The first impression of this gin is in its bewildering aroma: it’s fruity. Orange, lemon, and ginger take the stage by storm. But then a chorus of unexpected characters â clove and cardamom â take the spotlight accompanied by the gentle floral notes ofÂ lavender and lemon balm. The spicy aspects of juniper lurk in the wings, of course, but that is to be expected. Itâs gin, after all. But the long-lasting reverberation is clearly that of a citrus bang and lavender undertones, all-too-complex to properly put into words. Suffice to say, it’s 1913 and youâre seeing Stravinskyâs âRite of Springâ for the first time.
Sloe berries grow wild. Theyâre the wild child of the forest and cities alike. Eaten raw, they make your face pucker.
But if you mix sloe berries into our organic gin for a homemade brew, itâs an explosion of irresistible goodness. Drink our sloe gin slow and in small glasses, or mix it with champagne for a so-called âsloegasm.â
If youâre looking for a feisty start to any evening, add soda water and lemon for a Stauffenberg sloe gin fizz. Cheers!
Its color is reminiscent of amberâfrom the Latin electrum and Greek meaning âblazing sun.â Cinnamon and cloves add further warm notes alongside juniper, licorice and coriander.
The lemon and orange background are complimented by a just the vague idea caramel, vanilla and chocolate, which comes from the barrel, of course, rounding out an almost creamy appeal of an otherwise naturally wooden flavor.
Our Aged Gin is extraordinary, in this sense, for the journey it takes you on, the surprise of the new mingled in with the memories of a good bourbon in front of the fireplace at home.
