Welcome to the fabulous Gin.Show, hosted by Jan and other co-hosts.This podcast is a manifestation of our love for gin and the science, history, stories, and craft behind gin in general and the ones we look at in particular. Join us when we interview distillers, bartenders, and people from the gin industry to learn and get entertained.

Want to be on the show? Yes, please!

We would love to talk to you if you are a gin something. A distiller? Great! A bartender with a gin focus or just love and passion for gin? Bring it on! A botanist? Tell us all about the great things one could distill! A spirits company telling us more about the industry? Or a public relations person with industry insights? Wow, we are stoked to learn more.

High quality and preparation

We have prepared all the information for you to get ready for the show on a knowledge base page. It is important to be well prepared in order to get a great quality recording for the gin show! Well, that's why we tried to make it as simple as possible for you.

When you do not need to be in touch …

You are someone buying cheap alcohol, chucking in some weird seldomly used botanicals, whipping up a fluffy marketing story and growing your audience with obnoxious social media tactics? Yeah, well, we are afraid that boat has sailed and and will never reach our shores. We would love to direct you to the the big-bogus-gin-marketing-podcast. Just google it. They said they are happy to have you.

More gin? Really?

The gin hype is real! The gin bubble will burst! What is the next thing beyond gin? A lot of statements and many opinions. But beside these there is a lot more to be discussed when it comes to gin and the many things related to its production, marketing, the use in drinks, and even the pure knowledge about it. And that is where this podcast wants to pick up the thread: My name is Jan Persiel. I run a gin blog over on gingingin.de and post almost daily on instagram as @ginginginahoi. The podcast lives over on Instagram as well as @thefabulousginshow. Check in for conversations over there or send an email.

The birth of this gin podcast

Belinda @thepatronsaintofgin from the Australian Gold Coast and I had many discussions about gin and she motivated me to start the podcast. And I hope to have our conversations about gin in public and leverage our connections to producers, distillers, and other gin lovers to make this an entertaining podcast about gin. In short: I hope to have her on the show as a co-host at some point in time.


Absolutely valued: your feedback

The fact that you feel like giving us feedback is an honour. It means something to us if you feel like telling us what we could improve. It is something we cannot do just by ourselves. Getting feedback is a gift and the time you spend doing so is anything but lost.

Please take one thing into consideration: I love making things better, tailoring things more to the audience in terms of making things more understandable, entertaining, heck just better. But I can only do that with constructive feedback. What does that mean?

Types of feedback

You are hard to understand because there is a lot of reverb in the audio.

– Awesome. We can try recording in a better room or get a better mic and filters. Thanks, really helping.

What was this ethanol boiling thing all about? Can you explain that again?

– Wow, great feedback. We might have been too deep down the rabbit hole this time. Probably we won't write you a summary but maybe get another episode made with simpler explanations.

Your podcast is the worst! You are so ^@*#

– I recommend you visit a good therapist to help you deal with your anger management.


The same applies to reviews on iTunes or other platforms. Be considerate and send some love. I put a lot of work into this. So think twice whether you really mean what you are writing. If you do love the podcast, I am deeply in love with you as well :)
