TRADITION AND CRAFTSMANSHIP
Friedrichs Dry Gin is distilled slowly and carefully in the traditional handmade pure copper still. Through the distilling over copper the distillate is catalyzed. That very special distillation method gives Friedrichs Dry Gin its exceptionally mild taste.
Since juniper has been distilled over that copper still in Steinhagen since 1766, Friedrichs Dry Gin takes the line of successful brands like "Original Schlichte Steinhäger" and "Schlichte Urbrannt" into the modern age.
THE STEINHÄGER PROCESS.
THE JUNIPER BERRIES
The well-selected juniper berries are filled into the juniper crusher. Then they are macerated in fermentation tanks (mixed with yeast and water) and fermented for several days. The resulting juniper berry mash is then distilled over copper, resulting in the purest juniper spirit.Maische wird anschließend über Kupfer destilliert, wodurch reinster Wacholderlutter entsteht.
The selected botanicals for Friedrichs Dry Gin, including extracts of curaçao peel, orange blossom leaves, coriander, angelica seeds and rosemary are mixed and carefully macerated (prepared with alcohol and water).
The juniper spirit created from the distilled juniper berry mash is distilled together with the herbal macerate and alcohol over the unique traditional equipment, the special gin copper still, and then reduced to drinking strength. This harmonizes the juniper note with the other botanicals. Distillation over pure copper provides the mildness of flavor.
