Read about this stuff somewhere some time … sorry, i don’t know it anymore and for sure it is not important. But I am really happy to find this great German GIN. Not because of its winning “WORLD SPIRITS AWARD 2015” but because of its sensational taste. But it is interesting that SIEGFRIED is the highest ranked German Gin ever at World Spirits Award 2015. Because I am not a virtuous Gin Taster – I just can tell you that I like it because of its extremely fresh spicy ginger taste – here is what the makers of SIEGFRIED say about its smell and taste:
Gentle citrus notes of bitter orange are accompanied by hints of thyme , cardamom and juniper and thus develop a harmonious complexity.
Taste:The freshness of lavender meets spicy- earthy notes of ginger, angelica root, cubeb and is finished with a subtle, warm character of linden blooms, which make SIEGFRIED to SIEGFRIED.”

I was really impressed about the taste. I just tried it pure with some ice and later mixed with some Thomas Henry tonic water on citron – great. SIEGRIED Rheinland Dry Gin is as its name tells you from the Rhine Region,  made of a composition of 18 fine botanicals.Linden blooms are used as its lead botanical. The Linden Tree has a leading role in ancient German Nibelung Saga,  when a leaf landed on Siegfried’s back,  while enjoying his bath in the blood of a dragon. “Driven by the sheer desire for honest and artisan products we have developed this premium gin. SIEGFRIED is traditionally distilled in small units from only the finest ingredients, without any industrial tools, artificial flavors or additives, with calm, patience and attention to detail.” And I love the design of the bottle – well done. You can order your SIEGFRIED directly from the distiller: SIEGRFRIED SHOP pics | LTG


i was really surprised when i got the package full of these utmost organic grooming products from the BROOKLYN SOAP COMPANY. rarely i got such a tasteful packed box and not to mention the look of the bottles – awesome! one of the best designs of grooming products i ever saw. and every bottle has its own handwritten paper which person from the company filled it up and a hand stamped date how long the product can be used – love this! this means something personal and human to me in this f***ing fast digital and cursory times. all products are “cooked home-style” with natural and organic ingredients. the statement “born in brooklyn – made in germany”, in HAMBURG, i do not understand really – couldn’t find any information about this. hm, anyway all products are developed and made in germany. the ingredients, even the bottles and the other hardware come from german manufactures. for more information please check their site. i got the bodywash, shampoo and beardwash – all products are since 3 days in use. the beard and the bodywash work perfect and the smell is really exciting fresh but at the same so smooth and cushy. with the shampoo i am a bit doubtful because i am using pomade, LAYRITE, a water soluble one, but i have to work it out hard. maybe i just have to take some more shampoo, hotter water … – i don’t know, i will test it. it is a pity that the pomade and the deodorant are sold out; curios to test these too. beside, in 2014 the company won the REDDOT AWARD – congrats! pics | LTG
