GRANIT (engl. GRANITE) | BAVARIAN GIN

sorry, i found another new german GIN : “GRANIT”, made in bavaria, germany. when i saw the bottle design it was a must to get this GIN to try and to put it to my GIN collection. because of getting better photos the bottle is still closed, so i can’t tell you something about the taste. i still have another german gin from SAARLAND, germany, i did not tried and posted too. when i did this, i will do a gin tasting with just all the different german gins i own. i think my editor PETER Z. will help me to judge and comment the gins. GRANIT is a BIO GIN made of 28 different botanicals. classic gin ingredients like citrus, coriander, cardamon are combined with typical bavarian herbages and plants like melissa, german “BÄRWURZ” and gentian – the description sounds really interesting. after aging some months in stoned barrels the gin is filtered through granite stones with different granulations. the gin has BIO quality! every bottle is delivered with a real granite stone which you can use as an ice cube when you put into the refrigerator. great idea, perfect look. the bottlle design and feel is really awesome! it looks so heritage and masculine, bavarian, craftsmanship. when i found GRANIT @ the PENNINGER site i found BLUTWURZ BLACK EDITION with its distinctive design. i don’t know if i will like this dangerous looking drink ever … but this bottle is a must-have too. i will report after the first try. pics | LTG

 


BEARD OILS FROM OTTER WAX AND MR. BEAR

really funny. i got my beard since 19 years. not always so full as today and the last 5 years but every time more than a mustache. my wife just knows me from photos without having a beard. we are married more than 17 years. but i never found such a lot of beard grooming stuff or styling hints and even men with beards around me than the last 2 years. 2 weeks ago ALEX from because blog send me a wonderful beard soap, i did not tried yet because of the nice look. i wont fuck this up. last friday OLLI THE BARBER gave me the OTTER WAX beard oil for testing. one day before i ordered MR. BEAR BEARD OIL from sweden – that’s life. i did a little comparison of both oils. by the way: if you have a full beard i just can advise you to use an oil. your beard hair is getting smooth and bright. and it is so cool to smell the fresh air blowing up your mind straight from your chin.the package design of OTTER is unbeatable, but the closing of the bottle is really f***ing bad. after in use for 2 times the cover got broken and so you cannot close it correctly any more. MR. BEAR’s bottle design is so shitty that it is really funny and good again. it’s charming – i like it. okay, the bottle looks like a nose drop bottle but the idea with the pump is perfect. so the bottle does not get grease and oily. closing of the bottle works perfect. in use both oils are really great. your beard thanks this grooming to you. it gets a smooth and lightly grip and pleasant log fragrance. OTTER WAX smells so pure for nature: cedar, vetiver, pepper.  you think you walk through a forest by smelling it. MR. BEAR smells natural too but fresher. i got the CITRUS BEAR BREW. the ALL NATURAL OTTER WAX beard oil is made in the USA, MR BEAR comes from sweden. give your beard a try! pics | LTG
