Knut Hansen dry gin

Knut hansen dry gin has special bottle art and packaging compared to other gin I’ve stumbled upon.
The majority of their botanicals come from their in region Germany. Many botanicalscomes from the fine northern Germany.
For example, the apples come from the Altes Land south of the Elbe, the basil and cucumbers are taken from the family’s own greenhouse and the rose blossoms come from the Baltic Sea dike.
They value great importance to high-quality raw materials without flavor enhancers, colorings or preservatives.
As I said before they uses Ceramic bottles which is an enviromental friendly material and the bottle is completely recyvcable.

The Dry gin is handcrafted in Haburg and has balanced nuances of cucumber, basil and citrus fruits, accompanied by juniper and fresh apples.
It is bottled at 42% ABV and comes in different sizes.


Glencadam 15yo 46%

Glencadam is a small distillery compared with other scottish distilleries,
it’s located in the east of the highland region that is owned by Angus Dundee distiller since 2003.
Glencadam distilled their first spirit 1825 and was founded by George Cooper. Because of production stop somewhere between 2000-2003
Their 15yo dissapeared from the marked for a while but is back in their core range. What i like about them is that they have many age stated
whiskies in their core range which is not that usual now days.

Glencadam 15yo is a highland single malt aged in aged in oak barrels for 15 years. There is no chill filtration and no coloring added and its bottled
at 46% abv to give you some more strength and lift the flavours which I prefer!

Tomintoul 10

As the bottle says this is also anothe gentle dram from Tomintoul, aged for 10 years in
ex bourbon casks. The abv on this one is 40% and was first introduced to their range back in 2002.
This bottle is available in both 70cl and 100cl depending on market. The dram has won several priced since launch and been
in the game for a while now.

After searching for several years for the purest natural water in Scotland, they discovered the Ballantruan Spring.
For millions of years, this water has flowed through the mountain near Tomintoul, the highest village in the highlands.
In the heart of the Speyside Glenlivet region, Tomintoul’s distillery was built to capture this unique resource.

Teeling 18 Year Old – The Renaissance Series 3

Teeling the Renaissance was first released in 2019 to celebrate the real global renaissance of Teeling.
The first release was a 18yo whiskey matured in ex-bourbon casks then finished in Ex-Madeira casks for 18 months.
The second release in the series  was instead finished in ex-Australian Shiraz wine casks.

This is their third release and as the previous ones its 19 years old and finished in ex-Muscat wine casks.
Bottled at 46% with no chill filtration and only 9000 bottles produced.
It comes in a luxarious package and the bottle is wide and thin instead of the classic shape bottles which makes
it stand out from the other whiskies in the cabinet.

I have been really hooked on the Irish whiskey lately. Tried a lot different sample releases from them and because my love to peated whiskey,
I really appreciated their first take on peated irish whiskey, it’s a success!
