Ginscape is born


It did take quite a long time to get to this stage. To be more precise, 501 days from idea to product launch. It was good to see all the effort put into the project finally resulting in a new beautiful Danish gin. It has been fun to develop the liquid, from idea to final product, with all the knowledge and entusiasm captured in a perfect balanced gin. A clear nose with notes of sea buckthorn, a smooth and balanced taste of juniper, coriander and citrus that smoothly passes on to a soft finish with notes of sea buckthorn and tints of liquorice.


Not to mention det graphical design that took lots and lots of hours and energy from all participants, resulting in a design with the colour of the sea buckthorn berries as dominant, and the contour lines from where the sea buckthorn berries used for the Ginscape grow - the Danish island Bornholm - covering the body of the bottle and the neck ring. We have captured the colour and structure of the rocky formations of Bornholm and the sandy beaches of West Jutland in the colour and appearance of the bar top / cork closure. Finally we have come to the stage where the Ginscape is bottled and ready for the market. It has been a most exciting journey, with lots of enthusiasm, energy and professionalism. We are proud of the result, and we are proud to launch this exciting new Danish gin.


An exceptional gin with elegance and style.

Product launch af Politikens Hus in Copenhagen

An exciting day for a new brand and product. We have done everything we could to develop our new Danish premium gin to meet the level of prefectionism, reflecting our gin ambitions and tasting style, and done our best for design and packaging of the bottle. We know it's all about the liquid, but to us it is vital that the bottle reflects the Danish Sea Buckthorn ("Havtorn") content; the clear sight at the sea side, the fresh winds, the light when looking over the sea, the soft dunes and the whisper of the winds in the sea buckthorn bushes. And here we were, and here we are. The Ginscape was extremely well received by visitors, gin entusiasts and gin makers from other brands. We are proud of our Ginscape, and hope Ginscape will be enjoyed and bring relaxed, enjoyable and balaned moments. We did enjoy the launch, and enjoyed the warm welcome and very positve comments from visitors, gin entusiasts, gin conneseurs and gin makers.

Gin Cruise at Nordre Tolbod in Copenhagen

Being announced at WhyNotGin blog was great - even greater to be selected as a preferred gin for the WhyNotGin Gin Cruise in connection to the pop-up bar at Nordre Toldbod in Copenhagen Harbour. A beautiful sunny day - except precisely for the one hour when the cruise took place. Guess we have all tried that! However, all smile, all happiness, and a perfect guided introduction to our Ginscape with beautiful old buildings of Copenhagen as setting. The serve was lots of ice, 1 part Ginscape, 2 parts Fever-Tree Indian Tonic, a couple of sea buckthorn berries and a slice of lemon peel slightly twisted. Sorry for not placing a photo of the full glasses - but the Ginscape was actually so well received that it was not possible to captue a picture of a newly served Ginscape.

Ginscape at Ringsted Festival 2017

It was raining. Not silent as normal summer rain. It was poring down as under a waterfall. Fields and paths were mudded, all wet, but the recption of Ginscape was fantastic.  Quality from a-z at the Ginscape bar was carring the vistorrs to a fanastic experience. A beautiful bar, in burned wood accommodated by smiling servants, supported the profile of Ginscape.  Beautifully presented, beautifully served. It all took the Ginscape experience to the top.


We are happy being a part of the Ringsted Music Festival, and feel certain the visitors at the festival and at the Ginscpe bar enjoyed the experiences.


See you all in 2018, and thank you for some fantastic days.
