PORT & CITY
Inspired by what characterizes the port of Hamburg. Spices and specialties, tradition and modernity, departure and arrival. With the freshness of kaffir lime leaves and oranges and mildly spicy notes of nutmeg, cubeb pepper and 8 other botanicals, this unique London Dry Gin brings the spirit of HafenCity to life.
CRAFT & TIME
20457 Hafencity Gin is produced in a small manufactory in northern Germany using a copper 200 liter still made by Arnold Holstein. First, the botanicals are macerated for several days to extract the essential oils. To allow the natural flavors to develop and be preserved, we take our time.
The gin is distilled slowly, gently and in small quantities four times. Afterwards, the bottles are filled, corked, labeled and numbered by hand. Thus, each bottle is unique. The 20457 Hafencity Gin meets the strict criteria of a true London Dry Gin. And you can taste that.
MILD & DELICIOUS
The 20457 Hafencity Gin is so mild that you can also enjoy it pure. It tastes balanced and complex. Its multifaceted aroma unfolds gradually.
Initially, the juniper berries make you think of a pine forest. Then, the exotic freshness of the kaffir lime leaves and orange surprises. The nutmeg adds a spicy note before the pleasant peppery note of the cubeb pepper finishes. Its pine and eucalyptus notes, in turn, pair beautifully with the juniper.
