SAILOR KNUT HANSEN WAS AN ADVENTURER WHO SET OUT TO DISCOVER THE MOST HIDDEN TREASURES OF THIS WORLD.
This is exactly the spirit in which the TOGETHERNESS Edition stands. Last year we went to different corners of the world and found various botanical treasures around the globe. Whether cherry blossoms from Japan or meadowsweet from Denmark – the botanical palette of this world is almost endless and incredibly multifaceted.
The “world” idea was born in the spring of 2019 in Africa. After many discussions with our local experts on site about Cape Town’s fynbos and Kenya’s plant kingdom, we spent nights discussing whether it would be possible to bundle different botanicals from different areas of the world in a single boiler. In the end, several bottles of KNUT were empty and the idea was finally decided!
20 Countries - 20 Botanicals
TOGETHERNESS AT ITS BEST
DIE AUFREGENDSTEN KULTUREN, DIE BUNTESTEN MÄRKTE UND UNS UNBEKANNTE BOTANICALS: ALL DAS SPIEGELT SICH IN DEM EINZIGARTIGEN GESCHMACK UNSERER SONDEREDITION 2020 WIDER.
Our TOGETHERNESS Edition contains 20 ingredients from 20 countries or 5 continents – harmonized, distilled and held in the finest whiskey barrels in our distillery in Hamburg.
And one thing is certain: It was definitely the most exciting gin experiment of our life. We would like to thank all the experts around the world who advised us on this project and taught us their culture and flora. Without you this edition would not have been possible! Something very special can only come about together, in 2020 more than ever …
By the way: The TOGETHERNESS Edition is named after this year’s motto of the Millerntor Gallery, our godfather of this year’s edition. The Millerntor Gallery stands for TOGETHERNESS like hardly any other organization in Germany. A part of the sales of this edition goes to the projects of the Millerntor Galery.

TRUST IS PART OF THE ART
AS DETAIL-ORIENTED THE MIXTURE OF THIS EDITION WAS PLANNED, THE ART THAT DECORATES THE FRONT OF THE BOTTLE IS AS FREE.
The TOGETHERNESS Edition is a gin experiment and bottle work of art at the same time. So we are more than proud that we were able to win one of the most wonderful Hamburg artists for this project: the great Jules Wenzel.
