The Duke Munich Dry Gin is the delicious proof that there are first class gins from big German cities that can compete and hold their own against the lauded and rewarded big names from England. This dry gin has the persuasive powers of the pied piper, turning sceptics into fanatics with its irresistible bottle design and its wonderful taste. The producer of The Duke Munich Dry Gin ? the Duke ? emphasises quality over quantity. In fact there are two dukes and they aren?t really dukes at all. Sorry. They are Maximilian Schauerte and Daniel Schoenecker ? and the limited size of their dry gin operation in Munich is partly practical; their HQ in the centre of the city is only big enough for a pretty small distillery. But who?s complaining? We?re glad the boys went ahead with their dream and we?re pleased to have The Duke Munich Dry Gin, available to purchase now in the online shop at Urban Drinks.

The Duke Munich Dry Gin is a truly modern brand from Munich

The Duke Munich Dry Gin is right on time and en vogue. Its production takes place using exclusively organic ingredients; The Duke is therefore clothed in the highly coveted organic label that only a few premium spirits, and even fewer dry gins, can claim the right to don. Shock and disaster; retailers also need certification to be able to legally sell organic produce. Stepping up stepping in ? Urban Drinks has got one; that?s why The Duke lives with us, and that?s why you needn?t move a muscle from your sofa, and you can still expect a taste of Munich to arrive at your door in no time. We?ve got your back.

Schauerte und Schoenecker can be loudly proud of their project: The Duke Munich Dry Gin is a treat. In just seven hours, a basket of botanicals can be turned into a premium dry gin for public delectation by The Duke distillery in Munich. The Duke and his dry gin have been successful enough that the two partners can live from their business in the not exactly cheap city of Munich while employing staff and keeping their plant up and running.

The Duke Munich Dry Gin ? stage one: production, stage two: party

The Duke Munich Dry Gin, which is available to purchase in the online shop here at Urban Drinks, is produced in traditional style for a (London) dry gin. 13 botanicals in total, including lavender, angelica root, ginger, and coriander make The Duke what it is. Distillation takes place in a traditional copper still. Twice distilled and twice filtered, the resulting dry gin is as clean and clear as they come.

The Duke & Tonic is best garnished with a twist of orange peel according to the producers. We can?t find any fault with that formula. If you?re looking for a cocktail, try the Gin Gin Mule:

  • 45ml The Duke Munich Dry Gin
  • 6-8 mint leaves
  • 25ml lime juice
  • 30ml sugar syrup
  • 30ml ginger beer
  • Ice cubes

Put the mint leaves, the sugar syrup and the lime juice in a shaker and mix them up a bit. Add the gin and the ice cubes and shake it up. Strain over a highball glass and top up with ginger beer. Enjoy.
