XELLENT - Swiss Edelweiss Gin

Introducing XELLENT - Swiss Edelweiss Gin to Hong Kong

XELLENT - Swiss Edelweiss Gin
This XELLENT Swiss Edelweiss Gin is distilled in copper alembics using traditional craftsmanship, with fresh glacier water from Titlis, as well as 25 other selected herbs.

The Edelweiss comes from a farm where it is grown following organic guidelines. Lemon balm and lavender are grown by the Master Distiller Franz Huber himself, in the company's own herb garden. He finds woodruff and elderflower in abundance on his long woodland walks around Willisau. The rest of the herbs in the recipe remain a well-kept secret of the Master Distiller. Once cut or gathered, the herbs and berries are dried slowly, so that they retain their flavor and the essential oils. After the slow drying, the flowers and leaves are plucked from the stems and mixed with the fresh herbs to make a blend following the recipe.

The glacier water that is used to enrich XELLENT after a resting time of several months comes from the Titlis glacier in the heart of Switzerland. The glacier forces its way through the rock from a height of 3,000 metres into the Engelberg Valley, where it reaches a depth of 30 meters. Soft, crystal-clear and rich in oxygen and minerals, this age-old water influences the unmistakable taste of the excellent distillate. It is also down to the glacier water that XELLENT, unlike other spirits, is almost ph-neutral.
