Finest Spirits in 60 minutes
On my way to www.finest-spirits.com/ 2014 in Munich I met a cheerleader in the tube with ‘Munich Cowboys – Spirit Squad’ written on her bag. Well, kind of a nice motto for my visit of this spirit fair, like I had only one hour to rush through the different booth.
The 60 minutes turned into a fantastic adventure as I got in contact with some fantastic local distillers and people who don’t give any more a fuck about genre limitations and produce gin, vodka and rum on a local level.
So have a look at some nice products I had the pleasure to try and find the links at the end of this post – and just to say: this blog post just covers a wild crossover of spirits and doesn’t reflect the entire variety of liquids available at the fair!
http://www.granit-gin.de/ by http://www.penniger.de with 28 bavarian and classic botanicals on a very straight forward level
http://www.brennerei-feller.de from Bavaria with a very smooth idea of spirits, whisky, vodka and a gin with a strong citrus note
http://www.brennerei-liebel.de – I only had the pleasure to taste the Blutorangen-Geist which is in combination with Tonic a marvelous summer drink
Kaiser Hill 16 Gin by http://www.brennerei-schraml.de which is kind of grandfather of the gin boom with its 18 years of production
Schwarzkirsche Reserve by http://www.destilleriekohler.de, a classic product with a 21 day finish in an oak barrel. What a nice surprise!
And last but not least two nice rum specialities
Rum Nation 18 Panama years http://www.dts-w.de/index.php/rn-panama-18-jahre
Blue Mauritius Silber http://rum-depot.de/rum/rum-weiss/389/blue-mauritius-silver – a very impulsive rum that is also available with a cask finish
