Knut Hansen gin

Knut Hansen Dry Gin is a modern “Hanseatic” gin, created, introduced and marketed by two friends from Hamburg. The pair worked with a distillery in Dollerup, close to the Danish border, to create the gin, using botanicals of apples, basil, rose petals and cucumber, all grown in Germany, alongside the traditional juniper.

The gin is produced in small batches of 750 bottles, distilled four times, and housed in a stoneware bottle featuring the face of the eponymous legendary sailor, symbolising the brand’s values: individuality, love of freedom and adventures. The pair are looking for distribution in the UK.

RPP: £35.
