Kongsgaard named April gin of the month

06 April, 2017

Danish gin brand Kongsgaard has been named Craft Gin Club’s April gin of the month.

The new gin was developed in Denmark and distilled in Cognac, France by husband and wife Søren and Bettina Kongsgaard.

Søren Kongsgaard said: “We source our apples from small, local orchards, situated on little islands in the southern archipelago of Denmark.

“The climate here ensures that our apples are really flavourful, and the terroir is exceptional.”

Craft Gin Club members will be the first in the world to try the new gin blended with charred oak, tree resin, and apples.

The Craft Gin Club is the UK’s number one subscription gin club that selects a monthly award to a craft brand.

Bettina Kongsgaard added: “Due to the climate here, the ratio of sour to sweet in Danish apples is really unique. We’ll only ever use Danish apples, and we’ll feature the harvest and the apple type on every bottle.”

However, while revenues are returning and bars are beginning to recruit once more, we’ve come up against a whole new set of problems, one of which is a global starring crisis.
