Tasting notes ÖGZ-Joury:

With a balance between the Alps and England to victory. "Raspberry meets pepper", ... freshness that is reminiscent of cucumber and dosed power that balances complexly between pepper, roses and herbs. The complexity also came through in the long drink.

WILLIAM MORRIS® - the brand

 

William Morris was a major architect, designer, poet and co-founder of the Arts and Crafts Movement "in England mid-19th century. According to his plans were made by John Oakley Maund from 1888 almost identical hunting villas in the Anglo-Scottish “Cottage Style” in the Alps, erected exclusively by regional master craftsmen. In Weggis on Lake Lucerne and in Schoppernau in the Bregenz Forest, in the Arlberg region.

 

In the “Villa Maund” we came across the work of William Morris. The labels of our Morris Dry Gin are a "homage" to this extraordinary character. The motif is based on an original velvet print by William Morris "The Strawberry Thieves", which was produced in his workshops in England in the 19th century. Accordingly, the label is made with a special print on velvet paper.
