IN 2015, Tim alongside with Max conceptualised a new gin: a deep blue gin characterised by a distinct fruity and floral body, topped off with a distinguished twist. When combined with tonic, the otherwise royal blue colour undergoes a natural reaction, to become a gentle pink concoction. And with that, The Illusionist Dry Gin was born.
Being new in the scene, the gin presented itself only to a select number of bars, and quickly became the little secret in the gastronomy of Munich. Now, it caters to a larger scale of daily memorable experiences throughout Germany and neighbouring markets.
Unravel the secret of the Illusionist: A deep blue gin, that augments you from your daily sloth, and upon mixing with tonic, delivers the gentle yet enticing pink elixir. Born in the locale Glockenbach of Munich, ready for new adventures.
THE ILLUSIONIST DRY GIN combines influences from around the world. Floral. Fruity. Unexpected. An “unfiltered” gin, composed of earthy-warm nutmeg shells, citrus elements and blended with liquorice roots. A total of 16 botanicals combine to deliver a smooth and unobtrusive taste despite the 45% alcohol content. All botanicals are organic, including the raw alcohol, making the Illusionist Dry Gin wholly certified organic.
Often, it is easy to take for granted the attentive care we place in the selection of our wholly organic ingredients that give life to our uniquely balanced product. It is, in essence, the delicate complementarity of aroma and taste between our 16 hand-picked ingredients which are so graciously persuasive, time and time again.
BEHIND THE SCENES of every great endeavour are real people who are committed in their relentless action to a commonly shared vision, and the Illusionist Distillery is no exception. Our dedication to source entirely organic ingredients through long-term prosperous relationships with regional and international farmers in local artisan communities is what reaffirms the consistency of flavour and quality. Without this thriving cooperation our hand-crafted gin would never have been able to flourish.
A result of our commitment to regionally sourcing only the best organic ingredients harvested in their ideal agricultural conditions, is the seasonality of the Illusionist Dry Gin. This bestows upon our gin a wonderfully ephemeral character, making every batch unique in its own right due to the constant subtleties of variation between winter and summer harvests.
