In 2015, Tim Steglich alongside with Max Muggenthaler conceptualised a new gin: a deep blue gin characterised with a fruity and floral nature, topped off with a distinguished twist. When combined with tonic, the otherwise royal blue colour undergoes a natural reaction, to become a gentle pink concoction. And with that, The Illusionist Dry Gin was born. Being new in the scene, the gin presented itself only to a select number of bars, and quickly became the little secret in the gastronomy of Munich. Now, it caters to a larger scale of daily memorable experiences throughout Germany and neighbouring markets. Over the course of a year, the two Illusionists designed a multitude of recipes, which were tested and reviewed across many Friday night private social gatherings. Meticulous trial and error within a predefined framework of desired flavour and aroma eventually led to today’s recipe. A homemade potstill followed soon thereafter, fashioned from old laboratory glass coolers and second hand materials. Illusionist Dry Gin combines influences from around the world. Floral. Fruity. Unexpected. Composed of earthy-warm nutmeg shells, citrus elements and blended with liquorice roots. A total of 16 botanicals combine to deliver a smooth and unobtrusive taste despite the 45% alcohol content. All botanicals are organic, including that of the raw alcohol, making the Illusionist Dry Gin wholly organic. Blanketing these balanced flavours is a mysterious flower from the far east. Not only does it bring harmony to the Illusionist Dry Gin with its tender and nutty aroma, but it is also the source for the gin’s defining blue hue. Given its natural attributes, the blue colouration undergoes a transformation when blended with acidic fruity mixers, making it a spectacle to witness at home, in a bar, or wherever you decide to enjoy it. " Perfect Serve: The Illusionist Dry Gin + Feevertree Indian Tonic Water + Rosemary + Orangezest.
