11 botanicals that are a mix of the usual suspects but in some way this gin gives off an air of chocolate and coffee towards the finish. But once mixed with tonic, this gin truly came to life. The main botanicals are said to be juniper, lavender, lemon peel, coriander and cinnamon, but I would love to know what else is hidden inside that bottle. There is a great air of complexity that wafts from the glass and the balance really is perfect. It is housed within a beautiful bottle which shows two sides of a heart split between the front and the back.

The story of Broken Heart Gin begins with two Germans living in New Zealand's Southern Alps, Joerg was a pilot and Bernd an engineer. Both philosophers and committed Master Distillers, they formed their friendship around a still and a passion for perfecting spirits of rare complexity and flavours.

Those were the glory days and nothing captured the flavour of that time better than the inspiration Bernd and Joerg shared to create a superb gin - an intricate balance of eleven botanicals - and surprisingly good with a twist of orange. It became a ritual, one a day at dusk, as day tumed to night, the taste of the time of in-between...

But life is no straight line. Bernd fell gravely ill, fought bravely, then sadly died. Where once had been a life that felt like it would go on forever, now were broken hearts. As Joerg travelled down the healing road, he realised that as much as a broken heart hurts, it's also a space to be filled with new beginnings. Like a gin at dusk, a moment of in-between. And so he decided to share the superb gin with the world and to call it Broken Heart for him.
