A crisp and lightly sweet Gin from Hamburg, Germany that celebrates a legendary adventurer.

The company 4Anchors and Hamburg Distilling Company are the brainchildren of Kaspar Hagedom and Martin Spieker. A few years ago on a night out in their home city — over drinks, naturally — they were inspired to hatch a plan. Now, the two men spend their days running their small-batch, one-hundred and twenty liter copper still and bottling their Spirits… all by hand.

Knut Hansen Dry Gin is named after a local legendary sailor. And artist’s imagined portrait of the man is printed on the ceramic decanters holding the Spirit — piercing blue eyes and all. But what they put in those ceramic decanters is what matters most.

Knut Hansel Dry Gin is distilled four times with fourteen fresh botanicals hand-trimmed by Kaspar and Martin themselves. The list includes juniper (of course) along with cucumber, lemon zest, orange zest, and other classic Gin-y ingredients. But there are a few surprises in the mix, like basil and apples. All-in-all a worthy addition to the new Pantheon of German Gins.

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

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.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
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.
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.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
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.
