The new gin is made with a base wheat spirit (very bunlike, don’t you think?) that’s infused with mustard seed prior to distillation. Beef patties and tomatoes are placed in the still’s infusion chamber. And it’s made, charmingly enough, by a distillery in Hamburg, Germany.
“Despite its unusual ‘botanicals,’ Hamburger Gin is very much reminiscent of a classic London Dry gin but with very subtle influences from the meat, mustard seeds and sundried tomato,” says publisherSimon Difford in his tongue-in-cheek tasting notes.
