Home is yearning for childhood. These words come from Heinrich Böll. The 3 friends Marcel, Rouven and Raphael grew up together in their homeland, around Niederhofen, near Heilbronn. The rural area, characterized by orchards and vineyards, is also home to the HEIMAT Dry Gin, which is lovingly handcrafted from local herbs from the family’s orchards. Rouven’s father and Raphael’s father-in-law run the fifth generation of the family’s own distillery there. The striking black stoneware bottle with the burned-in wooden cork stands for the down-to-earthness that characterizes this distillery and its products.
HEIMAT Gin pays homage to the rural region around Heilbronn in Baden Württemberg. The focus is on the use of local herbs from own orchards. The processing is based on handpicked botanicals such as meadow sage, thyme and ribwort, as well as apples and pears, which are harvested from the own meadows at the HEIMAT distillery. A total of 18 different botanicals find their way into the black stoneware bottle. Another feature is the wood-fired copper still. The gin is made in a small batch process in a very traditional way. After the distillation process, the gin is stored at 43 % vol. This allows to develop the taste holistically during a rest phase.
The taste of the meadow herbs combined with the fresh apples and pears provides a brief moment of sweetness that changes directly to a Mediterranean note. The light juniper bouquet and pink pepper accompany the finish with a slight sharpness. Afterwards, the floral aromas intensify and ensure a pleasantly soft taste.
