A delicious, hand-crafted Dry Gin with a decidedly Bavarian twist.

Back in 2007 in a local Munich bar, Maximilian von Pückler was sipping on a Gin & Tonic with his friend and co-founder Daniel discussing the relative poor condition of the Gin available at the time. Well, as these things tend to go, that Gin-soaked conversation blossomed into a business plan. In 2008 they started in a backyard and cellar, taking a year to research what they were doing and develop a distilling ethos, opening the doors of The Duke Distillery with a custom still in the middle of Munich in 2008. Business is going well and they have expanded to six core Spirits and a collection of bottled ready-to-drink cocktails.

The Duke Munich Dry Gin is the central Spirits that started it all. The base Spirit is derived from wheat and rye. There are fifteen botanicals wet macerated into this Gin. Some of the more traditional ones include juniper, angelica, ginger, lavender flowers, coriander, lemon zest, orange blossoms, and cubeb pepper. But there are some uniquely Bavarian ingredients too, including hop blossoms and malt.

Smartass Corner:
"The Duke" is a reference to Henry the Lion who was Duke of Saxony and Duke of Bavaria in the 12th century — an influential politician and military leader who founded the cities of Munich and Lübeck.

Appearance / Color
Clear

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma leads with piney juniper and coriander with a back note of citrus and florals.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is soft, full, and well-rounded with a nice melange of herbals, and bit of spice from the cubeb and ginger, some granola, and a crisp citrus note on the back of the tongue.

Finish
The finish has a light sweetness with a tea-like drying note.
