All about The Duke

The Duke Munich Dry Gin was launched in 2009 by two friends who, over a few Gin and Tonics one evening, decided that there was something missing in the Gin market, so they quit their jobs and started to produce their own.

Made in Germany, The Duke Gin took more than a year in testing and development to reach the final recipe, which today includes juniper, lemon peel, coriander, angelica root, lavender, ginger, orange blossom, and cubeb pepper.

The addition of hop blossoms and malt gives the Gin a unique and distinctive Bavarian character. All 13 botanicals are organic.

All about The Duke distillery

One evening in the autumn of 2007, two young men started sampling several cocktails. However to their dismay the drinks were imbibing lacked a certain ingredient. Unsatisfied, with the existing products on the market they decided to quit their jobs and went to work establishing their own unique Gin.

In a serene backyard in the heart of Munich, Duke Gin was born. After a year of testing, and experimenting with the recipe in a basement, the first bottled Dukes was released in 2008.

Organic and locally sourced,
the ingredients and botanicals were selected meticulously from producers and local farmers. Their locally sourced ingredients and bespoke copper still crafts a truly distinct Gin.
