Distilled from sugar cane alcohol and with a unique blend of botanicals, this gin is rested in amburana wood casks for greater depth of flavour. The '48' refers to Lot 48 - the original plot of land in the Serra Gaúcha hills settled by the Weber family in 1824 when they first arrived in Brazil.
Appearance, taste and texture
A bright amber appearance from the gin being rested briefly in amburana casks, which also gives it a woody, floral and softly sweet flavour. It has light spicy touches and a refreshing finish marked by ginger botanicals.
How to drink
Gin is brilliant in any number of cocktails, and Weber Haus gin goes well with meats such as ribs and steak. This one is especially good in a classic martini.
Top tip from the Weber family: Amburana gin and tonic served alongside a steak dusted with flour, and served with grilled onion and chimichurri sauce.
The perfect cocktail
The bartender’s favourite, the negroni, is given a lift with the extra
flavour complexity of this particular gin. A great drink made even greater!
The Classic Negroni
25ml Weber Haus ‘48’ Amburana gin
25ml sweet red vermouth
Fill a tumbler with ice. Add gin, vermouth and Campari and stir well. Squeeze a twist of orange peel over the drink to release the oils and then add as a garnish.

About Weber Haus ginThe Weber family has been producing Weber Haus cachaça, rum and gin in small batches in traditional copper stills on the same farm in southern Brazil since 1848.
Weber Haus gin is gin with a difference: rather than a base of industrial grain spirit, our gin is made from Brazilian sugar cane alcohol distilled in traditional copper stills. This liquid gives the gin a clean, fresh foundation which is complemented perfectly by the local botanicals we use to create flavour.
