe, Desmond Payne created their London Dry. The Beefeater 24 is fresher, softer and more floral than the Beefeater Dry. But it is the scent of flowers that we feel when we open the bottle. The juniper notes are less noticed. On the palate, we are surprised by the softness, the elegant and citrus presence of grapefruit and an astringency in the end, signed by green tea.

Blackwoods 60º | Scotland

Origin Scotland
Alcoholic Volume 60º
Type London Dry
Known Botanicals Liquorice, angelica root, cinnamon, citrus peel, coriander seed, mountain daisy, nutmeg, sea rose, meadowsweet and juniper.

Brief Description
It is from the beautiful landscape of the Shetland islands, North of Scotland, that the Blackwood's comes from. Using the local flora, this Gin carries all the richness and cultural heritage of the region. The recipe has a Nordic origin, and reflects the previous Viking domain. The main botanicals, such as angelica, rose from the sea, meadowsweet and marigold are locally sourced. You should expect a citric and herbal London Dry brought by the Shetland botanicals. The close connection between the Blackwood's and the environment that surrounds it makes it a tribute to the year in which they are produced, hence it is Vintage gin.

Wild Snow Dog | Portugal

Origin Portugal
Alcoholic Volume 40º
Type Distilled Gin
Known Botanicals Almond, angelica root, cinnamon, cassia, coriander seed, kumquat, nutmeg, rose, lemon peel and juniper.

Brief Description
Serra da Estrela - the highest point in Portugal - is one of the few places where the juniper plant grows in its natural state. It is also the region where many liqueurs and spirits are produced. The combination between experience and source of wild juniper was the perfect setting for the development of a new Gin.
The primacy was naturally given to juniper but sweeter botanicals were added to the distillation in a more contemporary approach to Gin. Wild Snow Dog has spices such as cinnamon or cassia, the sweetness of the kumquat or the greasiness of the almond.
The result is a very pleasant Gin either on the nose or the mouth with the juniper coming first, soon followed by the warm touch of cinnamon and cassia and a citrus component less noted than in most London Dry.

Niemand Gin

The capital of Lower Saxony Hannover has never been a Gin place. This is changing. The ambiance and the producers are following the European Gin trend. After Hannover Dry, now it’s time for the Niemand Dry Gin.
Niemand’s slogan "no one is like you" and its soft pink bottle makes it different than most of other London Dry Gins. This is not necessarily an ordinary juniper distillate. There was quite a experimentation here. Niemand Gin has a playful touch and a flowery, fresh character, resulting from the botanicals used. Sandalwood, lavender and rosemary play an influential role. They ensure a velvety warm taste with a floral note. But seven other botanicals - giving a total of ten - are used in this Gin that comes from the Destillerei in Hannover: juniper, pine nuts and ginger are also in it, as well as cinnamon, apple, coriander and vanilla.
Behind Niemand Gin are two creative entrepreneurs Sebastian Otto and Torben Paradiek who had already brought the "Gin Flight" Spices to the market last year. A few months ago they naturally decided to follow up with their own Gin.
For the perfect serve, the two Niemand producers recommend a Gin & Tonic with a lot of ice, a slice of apple and a fresh sprig of rosemary.
