The Urban Garden Gin is a very tasty gin, which is characterized by its floral and herbal aromas. The star of the Urban Garden Gin is fresh sea wormwood, which grows on the roof garden of the Berlin Distillery. End of September, when it is in bloom, it is harvested and immediately distilled in a 40 l still, which is situated just two levels below the garden. The very aromatic sea wormwood destillate is then combined with a distillate of organic juniper from Northern Bosnia, a distillate of fresh lemon from an organic farm in Mallorca and a little bit of lavender distillate, resulting in the Urban Garden Gin. All gins of the Berlin Distillery are handmade with love. The ingredients used for the gins are sustainable and where possible regional. The seven Berlin Distillery gins have in common that they are very aromatic, soft and round. They can be enjoyed neat, but they also blend well with a dry tonic water. Bartenders also like to use them for a variety of gin cocktails.
Jan Kreutz, Founder and Managing Director of Berlin Distillery
Why did you choose "same but different" and not the hall with classic spirits?
The Berlin Distillery is a young and innovative gin manufactory. For our gins we are only using destillates which we have distilled ourselves and we want to set new gin trends. Therefore we fit perfectly into the "same but different" with other craft distillers.
Why should the visitor visit you on the same but different?
We produce seven different gins, all handmade with love. For all gins we are only using destillates which we distilled ourselves. we are not using aromas, sugar or colouring. All Berlin Distillery Gins are very aromatic, soft and round. In our portfolio many gin lovers find a new favorite gin, whether the fruity and mild Sundown Gin, the classical Berlin Night Gin with powerful juniper and refreshing lemon, the Urban Garden Gin full of floral and herbal aromas or the reserve gin, made of a juniper, chili, raspberry destillate, which has aged in a PX sherry cask.
In which product do you see a future trend?
Our Urban Garden Gin is very sustainable. The key botanical is sea wormwood, a plant which is well adapted to climate change and which grows on our own roof garden. To harvest this botanical we only have to take to flights of stairs and therefore prevent long transportation routes. Our customers love the urban garden gin, because of its floral and herbal taste.
