The Last Barrel Escher Gin - 70cl
An age-old family recipe convinces with a complex aroma game
The Last Barrel Escher Gin 70cl unfolds a wonderful scent of fresh citrus fruits, tart orange blossoms, cardamom and of course juniper after opening. The Swiss gin is also convincing in terms of taste.
The Swiss gin unfolds a complex play of aromas on the tongue. Nuances of fresh orange and lemon harmonize with apple and blossom aromas. The typical juniper taste does not appear immediately. Little by little it shows up together with a touch of toffe. In the finish, the drink is particularly soft thanks to the special manufacturing process. The balanced fruity nuances ensure a pleasant balance. The gin is not made with wheat alcohol as usual. Instead, sugar beets are used. As a result, the aromas of the gin are particularly strong and long-lasting. Whether pure or as a basis for a refreshing gin and tonic: with the juniper schnapps, the manufacturer has created a unique taste experience.
The story behind the product is also fascinating. The recipe for the Swiss juniper schnapps is said to have originated in the early 19th century. Since gin was rarely available in Switzerland at the time, Johann Ferdinand Fässler developed his own gin without further ado. The drink was not officially sold at the time. But the people in the circle of friends and acquaintances were delighted with the home-made gin. In 2017, one of Fässler's descendants discovered the recipe for the juniper schnapps by chance. With that, the drink finally found its well-deserved way onto the shelves.
