Turmeric from Zanzibar. Our not-so-secret secret ingredient

When finding a name for our character with a strong personality Tumeric Gin we only have one letter from English turmeric (Turmeric) left out. In addition to the dominant juniper note, which turns a schnapps into a gin, you can taste a second lead aroma in our turmeric gin - What used to be an absolute no-go for schnapps distillers makes our gin an indispensable taste experience for connoisseurs and connoisseurs today.

The yellow treasure from the island of spices

Zanzibar is also called Island of Spices known - if you stay there longer, you will not lose a so-called Spice tour around. We got to know and love the spices of Zanzibar and took small samples from every vacation to Hamburg to explore new worlds of taste in our home distillery. We process the turmeric by hand in our Hamburg factory - every drop of ours Tumeric Gin is therefore something very special for us.


Superfood in schnapps, turmeric as an all-round booster

It is well known that spicy and bitter aromas go well with juniper schnapps, so this is why you should listen Gin and Tonic to the standard repertoire of every gastronomy. The tropical turmeric (Curcuma longa) freshly tastes slightly resinous and hot, if it is dried it tastes slightly bitter. Like all ginger spices, turmeric is also full of substances that have a positive effect on the body:

Turmeric is a recognized medicine.

The yellow dye Curcumin is said to have analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects.

Free radicals are harmful oxygen compounds that accelerate cell aging and weaken the immune system. Antioxidants bind these harmful substances and therefore also have an effect positive for the complexion and hair growth and are considered natural rejuvenating agents.

Curcumin is a natural blood thinner (just like alcohol) and stimulates blood flow.

The root has a positive effect on the metabolism and contributes to the purification of toxins.
