GIN

København is Danish for Copenhagen. København Klassisk Gin carries one of the highest levels of juniper berries in the world delivering flavour the original way. The creatively crafted small batch gin is a modern variation over a classic theme.

The bottle is inspired by traditional pharmacy bottles, a premium and distinct look that captures the simplicity and minimalist design heritage of Denmark.

COCKTAIL

GGC Cocktail Recipe

  • 30 ml København Klassisk Gin
  • 10 ml Luxado Marachino
  • 10 ml Lemon Juice
  • 10 ml Pink grapefruit juice
  • 10 ml sugar syrup
  • 3 slices of ginger
  • Champagne

Put the ginger in a shake, then add the juices, the sugar and the København Klassisk Gin. Shake it, fine strain into a chilled white wine glass, garnish with Pink grapefruit zest for more fresh and fruitiness, or ginger if you prefer. It takes a bit of work, but it’s well worth it.

Cocktail Tasting Notes: “Honey and yellow fruits on the nose with a touch of ginger, flavours are a pleasing contrast between dry and sweet citrus initially with a more’ish grapefruit length.”
