2020: new products, new tastings

As all of you know, 2020 has been a very special year in many ways. And still there were – despite Lockdown, bar- and restaurant-closings as well as other constraints – some positive news for us. We have used this exceptional year to participate in some new tasting competitions. But not only the competitions were new to us, also the […]

Gold in San Francisco for our Sulm Valley Whiskey

We are proud to announce that our Sulm Valley Whiskey was awarded a gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. This award is particularly humbling because we have done so well with a Styrian “bourbon” in the country it’s origin (officially we cannot call it a bourbon, but the recipe corresponds to a bourbon). This special whiskey is […]

1:2, 1:4 or 1:10 – what is the perfect gin to tonic mixing ratio?

We’re often asked the question of how to mix gin and tonic correctly and the honest answer to this mystery is: “it depends”. Unfortunately, it is common in the culinary industry to serve a fixed amount of gin, usually 4cl, with 200ml tonic. This results in a mixing ratio of 1:5, but the mixing ratio recommended by the manufacturer is […]

Distillery Krauss logo plus thats the spirit

New Logo – That’s the spirit

Some of you who were paying attention have already noticed: we have a new logo! The swan is still there, but we added a new font to the word “Krauss” and added the word “DISTILLERY”. Why have we done this? Somehow we combine the old logo with our garage and with Carmen and Werner as a team of two. But […]

Mulled Gin Recipe

After the recipe successfully passed the internal tasting test, we would of course like to share it with you. You will need: 1 litre mild apple juice 4 cloves 2 cinnamon sticks 1 piece […]

4 tall, slim bottles of Danger Line Gin from the Distillery Krauss, lemons, lavender, juniper and mandarins as decoration

Redesign, Makover, Renewal – or whatever you call it these days …

In any case, as part of our corporate identity update, we have already presented our new logo and we have also given our Danger Line bottles a boost. Now it’s time for our classic gin. Until today it was called G+ London Dry Gin, which has led to countless misunderstandings. London Dry is actually not a gin name, but a […]

Continuity – WSA 2019

kɒntɪnjuːɪti Variable noun continuous connection; consistency; steady progress of something The WSA (World Spirits Award) has been a constant companion since the beginning of our work. With all the national and international tastings that already exist, it is important to filter out those that stand out for their professionalism and neutrality. Our experience has shown that not all that glitters […]

Tall, slim 500ml bottle of G+ London Dry

London Dry – what does it actually mean?

Gin has various manufacturing methods, all of which have their own names. This article is intended to clarify the different types of gin. First, however, we would like to briefly give an insight into the gin production itself. The fact that juniper is decisive for gin is now widely known, but there is a rumour that gin is actually a […]

Vermouth 700 with ice cubes in a wine glass. Slice of orange as decoration, wood as background

Vermouth – a relic from the past or a new trend?

When it comes to the current trends in the beverage trade and gastronomy, vermouth is on the rise and could become the new in-drink, especially as an aperitif. But, is this really the truth? We had many conversations lately and whenever we mentioned the word “vermouth”, we were met with astonished expressions and questions such as “Vermouth is so bitter, […]
