German spirits - a treat for special occasions

German spirits have always had a good reputation, even beyond the borders of Germany. However, German spirits are more associated with Nordhäuser Doppelkorn, brandy, gentian or Jägermeister. The range of German spirits is now far more diverse and varied, and German whiskey and German gin are now quite something to behold and taste. German whiskey and German gin no longer need to shy away from comparison with international products and with comparable high-proof drinks from the original countries of origin and are an absolute pleasure for connoisseurs and lovers on special occasions. Such noble brandies come from small manufacturers, where mostly younger people devote themselves to their recipes with all their passion.

German whiskey and German gin are very trendy. In general, high-proof spirits of exquisite quality are increasingly being rediscovered and rediscovered by young consumers with high quality standards. It should be common knowledge that the word spirit comes from the Latin word spiritus for "spirit". The distilling of spirits was therefore already known in antiquity and the ancient Romans may have indulged in the consumption of spirits, although as is well known, the truth was more in the wine. Perhaps it was the monks and spiritual brothers of the Middle Ages who saw their monasteries not only as intellectual and spiritual centers, but also as places for the production and consumption of high-proof spirits.

Did you know that both the English word whiskey and the Russian word vodka mean "water of life", but the name gin is derived from genever? Gin is therefore related to Genever and the German spirit Steinhäger, which was developed in the 19th century in Steinhagen in East Westphalia on the edge of the Teutoburg Forest. German gin made from juniper berry distillate and grain is not that new, but German whiskey is. The Scots are considered to be the inventors of whisky. As different as gin and whiskey are, they are both grain-based spirits and in Germany people are now masters at distilling the two spirits. Test German whiskey and German gin !
