Xellent Gin is, in a word, excellent.

Hans Affentranger started distilling in the small Swiss town of Willisau in 1918. A few years later he founded Distillerie Willisau SA (DIWISA). Over the years the company has grown to a full-time staff of over one hundred producing a wide range of Europe’s more popular spirits brands, including Jägermeister, Trojka, Xellent, and dozens of additional brands that form the core of back-bars all of the EU. The Xellent line includes a Swiss Vodka and Gin.

Usually, the best Rye grain is sent to bakeries and the lower-quality seeds are sent to distilleries. But for their award-winning Xellent Gin, they take the grain as seriously as any Highland single malt master — selecting the best Picasso and Matador Rye seeds for their copper alembic stills. Distillation is slow and gentle to ensure only the lightest, sweetest spirit makes it into the bottles. And the 25 botanical infusions are unique too — including lemon balm, edelweiss mountain flowers, woodruff, and lavender. The result is an exceptionally fragrant and refreshing Gin that emphasizes florals and grasses.

About the Flavor Spiral
What does Xellent Edelweiss Gin taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Xellent Edelweiss 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.
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.
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!
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.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
