Geranium Gin

Launched in September 2009 in Denmark, Geranium Gin was created by Henrik Hammer, an accredited IWSC Gin judge and a man who clearly knows his gin. He brought the product to the UK in early 2010 as gin to be used as a tool for bartenders and an experience for gin enthusiasts, not be sold commercially in supermarkets.

Hammer is not one for convention, as his efforts with Hammer and Son, or his choice of the unique, defining botanical that lends its name to this brand demonstrates. While geranium might appear to be an odd botanical pairing with juniper, Henrik’s research revealed that geranium extracts share a history parallel with juniper and angelica.

He was able to prove, at least theoretically, that geranium was an appropriate botanical for gin, after he determined that its core extracts were present in juniper and lemon. It was his theory that this being the case, geranium could enhance and complement classic gin flavours and profiles.

Working with his dad, a small 5 litre still was used to experiment at home for months of trials, until they found a method to prepare, macerate and distil geranium that they were happy with. The final product is distilled using pure wheat grain alcohol and ten botanicals including the aforementioned geranium, juniper and lemon, as well as angelica root, cassia bark, coriander seeds, liquorice, orange, orris root and one secret ingredient.

These botanicals are then steeped for 48 hours prior to distillation in small batches in an old pot still nicknamed ‘Constance’ in Langley’s Distillery in Birmingham. After distillation, the spirit is transported to Thames Distillers Ltd for bottling.
