Altonaer Spirituosen Manufaktur

The Altona Spirits Company is based in the centre of Hamburg, and produces solely Gin Sul; a Portuguese inspired Gin. Set up in 2013 by Stephen Garbe, the distillery houses a 100 liter copper pot still.

Located in the city center, the distillery used to be home to a carpentry, and before that was used as a warehouse during the Second World War. After a trip to Portugal, Garbe fell in love with the country and wanted to create something as an ode to the local beauty.

He quit his job, scraped together his savings and learned how to distil Gin. The company often hosts tasting evenings in the distillery, but these must be booked in advance, although the shop is open daily.
