Our Illusionist Gin can change from a royal blue to a gentle pink color thanks to a unique flower from the far east. This flower enables colors to change from a deep blue to a pink with the addition of an acidic mixer, such as Tonic. Our goal is to provide a unique experience for our consumers and allow them to explore the different layers of flavor options that are available.

When it comes to keeping your Illusionist Gin, we've made it with an alcohol content of 45 percent which ensures it doesn't require refrigeration. Once you pop open a bottle of Illusionist Gin, you won't have to keep it in the fridge to ensure a smooth, flavorful spirit. However, you should keep your bottle of gin out of direct sunlight wherever you store it. Ideally, you should store your bottle of Illusionist Dry Gin in a cool, dark space, such as in a pantry or cupboard. It's also vital to properly secure the lid whenever you put it away so that it keeps its rich flavor profile for as long as possible.

In general, our gin will last a minimum of two years from the day it's opened as long as it's stored properly. You can choose to keep your bottle of gin in the freezer if you don't plan on finishing it within the timeframe we mentioned. Although it will not have the aromatic profile that it sports at room temperature, many people prefer the silky texture of chilled gin. Finally, if you simply don't have a cool, dark place to store your gin, you can still keep it in the fridge to ensure it lasts.

Munich has a long and rich history of artisanal distilling, with the first documented evidence of spirits production dating back to the 15th century. The Glockenbach neighborhood is located in the center of Munich and is known for its trendy bars, cafes, and restaurants. It's also home to numerous small-scale distilleries, which is where Illusionist Gin was created.

Our distillers use traditional methods and our founders' unique recipes to produce this spirit, and they take great care to ensure that each batch is of the highest quality. The end result is a smooth and well-rounded classic gin that can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or in a variety of cocktails. If you're looking for a great gin that's made with care and precision, then be sure to try our gin originating from Munich's Glockenbach district.

Our Illusionist Gin bottles are made of glass with a special matte black coating on their exteriors. However, underneath this coating is simple, clear glass. Therefore, if you want to dispose of your bottle of gin properly, discard it in a white glass recycling receptacle.

However, upcycling is the way to go if you want to make the most of our classic gin bottles. For example, you can use the bottle of gin to make a lamp. This is a great way to add a touch of glamour to your home. All you need is an old lampshade, some wire, and your empty bottle of Illusionist Gin. Cut a hole in the bottom of the lampshade, and then feed the wire through the hole. Twist the wire around the neck of the bottle, and then attach the lampshade. You can then light a tealight inside the bottle to create a beautiful light effect.

Of course, you can also replace the lid with a pump handle and fill it with soap for a one-of-a-kind soap dispenser, use it as a flower vase, or any other creative ideas that you can come up with.

The Illusionist Dry Gin is an unfiltered gin, and thereby vegan. There is no need for animal-based products to filter this great gin. In fact, the only ingredients in The Illusionist Dry Gin are our proprietary blend of botanicals to produce its rich, blue color and aromatic flavor profile. So, if you're searching for the best gin to create a vegan-friendly classic cocktail, The Illusionist is a perfect choice.
