A grand total of 13 botanicals are obtained from organic farming and give the gin its flavour. Outside of the usual suspects some of the botanicals of interest are - coriander, lavender blossoms, ginger root, orange blossoms and cubeb. The final, not so secret, ingredients are hop blossoms and malt , no surprised considering Munich’s long standing brewing history. These give the gin its own unique Bavarian twist.
Fox’s Tasting Notes
Like a late evening stroll in the Bavarian forest, the air is heavy with the scent of pine and berries, with a far off waft of the malty beer halls driving you forward.
The Duke Tasting Notes
Nose: Fragrant and complex, hints of pine

Finish: Warm and heavy spice with a hint of bitterness
Average Price: £36.95
This is a nice little gin and a solid entry for Germany into the exciting international gin market. It is a touch on the expensive side compared to some of our home grown produce, but it’s certainly worth a try for those who like a strong, dry gin with a hearty grain taste at its core.
