Klippenziege: New era in the world of gin

In December 2015, four friends captured the ‘spirit’ of an idea: they were thinking about gin. Nearly a year later a small batch was bottled by hand. The individuality of a gin lies in the combination of the botanicals, in this case it is the exotic selection: mate tea, goji berries, physalis and a hint of rose. The Klippenziege is a New Western Dry Gin, in which juniper plays the main role amongst the other botanicals.

It is produced in the Habbel Distillery, which guarantees excellent quality thanks to its experience – it was established in 1878 and is now in the family’s fourth generation. The former Korn distillery in Sprockhövel with adjoining farmland is now the largest fruit distillery in the Ruhr region, as a traditional manufacturer it stands out with its attention to detail. The entire manufacturing process at Klippenziege can also be observed on-site.

The bottle and the label are also special. Designer Levent Aydin drew it carefully by hand, and then digitalised it before perfecting it. First it is printed, then coated, then stamped and embossed. The elegant result stands for friendship, solidarity and love. Working together in a friendly and familiar atmosphere connects people with a passion for life who share one important belief: that the product should encourage people to slow down, allowing for mindful enjoyment.

At the World Spirits Award, there was silver for Mate Dry Gin.

Edward Snell – Whisky from South Africa

Edward Snell founded a trading company in Durban in 1848, from which the oldest spirit company in South Africa developed over 160 years. Following an eventful history, the company is now once again in the hands of the family. Besides their own brands they also sell numerous local and international drink brands, mostly in various markets in Africa and the Middle East.

The wide range of products includes whisky, brandy, vodka, rum, gin, tequila and cognac. One outstanding label is Firstwatch Whisky with its new look, a striking, square bottle design. Consumer demand for a whisky with an American taste profile has been perfected over time and is presented today as a balanced blend of the finest imported rye and grain. Whether pure, on the rocks or mixed – its diversity makes it popular with many different target groups and successful in one of the largest spirit segments in South Africa.

At the World Spirits Award, there was gold for Firstwatch Whisky.

Eagles Future – Exceptional products from the Alps

The Alperitif is the first alpine herb bitter liqueur with a gin base. It is both an aperitif and a digestif, as it contains all the right ingredients, extracted over a natural and gentle process. The soft spring water from the Tuxer Alps to the south of Innsbruck is the ideal medium for the extraction of valuable contents from the plants. The fruit content comes from various berries, and the addition of gin concentrates the whole into a complex, soothing drink – whether enjoyed neat, with ice or as a long drink with soda water.

Alpine Gin is a limited production and mainly intended as a valuable aromatiser for the Alperitif. A complex extract of alpine roots, herbs and various berries provides the gin with a wide breadth of aromas, which mature with triple distillation and a three-month resting period in stoneware containers.

Alperitif Glow Gin is a fruit liqueur with alpine root extracts, a creation of the ‘Eagles Micro Distillery’ based on gin, but without quinine. As quinine has a cooling effect on the body it is not suitable for a drink that is supposed to warm it up. Serve 4 to 6 cl of Glow Gin with hot water in a tea glass – and voilà, a fruity-tart alternative to mulled wine is ready to be enjoyed.

At the World Spirits Award, there was gold for Alperitif dry and Glow Gin.

Neuzeller Klosterbrennerei: A renaissance of old distilling traditions

Distillation has a long history in Neuzelle, Brandenburg. The Cistercian abbey once also included a tavern where brandy was produced. This tradition of distilling was re-evoked in 1997 in the form of the newly founded abbey distillery, reviving 400 years of history. Supported by 150 shareholders, a company was founded to revitalise the existing distilling tradition.

Various liqueurs are produced here by hand alongside classical brandies and spirits made from stone fruits and berries, and are particularly important here. The two herb liqueurs are especially important pillars of the product range. In recent years, Nico Petri, who has been the distiller in the company since 2004, has dedicat-ed himself intensively to the perfection of the first Neuzelle Gin, from the first attempts in 2013 to the sales launch in summer 2018. “You just have to imagine” became his personal motto during the development peri-od – and this is also how the gin got its name: I’m a Gin! In the selection of the botanicals, it was paramount that they support the character of the juniper: lemon and bitter orange peels, liquorice, coriander, cinnamon bark, angelica root, calendula blossoms and lavender. In December 2018, ‘Sloe Meets Gin’ was introduced, a sloe liqueur with a gin base, to complement the current gin selection.

At the World Spirits Award, there was gold for IMA.GIN and IMA.GIN Sloe Meets Gin.
