Where we're from
Lahhentagge Gin comes from a land where the summers are warm and the winters are dark. Where tall forests cast long shadows over blooming pastures, and craggy juniper trees stand afoot fields of wind-licked wild grasses. Where endless stony beaches meet a swirling sea that brings winds and wild birds from distant lands. This is the island of Ösel in the northern Baltic Sea.
Our Estonian gin takes its name from the village of Lahhentagge, birthplace of the great explorer Fabian Gottlieb von Bellingshausen (1778–1852). Bellingshausen discovered Antarctica and was the first Russian to circumnavigate the Earth. His achievements reflect the character of the Öselian people. Like their Viking forebears, they have never been afraid to take their feisty northern spirit to the seas.
