A fresh and bright Swiss Gin based upon a classic cherry-based local Spirit called Kirsch.

Sometimes no one person or company is responsible for making a new Spirit. Sometimes it’s a collaboration. And that’s what we have here. The Clouds Bar is a beautiful bistro and bar in the heart of Zürich. Bar manager Andreas Kloke collaborated with a local Swiss maker of Schnapps — Humbel Spezialitätenbrennerei — to create a signature Gin to serve in the bar. This is the result.

Clouds Gin is very different and very Swiss. It all starts with a traditional Swiss Brandy made from cherries called Kirsch. It’s into this cherry-sourced Spirit that they infuse classic Gin botanicals, including juniper, coriander, thyme, sage, lemons, oranges. The combination brings out an aromatic fresh and lightly fruity note. It’s a very good addition to the great work in Gins coming out of Central Europe.

Flavor Spiral TM
About the Flavor Spiral
What does Clouds Gin taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Clouds 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.

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.
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.
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.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
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.
