A Swiss Gin
of the highest quality

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.

Botanicals

Juniper, barberry, laurel fruit, citrus and sweet orange peel, fresh grapefruit, cardamom, hay flower, clover blossoms, bee balm, verbena, hyssop, camomile, black currant leaves, orris root, carline thistle root, galangal, liquorice

Maceration & Rest Period

Preparation: Fruits are tossed gently by hand, and followed by a brief, intensive maceration. Rest period is at least 6–8 weeks after distillation.

Serving suggestion

In a tumbler with dry tonic water, ice
and strips of grapefruit zests

Vermouth Cask

The first
of its kind

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.

Botanicals

Juniper, barberry, laurel fruit, citrus and sweet orange peel, fresh grapefruit, cardamom, hay flower, clover blossoms,bee balm, verbena, hyssop, camomile, black currant leaves, orris root, carline thistle root, galangal, liquorice

Maturation

About 5 months in Vermouth di Torino casks

Summer spirit
in and on the bottle

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.

Botanicals

Juniper, blueberries, peach, fresh sweet limes, jasmine blossoms, white pepper, rhubarb roots and rhubarb

Maceration & Rest Period

Preparation: Fruits are tossed gently by hand, and followed by a brief, intensive maceration. Rest period is at least 6 weeks after distillation

Serving suggestion

In a white wine glass with Mediterranean tonic, ice,
slice of peach and basil

Smoked & Salted Gin

An explosion of flavours
and “bartender’s choice”

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.

Botanicals

Juniper, bitter oranges, quinces, coriander, ginger, chestnuts, smoke and salt

Smoking

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

In a tumbler with ice and either a dry tonic or a ginger beer, decorate with a sliced kumquat and a sprig of thyme.

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.

orris root, licorice
