The Isle of Møn Gin, is an amazing project created by Sara & Uffe Skaaning. The couple set out to create a 100% organic Gin, and using locals botanicals only....!
The junipers where available in relatively large numbers, however they had to get permission from the local wildlife protection office, to be able to pick them in the areas they where located.
But the junipers was the easy part....! With no lemons - or citrus in general - growing in Denmark, they had to start looking into local substitutes, providing the same notes.
The result is a Gin, made from 11 local botanicals - one of which, is 70 million year old chalk - on small 30 liters alembic stills, which is just utterly amazingly complex, crisp and clear in its expression.
Everything is 100% handmade, and truely small batch and extremely well made.
This is the essence of craftsmanship, and we are HUGE fans of this Gin & project!
