Mister M's London Dry Gin
Brennerei Hubertus Vallendar, Mosel, Deutschland, 500 ml
Mister M, that's Markus del Monego, Sommelier World Champion 1998 and Master of Wine since 2003. Together with the Mosel-based top distiller Hubertus Vallendar, he created this gin as a "world tour in a glass". What does that mean? In addition to the classic juniper berries, eleven other botanicals express themselves in this top distillate and give it notes of citrus, Riesling blossom, lavender or Japanese cherry blossom. Powerful on the palate with a slightly sweet tip and a long-lasting finish, this gin is wonderful to drink on its own, but is also ideal as a gin and tonic, for example with the mild tonic water from the Wilhelm Marx brand. Awards: Double Gold of the World Spirit Awards and Spirit of the year 2020.

Mosel: in Riesling territory
In the valleys of the Mosel, Saar and Ruwer, the white Riesling variety fully fulfils its potential. Mosel is not only the German growing area with the highest proportion of Riesling; the largest number of steep slopes are also found here. Around 40 percent of the vineyards are situated on gradients of greater than 30 percent, and must be cultivated with labour-intensive manual work. On the slate soils, Riesling presents its entire inimitable range, from dry to semidry to noble sweet..
Germany – Into the elite the hard way
Sitting in the heart of Europe, the hilly, lake-dotted landscape of Germany provides ideal, fertile soil for the most diverse vine varieties. From Albalonga to Zweigelt, over 140 different grape varieties are grown on about 100,000 acres, cared for by nearly 50,000 vintners. Most of these vintners are young, modern, internationally trained, inquisitive and urbane. It is hardly surprising, then, that German wine has a good reputation well beyond the country's borders.
