OUR STORY

Background for website.jpg

Cristallo Di Luna gins, welcome nature’s purest sources in a transcendent search for the extraordinary.

Entering the world of the wonderous, a magnetic clash of two worlds, as the mystical meets herbal alchemy.

Now, you may be thinking, “but what does this have to do with gin?” and well… we do not blame you! We revel in all things spiritual, from complementary therapies to herbal medicine, working with the energy of the lunar phases and crystals. Mixed with another of our loves in life (gin, of course!), we decided it was time to bring it all together, in one melting pot of the weird and wonderful. A concoction of raw, natural elements, we did not know what to expect.

And as you may have guessed, the results were breath-taking in the most literal sense. Not only did the crystals magnetise to the methodically selected botanicals, but the taste was divine, unlike any other gin. Exceptional quality, with crystal clear clarity and smoothness, it makes for a mouth-watering sensation, even just poured neat over ice.

And so, it began! Our passion project morphed into a dream and led us to an artisan distiller who took our taste ideas, crystals and lunar phases and created the gin we had created in our mind's eye.

We aim to replicate the ethereal sensation as your gaze meets the moon on a cloudless night and your stresses fade away. A reviving affair, from the moment you open your crystal elixir gin and enjoy the diversity of contrasting flavours stemming from ancient traditions and folklore alike.

Crystal Gin. An inviting allure, where the possibility of a little magic is never far away.....

Distillation and tradition

Gin production can be traced back to 11th-century Italy. It is said that Gin originated as a medicinal liquor made by Benedictine Monks who first began distilling Juniper spirits in a monastery in beautiful Salerno. Monks and Alchemists joined the quest to find the 'Aqua Vita', meaning water of life.

Long before Gin originated as a medicinal substance, crystals were used in medicinal potions for their healing properties. Not only have emperors and royalty adorned themselves with crystals for protection and status throughout the ages, the first reference of the use of crystals in medicinal formulas dates back to the 4th millennium B.C. Crystals were (and are) also used for healing in traditional medicine, which dates back to at least 5000 years. 

In our first collection of Crystal Gins we use Rose Quartz, the heart stone, which has been used as a love token as early as 600B.C. and is still an important talisman of relationships. 

The result of our gins being distilled with the powerful crystal elixir, pure water infused with crystals, a touch of magic is added to each of our gins.

Distilled in the Roman city of York, or Eboracum as it was then known, you can expect a pioneering formula as the stars align. Immersed in water and left to charge by the moonlight as it lights up the old fortress, the distilling process begins, solidifying the perfect gin before a single drop meets your lips.

mystical meets herbal alchemy

A mashup of two worlds, colliding while sparks fly. When mysticism meets herbal alchemy, an ancient art of creating a botanical remedy using alchemical principles. A mix of lunar healing energies and alchemy, using natural processes to evolve and grow, Cristallo Di Luna harnesses the evolution of a substance to its highest state of being. An evolution which is enshrined within the Roman Empire, with a yearning to adapt, which our gin embodies.

The beauty of mysticism is that it is individual. Is it the moon, the crystals, the elemental infusions? Or is it a magical tandem of all the components we have used?

Our quirks, individuality and experiences determine how we view and interpret mystical beauty, but one thing is for certain. Our exemplary blend of premium ingredients and peculiar flavours tantalise all taste buds. An experience of being magnificently different.
