MOUNTAIN HUB DISTILLERS

@ Hilton Munich Airport

Indulgence based on Bavarian tradition and the modern art of distilling
Indulgence based on Bavarian tradition and the modern art of distilling

The Mountain Hub Distillers is an alliance between Mountain Hub and the airport-based Airbräu brewery. The primary raw material used here is beer. It is meticulously transformed by hand into truly unique distillates.

The essence of taste
Gin from beer.
Can it be done?
Gin from beer.
Can it be done?

No! Or rather yes – you just can’t call it ‘gin’! But they do have one thing in common: the best quality wheat and pure water. In order to save 4,000 litres of Airbräu beer from being wasted during lockdown, processing it using gin-making techniques was considered a legitimate cause. And so something completely new was created: the Infused Beer Spirit from the Mountain Hub Distillers.

Honest. Home-made. Responsible.
The spirit of the times

Sometimes there are situations which turn even the best sustainability concepts upside down. Like the 2020 lockdown. One challenge this presented for the catering industry was having to save food from going to waste at short notice.

Master brewer René Jacobsen of the Airbräu brewery at Munich airport was seeking a solution to save the high-quality beer he had produced. And what could make more sense than to transform it into a strong beer distillate. Teaming up as part of a collaborative process, passion and dedication were applied to convert 4,000 litres of Airbräu lager beer into the exclusive ‘Infused Beer Spirit’ made by the Mountain Hub Distillers.

Try it for yourself and you are sure to become a fan: the Mountain Hub Distillers ‘Infused’ is a limited edition distillate based on gin-making methods and enriched with juniper and high-quality botanicals.

Quint-essence. Straight or mixed. Simply ‘gin-style’.

DON'T CALL IT GIN.
LET'S TRY.
DON'T CALL IT GIN.

4,000 litres of exquisite Airbräu beer made their way to Langenpreising to the Edelobstbrennerei Huber distillery where it was distilled using gin-making techniques. All refined with high-quality botanicals and then distilled again. This unique fine brandy – the Infused Beer Spirit – is then bottled by hand, ready for sampling. You can try it for yourself at the Mountain Hub Restaurants, at the bar of the Hilton Munich Airport or at the Airbräu brewery at Munich airport. The limited edition distillate comes in bottles of 500 ml or 200 ml and can also be purchased to enjoy at home or as an exclusive souvenir of your trip to Munich.

INDULGENCE AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL
INDULGENCE AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL

By distilling the beer and then distilling it again with selected botanicals, an intensive and aromatic ‘Infused Beer Spirit’ was created with a unique flavour which can easily hold its own against a good gin. Our beer brandy both reflects the rustic Airbräu atmosphere and transports you elegantly into the Mountain Hub world of flavour.

I am so pleased that the rescue campaign resulted in such an impressive distillate!

Cheers!

BAVARIAN. POWERFUL. UNIQUE.
NO MAINSTREAM

Mountain Hub represents a wide range of high-quality ingredients. And of course, the same holds true for Distillers. Selected botanicals such as juniper, spruce needles, bloodroot and pine shoots are adapted to one another and form the basis for this unique flavour. This configuration gave rise to a spirit, the likes of which have never been seen before.

Whether straight or with tonic, the Infused Beer Spirit impresses with its unique character, winning over both gin connoisseurs and newcomers alike.
May we share a little secret with you? Some very special surprises are maturing in some exceptional locations – in exquisite oak casks and at high altitude. We are looking forward to being able to serve them to you at the Mountain Hub Restaurants, Hilton Bar and Airbräu brewery.

Mountain Hub Distillers. Unique. Bavarian local quality.

EXCELLENT

In 2022 the Infused Beer Spirit was awarded with a silver medal by Meininger’s International Spirits Award in the category “Spirits from beer”. He has mastered the strict guidelines of the examiners very well.

Our philosophy is also reflected in the Mountain Hub Distillers mugs – regionality and high-quality craftsmanship.

The mugs were handcrafted by Annika Schüler, a master ceramist from Munich. Each unique piece of stoneware clay was hand-turned and has an individual numbering. They were burned at 1,240 degrees and decorated with a white glaze in some places. This makes the mugs dishwasher safe.

The Mountain Hub Distillers Gift Box consists of a mug and a bottle of Infused Bierbrand 500 ml. Both inserted in a wooden box decorated with the Mountain Hub Distillers logo with golden clasp.
