How does a high-tech, artisanal Gin crafted exclusively from hand-picked, locally-sourced, organic botanicals from the warm Croatian countryside sound? Yeah, we thought so.

The Artisan Gin is produced in Croatia, using cutting-edge, vacuum distillation technology. In traditional distillation, sensitive flavors can be lost due to the high boiling point of ethanol. In vacuum distillation, however, vacuum is created in the still by using pumps and the boiling point is lowered to room temperature. Hence, it is also called cold distillation. This method allows the botanicals added to preserve their complex chemical composition and delicate flavors, resulting in a much more pronounced aroma. Naturally, at Artisan Gin, they chose this method, since this London dry Gin contains 14 carefully selected botanicals. Well worth preserving.

Hand-picked in collaboration with local farmers from the Croatian countryside, known for its abundance of aromatic, herbal smells (If you've been to Croatia in the summer, you know exactly what we mean.), the botanical selection in this Gin includes juniper berries, coriander seeds, angelica root, lemon and orange peels, almonds, olive tree leaves, elderflower, lavender and root powder from the Croatioan national flower, the iris. Quite the Brady bunch, but it is a well thought out selection, blended and carefully distilled to create a limited edition, premium London dry Gin. Crafted in small batches (well, the name is the Artisan Gin), it comes in a stunning, sleek black bottle, designed by the distiller. It is a beautifully balanced, new twist on the dry Gin experience with the touch of Croatian countryside. Basically a summer evening in a glass.

About the Flavor Spiral
What does The Artisan Gin taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in The Artisan Gin and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

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

It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
