History about Abrahamshof and review of their Baiersbronner London dry No. 1 gin.
It all started in 2010, when the family bought a farm in Baiersbronn, Schwarzwald (Germany) Since then, the family has spent time on reconditioning and building a sustainable farm. From the start, there has been a great focus on bringing people, animals and nature into harmony.
Today the farm produces vinegar, honey, cider, liqueur, brandy and not to forget GIN. All made of the finest quality. The primary goal is to only use organic produce from their own garden, fields or forest.
Peter (the father) is a passioned and skillfully distiller. He places great demands on himself and on the raw materials. Right now, he is producing 2 different kinds of gin. The Baiersbronner Distilled Dry and the latest and finest Baiersbronner London Dry No. 1. The gin is produced either on a small “laboratory” still (test/first batch) or on a bigger wood fired copper still in the basement of the farm. All things in the process, are done by hand. In 2018 only 500 bottles of No. 1 are made. They are made in batches of 100 pieces, so this is really a small batch gin. There are 13 different botanicals in No. 1.
No. 1 (50 cl. ABV 45%)🇩🇪 Botanicals:
When you open the bottle, the smell of sweetness and a delicious spicy gin hits your nose. Juniper followed by an orange/lemon and floral smell.
Now what’s happening when you take a sip? A warm and wow taste hits my mouth. It’s a mouth filling gin I must say. The taste of juniper stays a bit in the mouth, but then the taste from the herbs and fruits takes over. The taste is long and stays in the mouth – warm and pleasant.
Tonic for the gin? You can sip it neat but also with a tonic. I think a Fever-tree indian / aromatic tonic will do fine. If you like, sip it neat👌
