At the Altona Spirit Manufacture, Gin Sul is produced by hand, with great care and attention to detail, by Hamburg’s famous gin distillery. Gin Sul’s roots, however, lie almost 3.000km to the south: on the wild Costa Vicentina in south-west Portugal.
Simple, fresh and elegant. Our exclusive dry gin is characterised by the finest botanicals, careful distillation in very small batches and subtle hints of Mediterranean citrus.
Only 100 litres - that’s all our distillery’s copper still - crafted by Arnold Holstein in Markdorf on Lake Constance - can hold. Compared to the industry average, that’s what you might call a “homeopathic” production volume. En route to the “spirit pipe“, all the alcohol vapour must battle its way through what is known as an anisateur: a spirit tray, which in our bespoke distillation process, is filled with fresh lemon peel, rosemary and rose petals. The cold, clear and soft water from the Lüneburg Heath region, south of Hamburg, is blended with GIN SUL distillate in the Altona Spirit Manufacture to bring it to 43% strength.
Juniper berries, coriander, fresh lemons from Portugal, rosemary, peppers, lavender, cinnamon and gum rockrose (Cistus Ladanifer) are just some of the ingredients which capture the ‘saudade’, or soulful longing, in Gin Sul.
