Swiss Blended Gin was the first nginious! creation; it is very fresh and well-balanced, full of character and contains a herbal note. The 18 botanicals can be clearly smelled and tasted. It comes with great complexity and seems very soft and harmonic even when drunk pure, despite its 45 % vol. Whereas most gins lose their aromas when tonic is added, tonic water opens up the nginious! Swiss Blended Gin,
showing its power.

To create nginious! Vermouth Cask Finished Gin, we use our Swiss Blended Gin as the basis for the cask finished variant, which contains 43 % vol. The maturation in the former vermouth cask adds notes of bitter orange and oriental spices, yet the herbal note that is typical for nginious! Swiss Blended Gin is not lost.
Following the unrivalled concept of a hip flask as a basic bottle, each variety of nginious! gets its unique design in the form of a special jacket. The Vermouth Cask Finished Gin gets a new leather design every time a new barrel is being aged and thus also becomes a collector’s item.

For the summer edition of nginious! an entirely new recipe was composed. Apart from juniper and blueberries it consists of peach, jasmine blossoms, fresh sweet limes, white pepper and rhubarb. It is easy to guess that fruity-floral notes dominate. The Summer Gin is a little lighter than our nginious! Swiss Blended Gin, with a clearly more feminine orientation. This gin is distinguished by the well-known freshness.

Like all nginious! Gins, the Smoked & Salted Gin is distilled in separate batches and subsequently blended. Separately from juniper we have distilled bitter oranges, quinces, coriander and ginger.
The real surprise, however, is the use of smoked chestnuts in its own batch. They lend the gin its unique smoky flavour, without dominating. For the final refinement of this blended gin a rare smoked stone salt from the Swiss Alps, the “Sel à l’Ancienne”, is added.

Before the maceration the chestnuts were intensively cold-smoked for 40 hours. They lend the nginious! Smoked & Salted Gin its special smoky flavour.Serving suggestion

The nginious! Distiller’s Cut was developed specifically for the completion of the Liquid Spirit Distillery in Basel, the new home of nginious!. Contrary to the other blended nginious! editions, it is a London Dry Gin, with citric notes. The nginious! Distiller’s Cut was the very first production ever made on the new Fantastic Mr. Fox line in the Liquid Spirit Distillery. As a limited edition, only 3,000 magnum bottles (150cl) were produced.

the classic Negroni cocktail.
To create the Negroni interpretation by nginious!: ngroni!, one of the best vermouths from Piedmont (exclusively aged in Barolo barrels) was used. It is blended
with nginious! Swiss Blended Gin and an excellent Swiss Bitter
(from an ancient Torino recipe).
