The King Gin
The unique and strong flowery aroma from the more than 50 herbs is one of the hallmarks of The King
Distilled in specialized copper-wessels, the gin has made it into the market as both a stand-alone enjoyment, and even as a noted mix into classics like Gin-Tonic, now called 'King-tonic'.
Black Forest is delighted to be the first importer to Thailand of this outstanding product, which complements our selection of Phuket's leading gin and wine sortiment.
With even more exhibitors and visitors than last year, ProWein 2018 established its leadership in wine fairs. Over 6,870 exhibitors from 64 countries had made their way to Düsseldorf, and more than 60,000 visitors came to watch, taste and buy.
As a major source of competitive wine information Black Forest was there again. Enjoy a few pictures below.
The Duke Gin
A five-of-five star rating on TheWhiskeyExchange.com is not easy to achieve
But The Duke did it. Maybe it is the 13 selected herbs from the best of German farmland? Or it might be the Bavarian hops, a very special ingredient.
Would you agree with the The Whiskey Exchange reviewer who wrote:
" Fragrant and complex, with notes of cardamom, coriander, pine and berries, this reminded me of a wooded glade filled with fruit trees and bushes.
Taste: Floral and herbal, with a touch of bitterness. There was also some cardamom, pine, wood bark, heavy coriander, violet, chocolate and a hint of coffee."
Try it for yourself, and let your customers try too. Even if they don't get quite the same list they will understand by Black Forest is proud to introduce The Duke to Thailand.
Feel! Gin, Münich
Like for making wine, making gin is an art, and the top few are rare and appreciated.
The secret? It's the water used. It's the composition of the herbs. It's all this being preserved in the filtering process.
And it can not be big-scale production, but must be done "by hand" and by a few people who love their work.
Black Forest has selected one of the finest known, the Feel! Gin from Münich.
You can take our word for it, but you can also search for reviews in Google, they all agree with us:

"Intense on the nose with blackcurrant, bramble fruit and violet aromas. Full in texture, the palate is rich and fruity with notes of thyme and eucalyptus on the very long finish. A delicious example of this vintage.
