Bars2You were recently approached by a Swiss gin company named Ngenious! Now we know Switzerland is usually associated more with chocolate and cheese, but Ngenious! have now extended the Swiss craftsmanship to one of our favourite spirits – Gin! Ngenious! produce a variety of blended gins each containing 18 botanicals – which have been distilled in four batches and then blended together to create the Swiss Gin , which is different to the manufacturing process for a London Dry Gin, for example, where all the herbs are distilled together.
The four batches of botanicals that Ngenious! use are:
- Fruity – Juniper, Barberry and Laurel (the soul of the gin)
- Citrus – Lemon, Sweet Orange Peel and Grapefruit
- Roots – Whole peeled Cardamom and Liquorice Root
- The ‘Swiss’ Element – Bee Balm, Blackcurrant Leaves, Carline Thistle Root, Chamomile, Clover Blossom, Galingale, Hay Flowers, Hyssop, Iris, and Verbena – all of which are herbs which are native to Switzerland.
This attention to detail can be seen in all that Nginious! do, especially when you discover that they only produce 100 litres of the gin in each still to ensure they are not heating the mixture for too long, which ensures they produce the best possible extraction each time.
But what has all this got to do with Bars2You? Well, Ngenious! recently decided to promote their Swiss-blended gin at the glorious Goodwood Festival of Speed, and were working with a company who promised to supply them with 6 bar service counters to allow them to serve customers with some amazing gin & tonics. Unfortunately, four days before the festival, the other company let them down. So, they came running to Bars2You to see if we could help them out with some corporate bar hire– which, of course, we could!
As they already had the designs agreed for the bar service counters, they sent us the specs and we got straight on. We built, fabricated, sprayed and delivered the bar counters to them within the time frame agreed. To say they were over the moon is an understatement. They were so happy with the bars we provided they have offered us a three year contract to support their Goodwood contract, and asked us to produce bars for two more events – including Polo at Goodwood in August.
We look forward to a long and successful relationship with Ngenious! If you want us to help you with your next corporate event then please contact us today for a quote. You can call us on 01925 633 131 or alternatively send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
