An epic London Dry Gin base with the addition of delicious Slovene linden honey.

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.

Their London Dry Gin is made from sugar beet molasses triple-distilled into a neutral Spirit at 96% ABV, then infused with botanicals in a London Dry style, but with an emphasis on florals, including Juniper, rose-hips, linden flowers, lemon zest, cardamom, and licorice root. It serves as the base for their Old Tom Gin which sees the addition of Slovene linden honey and a touch of distilled lemon peel. Being unfiltered, the honey gives the clear Spirit a neat golden tinge, as well as a pleasant sweetness.

Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!

As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
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.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
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.
