A delicious, hand-crafted Dry Gin with a decidedly Bavarian twist.

Back in 2007 in a local Munich bar, Maximilian von Pückler was sipping on a Gin & Tonic with his friend and co-founder Daniel discussing the relative poor condition of the Gin available at the time. Well, as these things tend to go, that Gin-soaked conversation blossomed into a business plan. In 2008 they started in a backyard and cellar, taking a year to research what they were doing and develop a distilling ethos, opening the doors of The Duke Distillery with a custom still in the middle of Munich in 2008. Business is going well and they have expanded to six core Spirits and a collection of bottled ready-to-drink cocktails.

The Duke Munich Dry Gin is the central Spirits that started it all. The base Spirit is derived from wheat and rye. There are fifteen botanicals wet macerated into this Gin. Some of the more traditional ones include juniper, angelica, ginger, lavender flowers, coriander, lemon zest, orange blossoms, and cubeb pepper. But there are some uniquely Bavarian ingredients too, including hop blossoms and malt.

Smartass Corner:
"The Duke" is a reference to Henry the Lion who was Duke of Saxony and Duke of Bavaria in the 12th century — an influential politician and military leader who founded the cities of Munich and Lübeck.

Appearance / Color
Clear

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma leads with piney juniper and coriander with a back note of citrus and florals.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is soft, full, and well-rounded with a nice melange of herbals, and bit of spice from the cubeb and ginger, some granola, and a crisp citrus note on the back of the tongue.

Finish
The finish has a light sweetness with a tea-like drying note.

How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
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.
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.
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.
