Sauguata Gin for a fabulous Easter

Austria counts about 150 gin producers today and exponentially even more variants of individual gins. Sauguata Gin is produced by RSB Spirituosenerzeugungs OG. The Vienna based company was founded by G&T enthusiasts Klaus Burka and friends. Together, they wanted to go ‘Back to the roots’ and create a true London Dry Gin, with an accentuated juniper signature note and classic botanicals including lemongrass, tangerine peel, cinnamon, and ginger.

Nomen est Omen with this gin! Not only does Sauguata Gin taste fabulous, it also scooped up sauviele awards already: ÖGZ, the Austrian trade magazine for the hospitality industry, named Sauguata Gin the winner of their comparative tasting 2019, in Spain it also received a gold medal at the Catavinum Competition, and 93 Points with Falstaff Magazin. At the World Spirits Award 2020, Sauguata Gin achieved the gold medal with 93.3 WOB points among approx. 85 different gin samples.

Sauguata Gin comes in a nice, elaborate packaging. The outer carton is beautifully designed staging the brand’s spirit animal and the wrapping inside is of blue color too. If you receive a gin like this you know it is a gift!

We recommend Copa glasses with ice, ice and more ice. If the tip of your nose doesn’t freeze, there isn’t enough ice in the glass!
