“I'm on a Gin & Tonic diet. So far I've lost 2 days!”
→ Reisetbauer Blue Gin
This is Hans Reisetbauer's pot-still, small batch Gin, made with one of the softest waters around and produced from ‘Mulan’ wheat which is locally sourced. The first batch was made in 2006 where 50 different botanicals were used, but nowadays, with constant improvements, "just" 27 botanicals are used (the main one still being Juniper from Macedonia)
It is believed that Jenever (or Gin) has been invented by a Dutch chemist and alchemist Dr. Franciscus Sylvius (1614-1672). As was with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine. Although several different styles have evolved since the beginning, the main component still remains Juniper berry, obviously.
