Bruut Gin 40° 70Cl
This conceptual gin has been made for Bistro Bruut in Bruges. Our client wanted two main things in the gin: first of all 'Gruut', the medieval spices that were used for brewing beer and second 'Mede', the medieval honeywine referring to the bridge next to the restaurant. The branding was done by the client himself and is based on the big painting hanging in the dining room.
Our goal is always to have a soft taste and aftertaste. No matter the alcohol level, the gin must be drinkable without ice or tonic, at roomtemperature. This is our own standard of a high quality spirit. Bruut Gin is very aromatic with a lot of spices (rosemary, sage, black pepper) and a floral touch of the honey. On the tongue you get the power of all the herbs we used, with a very long aftertaste.
Mix it with a neutral tonic and add some lemon thyme and a wedge of kumquat.
