All glory for the invention of Gin charges the Dutch pharmacist Franciscus Sylvius (1614-1672). Based on alcohol and juniper he developed mid-17th century the drink called Genever which was originally to be used as a medicine for stomach problems. Genever creates the breakthrough, as British military troops after Spanish-Dutch war took Genever on their island and called him Gin. Gin now serves many classic Longdrinks as a basis or is enjoyed alone with lemon or cucumber.
Koenigsegg is the name of an old German noble family. At chateau Halbturn in Austria the first batch of KŒNIGSEGG Gin was produced in 2002 on initiative of gin lover Count Markus Koenigsegg-Aulendorf. The desire was crafting the extraordinary according to strictest quality standards and creating a special formula that characterizes KŒNIGSEGG Gin and makes it a unique taste experience.
KŒNIGSEGG Gin fulfils the nose with a balanced fragrance that discloses a variety of pleasant and warm aromas. Here meet prominent juniper berries and characteristic, refreshing citrus flavors that are discreetly supported by the other botanicals. The 45% alcohol content looks rather mild. On the palate, the gentleness and the components perceived in the nose continue. There are also gentle and allspice notes herbal and slightly floral nuances. The flavors remain present long and thus continue the impression of a full-bodied, complex Gin. Highly recommended is the enjoyment of the KŒNIGSEGG Gin neat or with a discreet tonic of highest quality.
