THE DUKE – MUNICH DRY GIN
How the story of THE DUKE began…
The year is 2008 AD. All of culinary Germany is occupied by large international gin corporations… All of Germany? No, one backyard in Munich, inhabited by uncompromising distillers, will not stop putting up resistance against the invader… [loosely based on Asterix]—This is more or less how we can describe the beginnings of THE DUKE Distillery.
In fact, only a few years ago gin was not on the map in this country. This may seem surprising given today’s new Gin Craze, where the time-honored spirit gin has finally reclaimed its once occupied territory.
On the way there, quite a few THE DUKE gin bottles have changed hands. This development thankfully accompanied the rediscovery of the classic cocktail bar. Something that thankfully has experienced an unprecedented renaissance over the past decade.
Next to the Gin & Tonic, classics from the 50s, such as the Martini, Negroni, and Gimlet, have also celebrated their reawakening. We, THE DUKE Gin are happy to have been part of initiating this development as pioneers of German gin. We would also like to take this time to thank all our loyal customers who have made this possible for us. And on that note – Gin Gin!
What is a
“Munich Dry Gin”?
For our “THE DUKE – Munich Dry Gin” we use only the best hand-picked botanicals. We’ve also decided to accept nothing less than the full power of the aromas when it comes to our botanicals. As a result of that, we only use herbs & spices from strictly regulated organic cultivation for our “Munich Dry Gin”. These are produced by a small selection of organically certified farmers.
The term “Munich Dry Gin“, unlike the well-known “London Dry Gin”, for example, is intended to clearly emphasise the geographical roots of the production. In the heart of the city the distillery was founded with a lot of passion and improvisation. And now in the village of Aschheim, a suburb of Munich, an idyllic former potato distillery is where THE DUKE has found his permanent home. This commitment to the place of manufacture is acknowledged in the name “Munich Dry”. The production site is made to be tangible and easy to find for everyone. Therefore, the distillery opens its doors to visitors from near and far.
According to the EU spirits regulation, a “dry gin” may contain 0.1 g of sugar per litre of gin. We are of the opinion that a good distillate can do without it. The aromatic sweetness of sun-drenched juniper berries from the Italian Apennines, for example, does not need to be changed to round it off nicely. Therefor not a single gram of sugar can be found in our “Munich Dry Gin”!
