 A delightful Swiss Gin in a beautiful black bottle that delivers an exotic fruit-forward profile.

Maurice Richard Swiss Premium Spirits was founded in 2015 by three friends in Zurich. Like many such opportunities, they were making their way in the corporate world of technology and consulting by day and enjoying fine cocktails at night. Thus the germination of inspiration came upon them. Currently, they have produced Falco Gin and — as many small shops have done recently — converted a bit of their ethanol production to make Desinfax hand sanitizer. But we imagine there are more Spirits to follow.

The first thing you notice about Falco Gin is the strikingly beautiful bottle — all black glass with a richly-toned falcon peering out at you. It really is very lovely. And inside that artistic decanter you will find a hand-crafted Gin in the modern Swiss style. The Spirit is made in Switzerland’s famous Hallau Zimmerli Distillery just north of Zurich near the German border. The Gin has a fruit-forward profile. The ingredients are kept secret, but we know that it has juniper, cardamom, black pepper, orange zest, and mango… yes, we said mango.

Appearance / Color
Clear

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is where the mango shines equal to the piney notes of juniper over a mixture of spices.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate opens with a silky, oily texture with sweet notes of juniper, orange, mango, and melon flying over background notes of exotic spices.

Finish
The finish is bright and dominated by cardamom and pepper.

About the Flavor Spiral
What does Falco Gin taste like?

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

Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
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.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
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.
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.
