Von Hallers Gin is old school and has remained in style over the centuries. The gin’s origin begins when Albrecht von Haller, a naturalist considered ‘the father of modern physiology’, founded what is now known as the Old Botanical Gardens of Gottingen University. It was there he grew the three main ingredients that would flavour the gin; lemon verbena, German ginger, and Halleria. The latter was named after von Haller and grew small, sweet smelling fruits.
Von Hallers Gin is a liquor with much potential that is wasted on only making gin and tonics. Shake up your regular routine with these suave cocktails.
