GIN TIME

The best gin for a G&T comes from Stuttgart.

The Peak (Malaysia) - - The Brief -

Now, here’s some­thing new to try when you’re han­ker­ing for a gin and tonic: the sur­prise win­ner of the Gin & Tonic Tro­phy at the re­cent In­ter­na­tional Wine and Spirit Com­pe­ti­tion, GINSTR – Stuttgart Dry stood out from a field of more than 600 dif­fer­ent gin dis­tillers from 90 coun­tries, the first time this highly re­garded prize went to Ger­many.

Hav­ing been on the mar­ket for only 18 months, the brand started as a hobby by dis­tillers Alexan­der Franke and Markus Escher. Made in small batches in their own dis­tillery, the duo uses ju­niper berries they have grown them­selves along with in­gre­di­ents from the Stuttgart re­gion. The brand’s suc­cess should not have been such a sur­prise as GINSTR re­ceived the gold medal at the World Spir­its Award ear­lier this year.
