For me, its so awesome that people from my hometown have the courage to just give the f... and start a new brand! As a YES man I support these guys 100%.
During my bartending years, followed by years working as brand ambassador in the industry, I have been fortunate to visit numerous distilleries throughout the world. I have always taken interest in the story behind the brands, and how the ingredients and production method influence the taste of the product.
For many years I was distilling all kinds of flowers and roots in my own kitchen, mostly during the night when my family were sleeping. My mental library now contains the scent, taste and mouthfeel of all these distills. From this, I have managed to create the gin that I love to drink.
Bareksten GIN has won double-gold medal in San Francisco and makes with out doubt the worlds best gin.
