Can we capture the essence of the Alps and distil it into a gin?
Accompanied by this question, we wandered further through the mountain world of the Ticino. The answer is in our TiGinEau. Together with selected wild herbs: yarrow, larch twigs, wild mountain thyme and juniper from the Ticino mountains. Collected by hand and distilled in small batches to create this essence.
We bottle this gin unfiltered so that you can enjoy the full range of essential oils. Completely unfiltered. That's why the TiGinEau can be slightly cloudy or become cloudy again when you chill it. A quality feature that stands for a high content of essential oils and thus for a lot of flavour.
Other Larix & Achillea’s products
We are Nadine and Christian. Together we run our company Larix & Achillea KlG in the city of Zurich at the foot of the Üetliberg. This is where we lay the foundation for our various gins, which are produced by us purely by hand and in very small batches. Every single bottle is filled, labelled and then sealed by hand. We produce small batches of gin in our spare time with love and passion.
Our passion for gin includes not only collecting wild herbs, but also putting together tasty recipes that always follow the path of our philosophies and inspirations. That is why we have not dedicated ourselves to a single gin. In addition to Fibonacci n-1, we have our TiGinEau with juniper and wild herbs from the Ticino mountains, as well as the barrel-aged Fibonacci n-1 Muscat Barrique. And we are working on other seasonal recipes.
We attach great importance to high-quality raw materials for the production of our gins and use certified organic potable alcohol for the maceration. Most of our botanicals come from organic cultivation, some from wild collection and a few from our own garden.
We deliberately do not filter our gins because we want to preserve the diversity of natural flavours in them. Due to the high content of essential oils, our gins can therefore show a slight cloudiness (Louche effect), which is more pronounced at low temperatures.
To allow the gin to settle after distillation, we let it mature for a few months before bottling.
