Muscatel Distilled Gin is a handcrafted modern interpretation of this delicious spirit, retaining the typical aroma of juniper. As Gin has been around since at least the Middle Ages, when it was known as Genever, what would feel most appropriate? Right! We've added one of the world's oldest grape varieties to this vintage delight. Using all natural ingredients, of course, we carefully infuse Muscatel wine and orange peel to refine the traditional taste, adding a smack of citrus and the heft of Muscatel, while keeping a delicate, fruity and floral touch. Finally, we only use 6 times distilled alcohol and 2 times filtrated water for reaching the highest premium standards.
Needless to say, none of this would matter if we had not also infused the most important ingredient of all: A lot of love. (There's a lot of alcohol, too.)
Anyway, the aroma of ripe Muscat grapes has long been known to attract bees and flies, as referenced by its Italian origin, “mosca”, meaning fly. With a heritage like that, Muscatel Distilled Gin is bound to drive you crazy – naturally.
We owe a lot to Harald Schatz - actually everything. Without the charismatic Janitor we would never have heard of the wonderful rooms under the "Eltzer Hof", the present home of the night club "50grad". Only on the basis of his recommendation, we were awarded the contract as a tenant. With our vodka we want to say THANK YOU. It is a tribute to a man of action, with a preference for simple solutions, quality and sustainability. Who would be better suited to give our "vodka without hocus-pocus" a name? "Harald Schatz Wodka" is as simple as it is of high quality: five times distilled cereal alcohol, double filtered water. Period. And you bet, people like Harald Schatz are of course loyal to you. Harald is still our house electrician and often savior at need.
It was the Dragon from A Witch, A Dragon & Me that inspired us to make a Muscatel Distiller‘s Cut. Now it‘s here. The Muscatel Dragon‘s Cut. Aged over a year in an orange liqueur cask and packed with a higher wine and juniper portion than normal, the Muscatel Dragon‘s Cut embodies in its flavour the pure momentum of taste. Intense notes of orange and a hint of savoury juniper. Elegant, mild, ornate. Perfectly balanced. The look: a sensual flavour demands a sexy look. That‘s why the Muscatel Dragon‘s Cut smoulders in a grey finished 0,5l bottle with natural cork.
Numbered by hand – distinctive, handsome and unique.
A sloe gin made to measure. Ruby-red, berry, mild & refined with local flower blossom honey. Pure or as cocktail it unfolds its well-balanced taste including a fine almond finish.
