It’s like they captured a high mountain meadow in a bottle.

Liechtenstein is one of the smallest countries — just 62 square miles. It sits smack-dab between Switzerland and Austria in the Alps. So while The Alpinist is a legal company in Liechtenstein, it bills it’s core product as “Swiss Premium Dry Gin.” I guess the marketing team thought that “Liechtenstein” took up too much space on the bottle. Anyway, the company uses a distillery at the foot of the Alps using only water melted from the Aletch Glacier. Today they produce their signature Gin and a pair of Caribbean Rums that are tasty too.

Turns out that the melted glacier water makes a pretty big difference. The water is exceptionally “soft,” meaning that it had almost no dissolved minerals to impact the taste of distillation. The Alpinist Swiss Premium Dry Gin also has a local flare for flavor — it is filled with aromatic botanicals that grow wild in the high mountain valleys, including Silver Thistle, Lady’s Mantle, and Arnica. And yes, you can expect a fair amount of traditional “London Dry” ingredients as well. You’ll find Citrus zest a’plenty and enough juniper to let you know that you are drinking Gin. They keep the rest of the recipe a secret, but we suspect angelica root and lavender as well.

What does The Alpinist Premium Dry Gin taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in The Alpinist Premium Dry Gin and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Few Gin Distillers Make Their Own Alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral spirit: A commodity that in distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavour-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
