Immerse yourself in a world where tradition meets innovation. The UNKNOWN Lands | GIN - Double Cask is not just another gin in our collection. It is an exciting evolution that takes the essence of our Classic Gin in a new, unexplored direction. 

Our journey began with our UNKNOWN Lands | Gin - Classica fascinating and aromatic spirit produced with the utmost care using the renowned London Dry method. Based on our Classic Gin, we have created a special edition that enriches the world of spirits. By storing it in old white oak sherry and bourbon barrels, we have created a "Double Cask - Barrel Aged Gin" that revolutionizes the flavour landscape. These barrels, previously filled with exquisite sherry and bourbon varieties, are not just simple storage containers, but a treasure trove of the finest aromas.

During the careful maturation in these barrels, the gin absorbs the intense aromas from the wood and blends with the spicy and sweet nuances that previously gave the bourbon and sherry their character. The oak barrels in which fine spirits once matured leave their indelible signature in the gin, making it a complex, balanced and unique taste experience that can be felt in every sip. 

Our Double Cask combines the floral and fruity notes of lavender, wild raspberries and cranberries with the sweet nuances of caramel and vanilla from the white oak wood. There is also the unmistakable smoky finish that comes from the bourbon and sherry casks. This special edition is more than just a new version of our gin - it is an ode to the art of distillation and a discovery of the unlimited possibilities made possible by barrel ageing in such historic and aromatically saturated casks.

Imagine sitting in front of a crackling fire in the evening, which casts shadows on the walls and conjures up a warm, inviting glow in the room.

Bourbon Barrel

Barrel aging in bourbon barrels is a traditional technique that gives spirits a special depth. Made from American white oak, these barrels, in which bourbon has previously matured, transfer unique aromas of caramel, vanilla and smoke to the alcohol stored in them. The choice of a bourbon barrel adds a rich flavor note to the final product and gives it a touch of American heritage. 

Bourbon barrels often find a second life in the storage of other spirits, wines or beers. This process contributes to sustainability and allows other beverages to pick up the complex flavors of bourbon. Barrel aging in a bourbon barrel is not just a maturation method, but an alchemical process that creates a new, refined drink that culminates in a glass.

Sherry Barrel

The use of sherry casks for barrel aging is a respected tradition that gives spirits a unique and distinctive quality. Sherry, a famous Spanish fortified wine, leaves a trail of rich and complex aromas in its barrels, ranging from nuts to dried fruits and sweet spices. 

These barrels, often made from European oak, have often allowed the sherry to mature for years and are carriers of its deep and robust aromas. When they are later used for the barrel aging of spirits, they pass on these aromas and create a drink that is as layered and subtle as the sherry itself.

Juniper

Juniper is the basic botanical that gives gin its distinctive, resinous and slightly sweet taste. Juniper berries are actually female cones and take two to three years to fully ripen on a juniper bush. They have a long history in the healing arts and were already used in ancient Egypt as an ingredient in balms and ointments. A trivia fact: In the Middle Ages, juniper was believed to protect against witches and the berries were often hung over doorways to ward off evil spirits.

Lavender

With its characteristically sweet, floral aroma and calming properties, lavender lends gin a special, elegant depth. Lavender was used in ancient Rome to clean clothes and to aromatize baths, leading to its Latin name, which is derived from "lavare", the word for "to wash". A lesser known fact is that lavender was also used in the Middle Ages to repel insects and mice.

An interesting fact: wild raspberries often grow in areas that have been devastated by forest fires.

As a botanical, it gives gin a subtle complexity and a hint of forest aroma.

Pink pepper

Pink pepper, also known as Brazilian pepper, gives gin a fruity, peppery note. Despite their name, pink berries are not real peppercorns, but the dried berries of the Schinus molle, a South American plant. They give gin a balance between sweetness and spiciness, with a hint of resin. Surprisingly, the Incas used "molles", as Schinus molle is known, for ritual purposes and in the 19th century its berries arrived in Europe as an inexpensive substitute for real pepper.

Angelica root

Angelica root is a classic gin botanical that imparts an earthy, slightly bitter flavor and a deep, complex note.
