Distilled in the heart of Zurich, Turicum Gin is crafted in small batches.
The London dry label guarantees our unique flavor which is obtained through the re-distillation in traditional stills in the presence of all natural ingredients and water, with no additional sweetening.
,,A crystal-clear gin with aromatic and exotic notes. Flavors of lavender, pepper, passion fruit and apricot create a pleasant and warm experience. Smoothness is added through a slightly oxidative note of ripe Williams pears. The palate initially experiences a light sweetness, followed by a titillating chili pungency, which gently caresses the tongue. The lasting final note is reminiscent of licorice, cinnamon and white pepper."

It all started in June 2013, when Merlin Kofler and Oliver Honegger (our executive directors) visited English gin distilleries. Inspired by the craftsmanship, they decided to produce their own gin. With the help of their friends, Philip Angst and Oscar Martin, it took the team no longer than two years to make their dream come true.
Our goal was to create a gin that represents Zurich’s spirit and that caters to the locals’ taste. What started as an adventure of friends has become a popular spirit – far beyond the Zurich city limits.
Today, Turicum Gin is available in selected liquor stores and bars in Switzerland and Germany. The expansion in other countries is currently being planned
