G+-London Dry – the beginning
The G+-London Dry was the first Gin of our G+-Gin-line. It was also the first London Dry Gin of Styria and its development was a spontaneous decision. The conception was to produce a straight Gin with dominating juniper flavour along with discreet citrus and flowery notes. Our aim was to create a powerful Gin with a clean fresh taste.
We seem to have achieved our objective in this respects as at the first international tasting we participated in was a sensational success. This was the San Francisco World Spirits Competition – the “Who’s Who” of world Gin Producers in 2015. Out of 121 Gins only 10 products were awarded with a double gold medal and one of them was our very own Gin.
Drink it neat or with a mixer – either way, it is a real hit. Whatever the mixer, the characteristic flavour carries through to a satisfying conclusion.

GIN+-POWER FLOWER- a flowery sonnet
A special edition of our G+-Gin-line, that introduces itself in a very floral way. The subtle juniper flavour supports the flowery notes to create a unique taste in our range. Fine fragrance of lavender combined with violet and chamomile adds something extravagant to the Diva of our Gin range. We say it is extravagant because the flavour may not be for everyone. Definitely one for floral enthusiasts with its complex flavour and aromatic structures. For all others it may stay a forsaken mystery!

Taste: powerful, compact, especially violet, mild, ongoing length, very harmonious…
OAK CASK – SPECIAL EDITION
Like this gin in an oak barrel, the recipe has also matured. The juniper should not over power. The dominant character of this gin should be citrusy, fruity and spicy with complimenting vanilla and oak notes.
Therefore, the main ingredients of this gin are juniper, mandarins and cardamom. It is subsequently aged several months in a barrel previously used for rum.
The double plus on the label is due to the fact that the alcohol concentration (50 %vol.) – like our Anise – is significantly higher. Drunk neat, the oak cask gin is pure pleasure. However, it also delights when mixed with Tonic, as then all of the hidden nuances of the mix come into play.
AROMA: Dominant mandarin, vanilla, discreet juniper, spicy cardamom.
FLAVOUR: Reflective of the aroma, whereby the juniper comes through more than in the aroma, with a long finish primarily dominated by mandarin peel and vanilla.
G+-SAFFRON the yellow charmer
Shiny yellow and powerful in taste is how the Saffron Gin presents himself. First only a limited edition now a permanent part of our Gin range. The addition of saffron yields in way of oily taste – a little bit like maturated. He is charming the palatine and invites to enjoy him pure. Produced with saffron form Austria.
Smell: very intensive juniper, spicy saffron, a lot of freshness, clear citrus, flowery notes
Taste: oily, dense saffron, mild, spicy, refreshing, juniper, ongoing length, very harmonic, compact, tender bitter …
The production of Saffron Gin: the shiny orange-red saffron is pulled into the gin after distillation. After a several time it is filtered. Nevertheless, sometimes there is a deposit on the bottom of the bottle. It is only saffron.
A must-have for all Anise lovers. Intensive and fruity nose leads to an explosion of taste on the palatine. The subtle sweetness comes out only of the anethol from the anise seeds and is not a result of sugar addition. 50 %vol. might seem a little bit strong, but it tastes perfect pure or in a mixture with cold water or with ice cubes (it becomes immediately cloudiness).

Rum by Krauss, the First
Originally distilled from sugar-cane molasses and afterward matured in new casks made from American oak. The original sweet taste of our Rum is completed only with the sweetness released from the cask. But that’s all, no sugar is added, which differs a great deal from most of other well-known rums. It goes along with our principles that after the distillation no sugar is added to any of our distillates. Because new casks dispense to average 2 to 3 gram sugar per litre to the spirit, even with the often used sherry finishing only a few gram are added. Plenty of Rums hold a much higher amount of sugar, starting from 30 to 40 gram per litre or even more. Therefore our rum appears from the very first sip, a much more refined and satisfying drink. With or without a mixer, the unique flavour carries through.
Tradition. Even though our Distillery is quite Young, this Whiskey stands for Tradition. It is produced after the traditional principle for production of Bourbon Whiskey and uses a traditional styrian ancient corn ilk.

The apples for our apple brandy comes from our Region of Styria in Austria. The apples are pressed immediately after harvest and the restultant Juice if fermented to apple wine. Afterwards the apple wine is distilled with care. The resulting distillate develops its full force after maturation in oak casks for at least one year. Due to the higher alcoholic value of 48 %vol. our apple brandy delivers very intensive Long lasting flavour.
Our apple brandy was awarded with a gold medal in the category apple brandy at “San Francisco World Spirits Competition” in 2016.
