The Story behind GOODMANS GIN
Our idea to start a new adventure was born in Key West, the southernmost point of Florida, USA.
My first visit to the Keys was in 1997 and I stayed in a small, peaceful hotel. Full of character and almost hidden in the lush tropical setting. In this little paradise all is perfect and time is ticking away at a very slow pace.
Daily at 5 o'clock in the afternoon a tiny, mobile bar was placed in the pool area so the guests could pour themselves a nice cold beverage. On offer were a wide range of softdrinks and hard liquor for the less fainthearted.
Hotel guests gathered around this little bar and soon got involved in enthusiastic and colorful conversations with each other.
We call him Joe, a world famous musician. A Hollywood make up artist and a woman that stayed at the hotel to write her 4th novel. There was a biker couple, they just drove all the way down from Alaska. A surgeon and his wife from the UK celebrating their honeymoon.
I guess you get the picture.
While mingling with my fellow travellers, talking about our lives and interests, I took some sips from my G&T and suddenly an inspiring thought came up:
"Since I am a longtime admirer and consumer of gin, wouldn't it be quite an experience to create a gin myself. A quality spirit that goes exceptionally well with almost everything you mix it up with, still has it's own character and gives you the at home feeling even when being far, far, away.
Gin with a similar heart and soul as what the Keys and the hotel are about; creativity, independence, courage and true interest in people and environment.”
Picking up on the chatting again, I got distracted and the thought evaporated.
Time went by and life goes on. Over time, my weak spot for this remarkable place turned out to be contagious and frequent revisits were made.
Finally, in 2014 the idea really sparked to life! In our home town I contacted a historic little distiller that is famous for their quality products and laid down our plan.
The vision to make an unique gin capturing our experiences became a reality and in 2014 GOODMANS GIN® saw the light.
