Signature Botanicals

Alongside rock crystals they are the real treasures of the Alps: the multitude of flowers, roots and herbs that have been used by human beings for hundreds of years. Apart from juniper three of them form the basis of the superior taste of our rum.
Arnika
Lady’s mantle
Silver thistle
Voted Flower of the Year in 1986, arnica is the king of the Alps. It is associated with the bracing aromas of everlasting flowers, Alpine meadows and a hint of camomile.
There are 300 autochthonous varieties in Europe alone. Lady’s mantle is flowery, sweet and fruity, reminiscent of fresh Alpine hay and is rounded off with a subtle aroma of menthol.
The ‘Flower of the Year’ 1997 feels especially at home in the Alps. Its sweet and spicy aromas are accompanied by the subtle scent of warm earth.

THE LARGE ALETSCH GLACIER

Normal water is not good enough for our premium spirits. We use Swiss glacial water, which has its source at an altitude of over 3,400 meters on the Jungfraujoch!

The Aletsch glacier is the biggest and longest glacier in the Alps. Between the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, it has its own ice tunnels on the Jungfraujoch. These are the source of the glacial water, which is used to reduce the distillate to bottling strength. The natural glacial water gives our spirits a particularly soft and pleasant flavour.

This is what premium gin tastes like

A gin that draws its inspiration from the highest Alpine peaks and from the plants in the lower regions. The mountain herbs add a refined note, which is not too dominant. This means that our dry gin is outstanding when taken neat, but is just as good when mixed in a gin tonic.
In the nose
Fresh scent of sunny mountain meadows with ripe citrus notes and summerly Alpine herbs.
On the palate
Spicy-sweet, warm and peppery taste with faint notes of juniper and oranges.
The aftertaste
An elegant, powerful and enduring aftertaste redolent of spicy herbs and Alpine hay.
