Gin Sul

Cacilheiros with saudade

The Hamburg gin, which is distilled in the Altonaer Spirituosen Manufaktur, has been bridging the gap between Hamburg and Portugal since 2013. The scent of the south is preserved in the typical white stoneware bottles. The bottle features a class vessel, calling to mind the six HADAG ferries that have linked Lisbon with the town of Cacilhas as "Cacilheiros" on the Tagus since the end of the seventies. At the sight of the pretty, old ships, the "Saudade" comes over you, this traditional Portuguese feeling of longing, melancholy and gate-to-the-world pain that overcomes even the staunchest among us when we gaze at the horizon. GIN SUL has been the proud sponsor of Kirchdorf, the last type ship in the service of HADAG, since 2020.
