Old meets new in Adler Berlin Dry Gin: a gin with style
A lot happened in 1874. Winston Churchill, the future Prime Minister of the UK, was born; there was a hoax that animals had escaped from the Central Park Zoo in New York; and the Preussische Spirituosen Manufaktur (Prussian Spirits Company) was opened in Berlin. Originally intended as a school for distillery, the Company was re-envisioned in 2008 by Ulf Stahl, professor of microbiology, and Gerald Schroff, a veteran bartender. Together, they started producing Adler Berlin Dry Gin and have never looked back.
Adler Berlin Dry Gin is a fusion of the old-fashioned, Prussian landed aristocracy and the hip, fresh excitement in Berlin. 'Adler' is actually the German word for 'eagle', the insignia of the Prussian kingdom. The eagle-shaped logo is printed on every bottle in reference to the Prussian kingdom and the brand's roots. The glass bottle is also quite traditional yet simplistic; stylish. This is a gin which tips its hat to the past but looks ahead to the future.
Distilled wheat and juniper berries are used as the gin's base, with added notes of coriander, lavender, ginger, and lemon. Subtle citrus tones and the aroma of pine needles fill your nose as you breathe in the luxurious concoction. The lavender and other spices create a warmth in your mouth, while the lemon and pine needles remain defined. If you're a Gin and Tonic person, why not purchase Adler Berlin Dry Gin in a Gin and Tonic Set from the Urban Drinks online shop? The gin comes with 6 bottles of Thomas Henry Tonic Water, which perfectly complements Adler Berlin Dry Gin's character. The Gin and Tonic Set saves you a lot of hassle with finding the right tonic water and is also ideal for stocking up on party supplies.
Cocktail or long drink, Adler Berlin Dry Gin is versatile and tasty
While Adler is great in a Gin and Tonic, it also works well in many cocktails, such as a 'Bramble'. Take 4 or 5 brambles and press them in a tumbler. Add crushed ice and then pour 50ml Adler Berlin Dry Gin, 20ml lemon juice, and 10ml sugar syrup into the tumbler. Garnish with a single bramble and enjoy the berry goodness. The bramble adds a sweetness to the gin and complements the juniper beautifully. Or what about a 'Gin Fizz'? Shake together 50ml Adler Gin, 30ml lemon juice, 20ml sugar syrup, and a few ice cubes together in a shaker. Strain into a tall glass with fresh ice and top with Thomas Henry Soda Water to taste before garnishing with a slice of lemon. Adler works great in this cocktail because the gin's subtle lemon notes are accentuated and brought to the forefront by the lemon juice.
If you're looking for a versatile gin with style then look no further. Adler Berlin Dry Gin works well in both long drinks and cocktails, as well as neat or on the rocks. The retro bottle certainly stands out and is a welcome addition to any drinks table at a party. Purchase Adler today from the Urban Drinks online shop, either on its own or in a Gin and Tonic Set.
