GINSTR – Stuttgart Dry Gin
GINSTR – World's Best Gin For Gin Tonic!
GINSTR – Stuttgart Dry Gin is a declaration of love to Stuttgart. Everything is about Stuttgart: only 711 bottles per bottling, the Stuttgart airport code a part of the brand name and even the barrels have real Stuttgart names instead of numbers. So the first GINSTR batch was simply called Killesberg!
The ingredients only come from Stuttgart and the region as well. Citrus fruits, juniper berries, rosemary - from our own cultivation, from local market gardens or from greenhouses in the region. All botanicals that cannot be grown in Stuttgart come from regional dealers, for the most part from the Stuttgart market hall. Even the previously thoroughly filtered water from Lake Constance used for GINSTR is refined with original mineral water from Cannstatt.
Fresh citrus flavors, the finest juniper, a hint of rosemary, cardamom and coriander for the necessary spice. In addition licorice, kaffir lime leaves, orange blossom, hibiscus blossom and pomegranate seeds for the perfect hearty note. A total of 46 handpicked botanicals find their way into GINSTR - Stuttgart Dry Gin.
GINSTR is 100% handmade - in its own distillery on the parental winery of Markus Escher, one of the two makers of GINSTR. The boiler was named after Markus' grandfather "Otto", who bequeathed the distillery to the two young master distillers.
From the selection of ingredients to maceration and distillation to hand filling, manual numbering and attaching the cork, everything is pure manual work. GINSTR - Stuttgart Dry Gin is 100 percent self-made and self-bottled. So the makers always have full control over the highest quality. A quality you can taste!
Never before a German gin managed to win the IWSC's "Gin & Tonic Trophy" (International Wine & Spirit Company) in London. In November 2018, GINSTR was voted "World's Best Gin for Gin & Tonic". The highest and most recognized award in the world in this industry went to Germany for the first time!
