Wacholderbär’s southern Austrian gin, Veltliner Grapes & Saffron is a floral and sweet gin made with botanicals from southern Austria. These include Veltliner grapes, known for their gentle fruity and peppery flavour. The use of saffron among the botanicals gives this gin a pale yellow colour, and rose petals provide the gin with a delicious, floral nose.
The name of the distillery, Wacholderbär, means ‘Juniper Bear’ and refers to the brown bears that used to inhabit Austria, particularly in the region of Styria. These bears could be seen feasting on the juniper berries throughout the summers, and though bears have not been seen in the area for many years, the juniper bear lives on in Wacholderbär distillery.
