A fire-breathing dragon? While this Gin's ginger addition brings some heat, it's just the right amount to leave its balance intact.

Why would you name your company "Broken Bones"? The distillery was founded in Slovenia by Boštjan Marušič, Borut Osojnik, and Polona Preskar. They hadn’t named their fledgling business yet and were filling barrels of Whisky for aging. Boštjan and Borut had both just come from the hospital because one had broken a leg and the other his nose. As they tell it, the bones healed but the name stuck. They produce a tidy range of five Gins and a couple of Whiskies using custom-made stills in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia.

The green dragon is the symbol of Ljubljana, featured on its Coat of Arms. This Gin pays tribute to its home town with a touch of fiery ginger heat. Fueling it all is the same award-winning London Dry Gin that has brought these guys several awards. No need to worry, though. Despite all the fire-breathing imagery, it's an exceptionally well-balanced Spirit with that beautiful juniper-forward and floral base shining just as bright. And just like its brethren, this Gin has plenty of awards to show for it.

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.
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.
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.
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.
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
