The Kluimpp dry gin is a handcrafted gin from beautiful Klumpp distillery located in Bruchsal, Germany.
Their core production does wine and they own large wine fields in the area. One of their destilates besides wine is
Gin and it is a classic dry gin bottled at 44% abv.
It’s tripple distilled and aged for 120 days in a sainless steel tank. Some of their ingredients composing this gin are
Thyme, Carrots, Chamomile, Honorary Award, Oregano, Fenchel, Angelica Root, Juniper Berries. It is quite unique
to the distillery to use carrots in theri botanical mix.
As the distillery itself their products are minimalistic, modern and stands out among the other brands I’ve seen in those
Wolfburn Aurora has matured in a combination of casks – 40% of this whisky was aged in second-fill quarter casks,
40% in first-fill ex-bourbon barrels and 20% in first-fill Oloroso Sherry hogsheads.
I totally love the bottle design and chosen colors on this one. The liquid is golden with a black
and white label and details in rose gold /copper. This expression is bottled at 46% abv and was released late 2016.
Some notes from the distillery:
Sherry sweetness is followed by aromas of freshly cut grass
and autumn fruits, with just a hint of coffee and dark chocolate.
Floral tones come to the fore, with overtones of spice and vanilla.
Fruity sweetness coats the palate, with fruit and nut flavours leading to a warm, soft finish.
