Flamingo’s are curious creatures. How I know? Because I am one. You can call me Sir Edmond, creator of the world’s first vanilla infused gin. Being a migratory bird from the island of Réunion, vanilla capital of the world, it made sense to me to create a gin that honours and evolves around one of the most valued flavors in world history and the botanical I adore the most, vanilla. I took inspiration from how the world’s best haute cuisine chefs use spices to perform culinary magic, in how to create this truly distinctive gin. I collected the finest ingredients, selected with the sole purpose of supporting the vanilla that gives my rebellious spirit its unusual character. My gin comes about through a precise distilling process involving juniper, angelica root, ginger, cardamom and cinnamon. This distillate then gets infused with Bourbon vanilla for a few weeks, resulting in the game-changing taste of Sir Edmond Gin. The combination of six botanicals provides both cocktail lovers and bartenders with an incomparable drinking experience that calls for a new approach and drives inspiration. Since the vanilla beats juniper’s natural bitterness, mixologists are challenged to rethink the possibilities of gin when it comes to creating new cocktails and reinventing classics. In a blind tasting, our delicate palette took the judges of the Spirits Business Awards 2017 by surprise. Sir Edmond was awarded with a Master Medal. I hate to admit it, but I’m as proud as a peacock (although a lot less arrogant). Allow Sir Edmond Gin to be the fuel to your next fabulous evening out or be there when you treat yourself to a perfect cocktail at home. Call me your wingman and treat your taste buds to a gin adventure you aren’t likely to forget any time soon. Great gin is only half the story, though. The truth is in the adventure. So by all means, read on. Let me tell you about my ingredients, my favourite serves, my namesake and inspiration Mr Edmond Albius, and the African Wildlife Foundation I support. I want you to be part of this rebellious and unusual journey, too. Because you know, in the end, it’s all about leaving a legacy. Are you ready to fly? www.siredmondgin.com

In 2019, two brothers created T’s Organic Vodka. When they were younger, Bob and Max loved going out for drinks. They spent most of their nights exploring the Amsterdam nightlife, without caring at all about what they drank or how much. However, as they got older , the boys developed and so did their taste. Unfortunately, there was no vodka that could match their development in taste. Being two bold guys from Amsterdam, they decided not to continue drinking the Vodka they drank as young boys. Instead, they developed their own Vodka, made with 100% Organic Dutch grains and water from the largest natural reserve in the Netherands. Distilled six times in copper stills and matured for six weeks in copper barrels, all to give T’s its full, round body an its unique featherlight finish. Try it yourself and experience Vodka with Good Taste! www.tsorganicvodka.com

One rainy autumn afternoon in 2009, a young student called Pascal landed on his couch, wondering why he was more hung-over than usual. He soon found out that “purer” spirits cause less hangovers. And that it was highly illegal to distill your own… …next thing he knew he was secretly distilling his first spirit in the bathtub of his student home. This is how The Stillery was conceived, in mischievous silence. While Pascal’s roommates were busy pursuing corporate careers, he used his knowledge of Biochemistry to build three pot stills, each one bigger than the last. Tirelessly, he studied the books to get to the bottom of the biochemical processes happening in his bathtub, slowly perfecting his craft of liquor making. When he reunited with his old mate Robin a few years later, they were both out of a steady job. Pascal produced his unlabelled bottle of vodka, Robin was instantly convinced of its potential and Daan joined shortly after. They made an alliance, raised their glasses and said cheers to the future. And the rest, as they say, is artistry. www.the-stillery.nl
