Interview with Taunus-Gin GmbH : Gin with an Exceptional Taste

Taunus-Gin GmbH by London Newspaper

Taunus Gin owes its unique aroma not only to the juniper but also to eleven other hand-picked botanicals from the Taunus. In addition to the slightly bitter ethereal aroma of young spruce shoots, rosemary and elderberry also play a part. Everyone enjoys their gin differently, the tastes are different. But our Ursel is picky – the full aroma only develops in combination with the right tonic water.

In the interview shared below, we gain insights into the Taunus-Gin GmbH products with a fresh perspective on the values and qualities producer is looking for in the production journey.

Q. What is the core product of Your brand?

A. Ursel HERITAGE Premium Dry Gin

Q. Tell us about the process Your product goes through, from sourcing to the packaging phase?

A. It all starts with the lead botanical of our Ursel Gin: fresh sprouce spouts. Those are a rare ingredient, only available on the tip of the trees that are growing them. So once a year within a very short season we finde ourselfs in the woods, hand-picking those light green tips for our yearly production.
Our Gin is handcrafted by solely using selected biological components and bottled by hand in our small distillery.

Q. What are the qualities You are looking for when creating Your product?

A. We aim for a sustainable production of high quality Gin with an exceptional taste. Therefor we only use certified organic ingerdients and put great emphasis on a regional and resource-saving production.

Q.  What makes Your product better than the one of Your competitor?

A. Some of our botanicals are quite expensive, which causes a lower margin per bottle. However we believe the outstanding taste of our high-class ingredients is worth the price and our aspiration.

Q. What is the greatest challenge You’ve encountered while creating Your product?

A. The greatest challenge still is to enhance the public attention for our products, so more people get the chance to try them and fall in love with our Ursel.
