A bold, earthy Gin from Stuttgart, Germany, that deserves all of accolades and attention it has received.

Over the last few years, Germany has become a hotspot for the creation of new premium Gins. Alexander Franke was a radio host who interviewed Markus Escher, who grew up in a Winery. The struck up a friendship and shared a love of good Gin. They started playing with the idea of making their own and experimented for two years before launching their brand GINSTR in 2016.

GINSTR Stuttgart Dry Gin is 100% made in Stuttgart and bottled in small batches of 711 bottles at a time. Each bottle is individually numbered by hand. And the sheer number of botanical infusions is impressive — there are forty-six of them. That’s far too many to list here, but they include juniper, rosemary, hibiscus blossoms, cardamom, coriander, licorice, Kaffir lime leaves, orange blossoms, pomegranate seeds, and a bunch more. The results are equally impressive.

Markus and Alexander share a photo of them wearing some of the industry awards they’ve received. They were even the first German Gin to win the "GIN 7 TONIC TROPHY" AT THE IWSC. And all we can say that they certainly earned them.

Smartass Corner:
GINSTR is a play on "Ginster" (as a person who likes Gin) and the three-letter call sign for their hometown airport — Stuttgart STR.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
Even the aroma is complex with light herbs, sandalwood, florals, pine, and sea-spray notes.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate builds on the aromas, adding bright citrus zests, and hibiscus stepping up over the juniper and rosemary.

Finish
The finish is long of a Gin with a savory note.

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.
Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
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.
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.
