Six Ravens London Dry Gin is ALANDIA´s first Gin. It took us over a year to develop this premium London Dry Gin… Now we proudly present Six Ravens London Dry Gin! Before we get too much into detail, we will shortly describe the history of “Gin”.
History of Gin:
Gin is a distilled spirit which derives its predominant flavour from juniper berries. The Dutch doctor François de la Boe is credited with the invention of this famous spirit. He distilled juniper berries as an herbal medicine and called it genever, the dutch word for juniper berries. English soliders, who were fighting with the Dutch against the Spanish in the Eighty Years’ War, brought the drink to Britain and called it “Gin”. The spirit became highly popular and was also heavily consumed in tropical British colonies. Gin was used to mask the bitter flavour of quinine, which was the only effective anti-malarial compound during this time. Quinine was dissolved in carbonated water to form tonic water; the resulting mix became the origin of today’s famous Gin & Tonic combination!
To celebrate the launch of Six Ravens London Dry Gin, ALANDIA´s first Gin, we have created this very special “Welcome Offer”. You will get one exclusive Gin & Tonic glass with every bottle for free. The glass itself is made out of high quality lead-crystal and its design is eyecatching. The perfect glass to enjoy your Gin & Tonic.
You might ask yourself why we have called this Gin Six Ravens? Well there´s an interesting story behind it. Read more about the history and recipe of Six Ravens London Dry Gin in the following lines.
ALANDIA´s first Gin: Six Ravens London Dry Gin
Gin and ALANDIA? It´s not green and it is not Absinthe? That´s right, therefore let us explain, why we have come up with the idea of making a Gin.
Absinthe, as you might have experienced as well, is unfortunately not available in every bar. Therefore you have to have some substitutes in mind when you are out for a drink. In our case, the substitute was (and still is..) Gin & Tonic, a historical drink with sytle and a pleasant slightly bitter, herbal taste. Gin is a distilled spirits made out of various herbs and spices. Therefore producing a Gin is somehow related to Absinthe production. The idea was born, let´s make the first ALANDIA Gin! It took us over a year and many prototypes to finalize the recipe but now the product is bottled and available for sale: Six Ravens London Dry Gin!
In accordance with the London Dry Gin tradition, Six Ravens Gin is exclusively obtained from distilling selected botanicals, such as juniper berries and ginger. No added sweetening, nor colorants, nor any other ingredients (other than water) are added to the distillate. Six Ravens Gin has an increased alcohol percentage of 46% to preserve its full bodied flavor profile, even when mixed with your favorite tonic water. It is the perfect Gin for a premium Gin Tonic (and that was what we were aiming for ;-)).
We really would be happy when you give our Premium Gin Six Ravens London Dry Gin a try. So happy, that we add to every bottle one very exclusive lead-crystal Gin & Tonic glass for free!
