From the Vulkaneifel, a high-lying and volcanically active region in the Eifel mountains, and more specifically the Rhineland-Palatinate German federal state, comes an exceptional product in the form of Windspiel Gin. In contrast to most gins, Windspiel?s production is based on potatoes, a fact which lends the gin a unique and clear aroma. And now Windspiel is live and direct ? available to purchase in the online shop at Urban Drinks.

What?s a Windspiel? The production of Windspiel Gin

Windspiel is, as mentioned, produced on the basis of a neutral alcohol made of potatoes. Regionally grown potatoes from the Vulkaneifel are mashed and fermented with yeast. The base spirit that results from this process becomes Windspiel Gin after enrichment with botanicals like lavender, juniper, coriander, lemon and cinnamon, which combine to infuse the gin with an exciting and multifarious taste. Gin fans will be won over upon first smelling Windspiel by its fruity bouquet. Powerful and fresh, while remaining smooth and unobtrusive, Windspiel has done a shift even before a drop hits your tongue. Impatience for a taste is the only reaction.

Windspiel Gin on your shelves and Windspiel Gin in your glass: drinking Windspiel

The aroma of Windspiel Gin can really score points. For anyone looking for a gin with an arresting and unique scent, Windspiel really isn?t one to miss out on. Floral and fruity tones are heady and enticing, held together in perfect harmony by the cinammon that also takes its place in this gin. Thanks to its silkily soft texture, Windspiel also makes for an extraordinarily enjoyable drinking experience; one that will convince both newcomers and old-timers in the world of gin.

Windspiel Gin, which is available to purchase in the online shop here at Urban Drinks, makes as good an impression on the palate as it does in that sleek bottle on the shelf. Its texture is smooth and even creamy. The flavours of Windspiel are dominated by woody and herbal tones, a weighty juniper note, and a refreshing citrus to round off the experience. That profile makes Windspiel a brilliantly executed classic London Dry Gin. In addition, Windspiel is also a notably powerful potion thanks to its 47% volume. Naughty.

You can?t go wrong with a Windspiel & tonic. A Fever Tree is our recommendation to bring the best out of this beast from the Vulkaneifel. Garnish with a slice of lime. If that sounds a bit too piercing, how about a nice creamy cocktail? Here?s a recipe for the Alexandra:

  • 30ml Windspiel Gin
  • 30ml Crème de Cacao
  • 30ml single cream

Pour everything over a handful of ice cubes in a cocktail shaker and rough the mixture up. Strain over a cocktail glass and enjoy.
