Become a part of our history ...
nginious! was born on July 31, 2014. The original idea of creating a Swiss gin of the highest quality (which became a reality with the ‘Swiss Blended Gin’), soon developed into concept of exploring new avenues and reinterpreting a depleted spirit category in an exiting and surprising different way.
Our own distillery gives us the independence and flexibility that we need to be creative and innovative, it creates Identity and opens up new horizons. We will be able to welcome guests, have master classes, show where and how we work, but most of all we can toy around and experiment.
The principle of this crowd funding is advance sale. This way we hope to finance the planning, building, equipment and furnishing of the distillery in order to realize our ideas for the new plant. Therefore we are offering and selling our products right now but plan to deliver in 2017.
The signing of the rental contract means that the distillery will come into existence anyway, but the better and faster our advance sales are and the more support we receive, the better we can implement our plans.
Our distillery is not only a place for development and production, but also for connecting and communication with our enthusiasts. We will return something to all those who have supported us and the distillery, something unique and everlasting.
nginious! Distiller’s Cut0 x
The centrepiece of our crowd funding campaign. The very first production in our new Liquid Spirit Distillery: limited to 3.000 bottles, each custom-made & numbered. ‘Be nginious!’ and become a part of our history …
The very first production coming from our new distillery: The most personal of all nginious! creations
This special edition gin will come in custom-made magnum sized bottle (1.5 litres) limited to 3.000 pieces. The bottles will be covered in the typical nginious! jacket, but in this case made of copper to fit the occasion.
All bottles will be engraved with a number from 1-3.000, and every supporter can choose their own number – if it is still available. Each bottle will then be customized by engraving the purchaser’s name.
However, the truly ‘nginious!’ and unique part is that the name of each purchaser, along with their number(s), will be engraved on the still itself, becoming an eternal part of Liquid Spirit Distillery’s history. In summary, each contributor will have a customised bottle of a limited edition gin (that may become worth a multiple of the present price) and will always be connected to us and the project. We think this is a great idea.
Delivery date: 31st October 2017

We turn the gin world
The Swiss Blended Gin was followed by the world’s first barrel aged gin in a vermouth cask, the casks being supplied by the famous Piedmont vermouth producer ‘Cocchi’.
Only nine months later spring and summer were announced by the introduction of nginious! Summer Gin. Consisting of a completely new recipe, it soon became everyone’s favourite tipple.
In October 2015, our ‘Smoked & Salted Gin’ was launched, ready for arrival of the autumn / winter season. This was a totally new sort of gin; a most unusual and unexpected gin.
nginious! creates curiosity,
demand and innovative products
Ever since ‘Smoked and Salted’ entered the market, it has become evident where the journey will lead: the drawer is full of ideas and the well of lost plots hasn’t been exhausted. The existing four editions are the core range of nginious! and further ingenious ideas are waiting to be developed and published!
We believe that the magic of our brand lies in the ability to continuously push people’s expectations to new limits and to maintain their excitement and curiosity. Everyone has their own favourite nginious! edition: one loves the lightness of the Summer Gin while others appreciate the complexity of the Swiss Blended Gin. The explosion of flavours makes the Smoked & Salted Gin the bartender’s choice whilst others muse about the elegance of the Cocchi Vermouth Cask Finished Gin.
However, despite the diversity of our gins, the magic of nginious! is the excitement of what is yet to come. We are not competing our gins among each other; instead we will expand the range of the nginious! universe to add a new chapter and continue creating our story.
We, more than anyone else, feel the tingling sensation every time a new idea is born and there is a new product we think is worth creating. It is the same magic we felt when the first gin was created, and it hasn’t faded. For us nginious! will never be routine. We will always challenge ourselves, setting high demands and aiming to discover new secrets in order to say: ‘Yes, it’s another nginious! idea.’
We feel the moment has come to give our brand a home of its own: a distillery, called …
Every Bottle and the contentsare
unique at nginious!
Following the unrivalled concept of a hip flask as a basic bottle, each variety of nginious! gets its unique design in the form of a special jacket
While the neat bottle for the Swiss Blended Gin reflects the purity of the content, the Cocchi Vermouth Cask Finished Gin gets a new leather design every time a new barrel is being aged and thus also becomes a collector’s item. The concept of Summer is not only IN the Summer Gin but also ON the bottle, using old school bubble swim caps as jackets that are both super cool and unique. And finally there is the flamed oak wood jacket for the Smoked & Salted Gin, making each bottle one of a kind.
Each bottle of nginious! is distinctive and unparalleled.
Give your brand a home.
After a long search we found the perfect site for our project: the Aktienmühle (aktienmuehle.ch). For108 years this site was a flourmill and an important chapter of Basel’s industrial history, until its closure in 2003.
After being purchased by the Habitat Foundation in 2015, the mill will now be used in an entirely different way. The building will host an array of little manufactures like coffee roasters, a wood-fired bakery, a sculpture studio and our very own distillery.These 200 sqm are more to us than just a room. They mean identity, independence and future.
Thank you for supporting our project.
We are looking forward to the next year; it is going to be so exciting.
