Our Gin Luum was also allowed to compete in the mixology tasting round in April 2015. Here is a short excerpt from the post:
“ Gin Luum has recently been coming to connoisseurs from Münster. Packed in a colorless and slightly conical 0.5 liter bottle, which is now typical for the category, the Luum enters the parquet floor with a memorable appearance due to the distinctive petrol-colored label with the drawing of a frogfish. Despite some new botanicals, one would like to offer a straightforward London Dry Gin. Founder Patrick Rosenberger and his partners have found a more than renowned German fruit distiller in Hubertus Vallendar , who is now responsible for the production of the distillate.
In the glass, the Gin Luum stands out with pronounced tears and exudes a very mild, clean scent. At first, clear notes of freshly cut grapefruit dominate, plus a little leather. On closer nosing, a slightly ethereal-woody component is added. In the mouth, the Luum surprises with a slight sweetness and pronounced drinkability, also due to the unusually low strength of 40%/vol. for new German gins. The citrus fruit basket is also present here, with notes of apple, pear and a clear hint of lavender blossom. Overall a great sipping gin. The Luum might be a little underpowered when used with tonic, but it makes a great addition to a fresh, summery martini.”
