Granit. Ein Gin wie Bayern.
Alte Hausbrennerei Penninger is the leading distiller of traditional Bavarian speciality spirits. Utilising over 100 years of experience and using the Bavarian Forest's native roots and herbs we created GRANIT Bavarian Gin. It combines the distillery's traditional skills with the modern-day international market for spirits. Classic gin spices and herbs including lemon, coriander and cardamom are combined with plants native to the Bavarian Forest (such as melissa, bald-money and the gentian root) to give GRANIT its distinctive taste.
GRANIT Bavarian Gin is matured for several months in traditional earthenware vats before being filtered through granite stones of varying sizes. For this we utilise the so-called „Oxy-Esterator“. This originates from the 1960s and has taken pride of place in the Penninger Bavarian Schnaps Museum for over 20 years. This masterpiece of German engineering has been fully restored and filled with hand-cut granite stones. The granite used in the distilling process come from the historic granite cutter's town Hauzenberg, deep in the Bavarian Forest. This inspired us to name the gin GRANIT in honour of our use of local techniques and traditions. Every bottle of GRANIT comes with one of these granite stones attached. This can be placed in the freezer to cool down and be used as an ice cube. This prevents the drink from becoming watered down and is guaranteed to be a conversation starter!
