Reisetbauer Blue Gin
Reisetbauer // Austria
This Austrian gin is produced by illustrious Master Distiller, Hans Reisetbauer. He is perhaps better known for his eau de vie fruit brandies, but he also produces whisky and this gin along with a sloe gin. His dry gin is distilled in pot stills after 2-3 days of infusing 27 botanicals (including juniper, lemon rind, angelical root, cilantro seeds, turmeric, and licorice) into a wheat neutral spirit which he also distills. After the infusion, the spirit is distilled a third time and brought down to bottling proof using soft spring water sourced from an alpine pasture in upper Austria. It is bottled at 43% ABV.
Modern GinAlso has been referred to as "Contemporary", "New Western", "New Wave", and "New American". This style is not legally defined. In general, this category of gin, while it does contain juniper, places less of an emphasis on this botanical. Other botanicals not classically used in London Dry gins are often utilized and often highlight botanicals grown in the region the gin is produced. Most produced as either London Dry or Distilled Gins.
