Geranium Gin was created by Henrik Hammer, a Dane (and IWSC judge) who has for many years conducted tastings and seminars about gin, and whose mother owned a famous gin bar in Copenhagen. He conceived geranium as a flavour for gin as the smell from the leaves reminded him of the aroma of gin and tonic itself.
When Henrik made a chemical analysis of geranium he found that the significant oils in the plant (geraniol, geraniol formate, linalol, rose oxide, citronelol) are commonly found in fruits, vegetables and spices so he concluded this would be a flavour that would easily mix with a wide variety of mixers.
Henrik’s father was a chemist who worked with essential oils for the perfume and food industry for decades. The father and son team bought a five litre copper pot still and started to experiment how best to process and distil the geranium to best extract its natural oils. At last we have Geranium Gin in Hong Kong.
The most awarded gin in the world. Including San Francisco, World Gin Awards and Hong Kong.
