Less juniper, a greater focus on other ingredients and German organic wheat alcohol from local grain: these characteristics make Berlin’s Gentle Gin so special that even ‘sipping it on the rocks’ becomes a special treat.“The idea for the start-up was a kind of coincidence,” smiles Stanislav Bic, Gentle Gin’s spice man. “I’m passionate about herbs, opened a herb shop and, through this, I met the Scottish gin producer Marcus. We then founded Gentle Gin and he became our gin master.” Bero Aslan, a true allrounder, is Gentle Gin’s third member. Together, the trio creates super gentle, smooth gins that are full of aromas and impress with a mild nish.
