Sir Edmond Gin is made in Schiedam, The Netherlands, by the distillery Herman Jansen. The family business started in 1777 and has been distilling spirits for almost more than 250 years.
The Dutch gin is infused with vanilla pods from Réunion Island, and also features juniper, cardamom, cinnamon, angelica and ginger. The gin’s name is in reference to Edmond Albius, a horticulturist.
In 2023, Sir Edmond Gin partners with Fenix Drinks in the Czech Republic. The eloquent brand shares the detailed story about its European journey in the following press release:
Sir Edmond Gin makes its way to the Czech Republic
After spreading our wings in Spain, Sir Edmond Gin’s European journey continues in Czechia with an inspiring new partnership in the beautiful Central European country known for its Art Nouveau, a rich literary history, and… absinth.
We will bring Bourbon vanilla infused goodness to new horizons and soon be found across bars and on liquor shelves. Our latest distribution partner is Fenix Drinks, a young, dynamic, fast-growing spirits importer and distributor in the Czech Republic.
Among that they offer other services such as professional guided tastings, staff training, bar management and bar design consultation and of course bar catering for events. They know how to work hard!
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
The sweetness of the vanilla comes through clearly, while its earthiness is complemented by prominent juniper and cardamom notes.
Established in leading Czech bars, restaurants and bistros
The story of Fenix Drinks started in the late 1990s when future co-founders Jan and Samer met at a bartending course organized by their school. After graduation, they started working together in a bar, where they became passionate about spirits and liquors. At the same time, they both continued their studies at the College of Hospitality Management in Prague. After this, they founded S&B Gastro Team and spent the next nine years in the spirit business.
After selling their first company, they took different career paths but stayed close. In May 2019, just in pre-covid time, they became business partners again and launched a new company called Fenix Drinks. The focus of the company is to bring interesting, authentic and transparent brands to Czech consumers. Fenix Drinks have a specific shared vision of choosing products from authentic makers that are truly passionate about their products. In the background there has to be real people with real stories, not only a good marketing bubble.
Fenix Drinks have since established themselves in leading Czech bars, restaurants and bistros. The team now consists of 11 enthusiastic colleagues covering on trade sales, marketing, social media, copywriting and graphic design.
Made with premium stainless steel grade metal.
