Knut Hansen. Above all, Artisan Gin distilled and handcrafted in Hamburg, Germany, by Kaspar Hagedorn and Martin Spieker. Started as an idea over a couple of beers on a night out in Hamburg. Subsequently, now a great and successful business for the two friends.
The first batch was produced in 2017 in a friend’s distillery. In 2019 Martin and Kaspar opened their own distillery in Hamburg.
Local Hamburg gin drinkers can take their Knut Hansen Stoneware bottles to the Distillery and have them refilled. All bottles are filled by hand. Certainly, Knut Hansen is one of the few gins to be distilled in two Continents; Hamburg in Germany and Cape Town in South Africa.
