Who am I: Producer
Ingenuity (noun): the quality of being clever, original and inventive
WE LOVE TO STIR THINGS UP!
It all started with the quest to capture Switzerland in a Gin. The resulting fresh, clear and classic nginious! Swiss Blended Gin was the perfect debut and became the foundation for every nginious! creation to follow. The quest was rewarded, as we received the honour of ‘Best Swiss Gin’ at the Swiss Spirits Award in 2018.
Our next step into ingenuity was the creation of our nginious! Vermouth Cask Finished gin, a first of its kind creation, where we matured the nginious! Swiss Blended Gin using Barolo barrels previously used for ageing sweet red vermouth.
However, it was but the first of many visions that have come to realisation in the nginious! universe: The nginious! Summer Gin was fitted with an almost iconic swimming cap labelling, the Smoked and Salted Gin, another certified original, was the first gin to use chestnuts to create a gin that was, well, smoked and salted.
The latest creation is nginious! Colours: what you see is what you get! Six colourful gins embody their exterior colour story via the addition of three natural colour and flavour adding botanicals, thus bringing the colour to the senses.
Handcrafting starts with the heart.
That’s why every nginious! product is not only handmade with love (which we all know is the secret ingredient), but with attention to quality in every single component and every single step.
We divide the botanicals used into separate groups, distil them individually in
small batches and only blend them at the end.
Just as novel and unique as the gin creations is the idiosyncratic packaging of each nginious! edition. In the heart of Basel lies our Liquid Spirit Distillery. In the beautiful premises of a former mill the nginious! visions come to life through tireless crafting, and ultimately through the hands and hearts of Iris and Oliver. Here, not only do we manufacture the gins, but also our leather and wooden labels – from cutting to embossing. Each bottle is labelled and bottled by hand.
Each bottle of nginious! is the realisation of our vision for ingenuity in gin – from the aesthetics of our bottle design, to the very last delectable drop.
Unconventional in every way, but always true to the tradition of gin, nginious! is continuously straying far off the beaten tracks - and will continue to do so.
Heart & Soul
curiosity ambition innovation
We are Oliver and Iris Ullrich - and creative crafting is our trademark since 2014.
From the outset, we’ve gently pushed the limits of conventionalism at every turn. Our motivation for nginious! has always been the search for something that previously didn’t exist.
We believe our brand magic lies in the ability to continuously push expectations to new limits, whilst maintaining the true tradition of gin making.
The result? A portfolio of outstanding, award winning gins unrivalled in the market.
Ever tried a Smoked and Salted Gin, or seen a swimming cap gin label?
