Today I went to Maruhn “The World of Beverages”, one of the best sorted shops in Germany! The last months I collected a lot of beverage boxes in the basement of special craft beers, exotic soft drinks etc that I just could give back directly to Maruhn – complicated because of driving some kilometers, but pure money. So I got nearly 30 € back and I did not want to take another new box with me. So I decided to check Maruhn’s Gin rack. Damn … !!! I don’t know how many different sorts of Gin Maruhn offers, but believe me: nearly uncountable. And the best is, that you find really exotic sorts and labels beside all these nowadays hipster Gins like Monkey 47, Ferdinand’s etc. So I discovered GIN SIEBEN. When you live in Hessen, Germany, you know what “Grüne Soße” or as the Frankfurt citizens say “Grie Soß” is. You don’t know? “In Germany green sauce is known as Frankfurter Grüne Soße. It is a traditional dish in Frankfurt and Hessen. The cold herb sauce consists of sour cream, boiled eggs, spices, and of course, herbs.  Rumours and heated discussions about the origins of the Frankfurter Grüne Soße, as well as what is considered the authentic recipe, circulate about this famous german food.” (by Germany Insider Facts). GIN SIEBEN is made of the obligatory juniper but combined with the typical “Grüne Soße” botanicals like borage – great taste! –, chervil, peppergrass, parsley, burnet, garden sorrel and chive. What a wonderful taste, not so extreme fruity but really pleasant extraordinary but smooth – I am excited. All seven herbs come from Oberrad, a part of the Frankfurt City, the of the herbs is inspired by Frankfurt’s “Grie Soß”, the basic alcohol is from a distillery near Frankfurt, the grain for this also, the same with the water: a “Frankfurt Original”.
