TWO BROTHERS FROM ZURICH

AT THE GATES OF THE CITY OF ZURICH, FAR AWAY FROM THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE OF THE METROPOLIS, LIES OUR OLD FAMILY FARM, THE BIRTHPLACE OF US, GIAN AND FLORIAN. ALREADY AT A YOUNG AGE WE WERE UNITED BY THE PASSION TO CREATE SOMETHING NEW AND TO MAKE A BREAKTHROUGH. THIS IS EXACTLY WHERE WE DECIDED TO COMBINE OUR COMPLEMENTARY SKILLS AND BRING DEUX FRÈRES GIN TO LIFE. BEVERAGE AND FOOD TECHNOLOGIST FLORIAN IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL RECIPES AND LIKES TO TINKER WITH THEM IN THE LAB. GIAN, FORMER PROFESSIONAL HANDBALL PLAYER AND BWL STUDENT, FOCUSES HIS ENERGY ON BUILDING THE DEUX FRÈRES GIN BRAND.

 

OUR GOAL IS TO ACTIVATE ALL THE SENSES. OUR DEUX FRÈRES GIN THEREFORE NOT ONLY RELIES ON THE MAGIC OF ITS CHANGING COLOR, BUT ALSO IMPRESSES WITH ITS HIGH-QUALITY INGREDIENTS. THROUGH THE INTERPLAY OF HERBAL FRAGRANCES, WE REALIZED THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO CREATE OTHER PRODUCTS THAT PURSUE THE ACTIVATION OF THE SENSES. WE WANT TO CREATE MOMENTS THAT CAN BE ENJOYED TOGETHER. 

 

TO ACHIEVE THIS, WE TOOK AN IMPORTANT STEP - WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE ENTIRE FAMILY - AFTER THREE YEARS OF STEADY GROWTH AND MOVED OUT OF THE FAMILY BUSINESS TO SETTLE IN AN INDUSTRIAL AREA ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF ZURICH.

HOME GIN LAB IN ZURICH

THE FIRST RECIPE FOR THE DEUX FRÈRES, L1000T1, WAS DEVELOPED IN SECRECY AT A ZURICH HOME LABORATORY, FAR AWAY FROM LARGE GIN DISTILLERIES. AT THE TIME, THE GIN WAS STILL VACUUM DISTILLED IN 2.5-LITRE BATCHES IN A SELF-MANUFACTURED DISTILLATION PLANT BUILT FROM INDIVIDUAL GLASS COMPONENTS. OUR FIRST GIN RECIPE CONSISTED OF 11 BOTANICALS AND HAD A DISTINCTIVE, FINE CITRUS AROMA.

 

AFTER A YEAR AND A HALF OF NUMEROUS DISTILLATIONS AND RECIPE ADJUSTMENTS, WE FOUND OUR SIGNATURE RECIPE IN TYROL, TOGETHER WITH OUR MASTER DISTILLERS. THE 25 CONSTITUENT BOTANICALS GAVE OUR DEUX FRÈRES GIN ITS DISTINCTIVE TASTE AND BLUE COLOUR.

ALTHOUGH WE INVENTED THE GIN IN ZURICH, SWITZERLAND, THE GIN WAS DISTILLED IN THE BEAUTIFUL AUSTRIAN REGION OF TYROL, IN A TRADITIONAL DISTILLERY WELL KNOWN FOR ITS FINE BRANDIES AND OVER 400 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE. THE COPPER DISTILLATION PLANT AND EXPERTISE OF OUR MASTER DISTILLERS MAKE FOR DECISIVE FACTORS CONTRIBUTING TO THE COMPLEXITY OF THE DEUX FRÈRES AROMA.

 

THE SPIRIT IS CAREFULLY TRANSPORTED TO ZURICH IN CHROME STEEL CANISTERS. HAND-PICKED PLANTS ARE ADDED TO THE MIX AND THE GIN IS MACERATED ONE LAST TIME AT LOW TEMPERATURES.
