Turmeric sets the tone, red pepper and juniper mix strongly. Gin classics such as cardamom and coriander, but also cinnamon blossoms and bittersweet almonds combine to form a special gin. The altogether 15 Botanicals are burned in small batches, by hand and with a lot of love...

THE HEAD BEHIND LUV&LEE
Another new gin? Another new gin from Hamburg? Does that make sense?
These were the questions the head behind LUV&LEE, Christian Heck, had to face when the first ideas for a genuine North German gin slowly took shape. As a connoisseur of spirits with more than 25 years of experience at Pernod Ricard, he was able to answer them all with a convincing "yes". Because LUV&LEE is different. We not only have LUV&LEE Hanseatic Dry Gin on it, we also have Hanseatic on it.
For a long time Christian had wondered why there isn't one with typical North German botanicals between the different Hamburg gins. And he found it: That must change!
LUV&LEE HANSEATIC DRY GIN
The birth idea of LUV&LEE lies in the love of the north and gin. Besides the classic gin botanicals like juniper and coriander, LUV&LEE comes up with a note that could hardly be more Nordic: the aquavit. True northern lights immediately recognize the typical star anise and caraway notes of the Nordic aqua vitae, which give LUV&LEE one of its unique selling points.
But what would a Hanseatic Gin be without the feeling of standing directly at the water edge and letting the salty wind blow into your face? It is precisely this final piece of north that LUV&LEE provides with a pinch of Sylt sea salt crystals, which gives our genuine North German gin its final touch.
LUV&LEE Hanseatic Dry Gin is best enjoyed with a fresh breeze of sea wind around your nose and served in a North German uncomplicated way: Pure, on ice or with a light, mild tonic, which does not overlay the independent taste profile. If you don't want to do without some bells and whistles, pour a scoop of watermelon or dried lemon slices into the glass and pour on the tonic. A stalk of lemongrass or some North German seaweed is also suitable for decoration and light flavouring.
In order to turn LUV&LEE with all these components into a real northern light, Christian Heck has teamed up with experts from Hamburg's oldest spirits manufacturer. The Have family business has been producing fine spirits in small batches since 1868 and is a long-established Hamburg company from the ground up in northern Germany.
After Christian Manufakturchef Christoph von Have was convinced of his idea for LUV&LEE, the weighting of the various flavours and the overall composition was worked on with loving attention to detail. The two have succeeded so well that LUV&LEE has already been awarded the gold medal of the ISW International Spirits Competition as soon as the first bottles were filled. LUV&LEE also got off to a very successful start in 2018: our unique Hanseatic Dry Gin received double the gold medal at the China Wine & Spirits Awards.
The prize-winning result, our Hanseatic Dry Gin, is a breath of fresh air in the glass and the best reason to be surprised that you can still be surprised by a new gin.
Yuka and Hauke (Stadtrand & Co. GmbH) are a yoga teacher and biologist, so we are probably not the typical newcomers to gin. However, we are united by our curiosity and passion for new and unusual things, and so a good year ago we dedicated ourselves to distilling an unusual gin. In addition to juniper, we distil turmeric and red pepper as tone-setting elements, as well as some other botanicals such as bittersweet almonds and coniferous wood. Starting in the home kitchen, we then hatched the plan to distil the first batch of around 250 bottles with a small country distillery in the north in spring 2018.
We ended up with two gins, like brother and sister or pretty good friends. First a London Dry, the Tumeric Raw Gin, which impresses with its clear and edgy structure. Complex and multi-layered, well spiced and full of surprises. From this we then create a second, the Tumeric No.1, which as a New Western Gin is very complex and deep in its aroma structure... and golden yellow in colour.
Gin is our passion. The project of making a gin is something more. We want to break out of our daily routine a bit, create something that goes beyond our comfort zone. In the medium term, we plan to no longer source our botanicals for the "Hamburg-Zanzibar" gin in Germany, but through local small farmers, for example in Zanzibar. We want to involve local ́s in our project to create added value for everyone. Not in the sense of a pumped-up "charity concept" but as a fair and sustainable relationship with the people who really earn their living with the cultivation of the individual botanicals.
