Broken Heart

Central Otago, central otago New Zealand

The story of Broken Heart gin is about remembering a friend. Two German friends, Joerg and Bernd, were living in Queenstown on the South Island of New Zealand. Both of them were philosophers and Master Distillers, and set out to make a superb gin together. Sadly, Bernd unexpectedly fell ill and tragically passed away. To commemorate his friend and to mark a new beginning, Joerg released Broken Heart gin.

Broken Heart is London Dry gin distilled in a small pot still with wheat and molasses base spirit. Eleven botanicals are added, including juniper, coriander seed, lemon peel, lavender, cardamom, cassia, cinnamon and angelica. The New Zealand alpine water gives this gin a captivating purity, and it is well balanced at 40% ABV. The aim was to make a perfumed and crisp gin to drink at dusk, cherishing those 'moments in between'. The suggested serving is with Fever-Tree tonic and a twist of orange over ice.

We managed to get a limited stock of Joerg's Barrel Aged Gin. The gin was rested for six months in old, French Chardonnay barrels, giving the spirit a pale golden colour, light oak and mellow notes with hints of spices.
