The company Kreuzritter has returned the classical gin to its roots – and those are predominantly found in the juniper berry. Alongside it, a gin refined with red wine is cause for delighted surprises.
For a long time the small town Mühlen in the Vechta district was internationally acclaimed for its close ties to the equestrian sport. Germany´s most successful show jumper Paul Schockemöhle operates his stud farm here after all.The gin variation Madame Geneva Gin Blanc and Rouge definitely stir things up though.A traditional gin is created at the historical „Meyerhof“ in Mühlen.It reconjures gin´s essence, the juniper berry. Additionally rarified with ginger and coriander, the Gin Blanc tastes just the way it was prepared 50 years ago – pure and clear. Production uses only high end raw materials for this, with no additional artificial aromas, colorants or preservatives.
In contrast the Gin Rouge is a true experiment. 46 aromatic botanicals and a hearty swig of red wine from the Primitivo grape give the drink its fruity flavor and special coloring. Mixing a classic Gin Tonic with the Gin Rouge will surely have you surprising your guests. Both variations have a weighty indication of their high quality in their almost 2 kilograms heavy, elegantly designed wine bottles. Just how seriously the distillery is taking their „return to the roots of gin“ is seen in the name Madame Geneva. 300 years ago that was the spirit´s name in England, gin´s country of origin.
