KNUT HANSEN DRY GIN is a modern, Hanseatic gin – created, introduced & marketed by two guys from Hamburg: Kaspar & Martin. The idea of KNUT HANSEN came up in one of those typical nights out in St. Pauli, when we decided to develop our own gin – and so the adventure began. The vision was very clear: A regional product, a nordic-Hanseatic gin with a perceptible taste of juniper and an extraordinary design. BOTANICALS: For one year, we developed the recipe for KNUT HANSEN DRY GIN in collaboration with our distillery in Dollerup close to the Danish border. To us, producing a regional product means to use regional ingredients. Besides the obligatory juniper we process apples from the region „Altes Land“ in the south of Hamburg while basil and cucumber grow in the family garden and the roses are picked at a Baltic dyke. PRODUCTION: Our gin is manufactured in small batches of 750 bottles - each with a lot of love for the little details. It is distilled four times with a very slow energy addition, in order to preserve the unique taste and the natural aroma of the carefully selected botanicals. Afterwards KNUT HANSEN DRY GIN is manually bottled. KNUT HANSEN: The KNUT HANSEN DRY GIN stoneware bottles show the face of sailor and adventurer KNUT HANSEN, who did not just name the gin, but also personifies the values of KNUT HANSEN DRY GIN such as individuality, love of freedom and adventures.
