A wonderfully exotic Dry Gin that shimmers in a brilliant Sapphire Blue, but transforms in your G&T.

Max Muggenthaler is a dentist in Munich. Tim Steglich is a certified business economist. One day back in 2015 they conceptualized The Illusionist Gin — a distinctly natural, organic Gin with a fruity and floral flavor profile and brilliant color. That color would change when mixed — a kind of Magic of Mixology. They launched their Gin locally in 2016 to select, high-end bars where it quickly became popular. Only now is this delightful gem finding its way to the broader market.

The Illusionist Dry Gin is a delicious premium Gin that is also a bit of a parlor trick. The infusions include sixteen botanicals, including an exotic Far East flower called Butterfly Pea Blossom. These lovely petals impart a radiant sapphire blue color tone to the Gin. It really is quite striking. But this is also where the "illusion" comes in. You see, when this naturally blue Gin comes into contact with tonic water, a gentle reaction transforms the color into a soft pink hue. What you have is a Gin that is lovely on the eye and on the palate.

Smartass Corner:
Phenols and polyphenols give many fruits and flowers their color. Phenol blue is present in many blue flowers and it reacts with the pH level in liquids, changing to shades of pink and red.

What does The Illusionist Dry Gin taste like?

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

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.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Bright Sapphire

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is bright with florals and citrus lying over pine and eastern spices.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
In many ways the profile leans toward a classic Dry Gin, but with a broad fruit note, clearly define florals, and a hit of mixed citrus zest over the juniper notes.

The finish is clean with a lingering fruit tone.
