Nginious Swiss Blended Gin
nginious! is a Swiss gin created by Oliver Ullrich and Ralph Villager, made with a selection of 18 botanicals that have been placed into four groups, which have been distilled and blended together to produce the final spirit. The herbs chosen for nginious! are native to Switzerland and include clover blossom, blackcurrant leaves, bee balm and more. Beautifully presented, too.
Swiss Blended Gin was the first nginious! creation; it is very fresh and well-balanced, full of character and contains a herbal note. The 18 botanicals can be clearly smelled and tasted. It comes with great complexity and seems very soft and harmonic even when drunk pure, despite its 45 % vol. Whereas most gins lose their aromas when tonic is added, tonic water opens up the nginious! Swiss Blended Gin, showing its power.
