The petrol coloured bottle with a metal 'tap' is definitely an eye-catcher, but the content of the dynamic and classic gin which is "Made in the Lech Valley" is no less spectacular.
It is created by Mario Huber, the mastermind behind Lechtaler Haussegen. It took him over a year to perfect the recipe which uses 15 different local, and global herbs combined in a closely guarded recipe. After distillation it is rested in glass bottles for several weeks.
It has a delightful spicy juniper smell, which is accented with lemons, flowers and herbs.
The taste has several stages, it starts delicately soft and ever so slightly sweet. As the flavours develop with every sip more aromas are revealed from the botanicals.
Whilst the specific recipe is a guarded secret, we know that the following are to be found: juniper berries, cranberries, coriander, orange peel, lemon peel, lavender, angelica root, rose hip, violet root, calamus, rosemary, cardamom, lemon balm, chamomile and peppermint.
