Something about Henkell & Co. Sektkellerei KG
Henkell is a traditional German company that produces not only gin, but also wine, different spirits and sparkling wine. With many famous and iconic German spirits, the most famous probably being Wodka Gorbatschow, it was past time that Henkell produced a gin to have in their collection of fine spirits.
The highly successful company, which sells its spirits and wines in over 150 countries now, was founded in 1832 by Adam Henkell, one of the first Germans to produce sparkling wine. Henkell always had its place in the Main-Rhein region, first in Mainz, then in Biebrich, finally in Wiesbaden.
Their first gin, Schloss Gin is an homage to the Schloss Johannisberg (Johannisberg Castle), also located in the Rhein-Main region and therefore a perfect fit for the old, traditional brand. Henkell has won numerous prices, among them the Austrian award for “Most Trusted Brand” and is a global market leader.
