WINDSPIEL

WINDSPIEL 

Today we have to talk about a German gin, although we are accustomed to gins made with grain alcohol, this goes out of the ordinary since its alcohol is based on a tuber, as is the potato. But we talked a little about its name » Windspiel «, a curious name where there are. Well, reading a little about this gin I discovered, that the name alluded to Frederick the Great who with the order of the popes, ordered the cultivation of potatoes in Prussia and Pomerania to alleviate the famine of those years. To which they have wanted to honor in a singular way, since it was a great lovers of the breed of dog that appears on the label.
This gin comes as we have said from the volcanic Eifel and its manufacturer is Eifelion GmbH. The idea came from Sandra Wimmeler, Rebeca Mertes, Denis Lonnerdonker and of course the farmer Tobias Schwoll.The botanists are individually macerated and stored in neutral alcohol during days.With the help of Holger Borchers, master distiller of Rockstedt in Lower Saxony, who processes the potatoes for distillation. With fine sweet notes that remind me of licorice. When you try it in the beginning, it gives you a certain itch on the tongue like that produced by pepper, which gives way to juniper and then to citrus, and with clear notes of coriander.
It comes in a bottle of 500 ml of dark color, sealed with an elegant cork handmade in Portugal, from which comes a navy blue cord and a small papyrus where you can read «Faithful to the order of the potato» and in the neck a golden ring.
