HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
Whether you have someone to spend it with or not, you can always count on us to have something to help out the occasion: Gin.
The story of Broken Heart gin is about remembering a friend. Two German friends, Joerg and Bernd, were living in Queenstown on the South Island of New Zealand. Both of them were philosophers and Master Distillers, and set out to make a superb gin together. Sadly, Bernd unexpectedly fell ill and tragically passed away. To commemorate his friend and to mark a new beginning, Joerg released Broken Heart gin. Broken Heart is London Dry gin distilled in a small pot still with wheat and molasses base spirit.

Eleven botanicals are added, including juniper, coriander seed, lemon peel, lavender, cardamom, cassia, cinnamon and angelica. The New Zealand alpine water gives this gin a captivating purity, and it is well balanced at 40% ABV. The aim was to make a perfumed and crisp gin to drink at dusk, cherishing those ‘moments in between’. We're huge gin fans and this one really does take the gold for best in show. A truly wonderful example of what gin can be.
