Amber Beverage Group unlocks the taste of the Baltics with Cross Keys Gin®

A novel flavour experience of Baltic summer blossoms and fresh juniper spirit is distilled to its essence in Amber Beverage Group’s (ABG) latest creation – Cross Keys Gin®. The latest ABG masterpiece will be launched in the UK, Russia, Australia, Italy, as well as the Baltic States.


For centuries Latvians have mastered the art of crafting spirits, a journey that started with the famous Herbal Bitter Riga Black Balsam®– an alchemic masterpiece from 1752. Now Amber Beverage Group’s master distiller with 43 years of experience has achieved a marvelous feat by developing Cross Keys Gin®, with a taste to represent the true spirit of the Baltic States.


“This gin is different. With its palette of northern summer flavours, Cross Keys Gin® pleases with a rather complex taste ready for uncomplicated enjoyment – it is great on rocks, with tonic water, or as a key player in classical cocktails. Not requiring complicated recipes, Cross Keys Gin® will complement classic cocktails as no other gin,” says Cobus van Rooijen, Amber Beverage Group Marketing and Sales Director. “The unique aroma and structure of Cross Keys Gin® is based on the symmetric interplay of four key ingredients: chamomile, linden blossoms, rosemary, and juniper. This authentic recipe requires great care, therefore Cross Keys Gin® is locally handcrafted in small batches,” van Rooijen explained.


Cross Keys Gin® stands out among others in a black natural clay bottle that enhances the ageing process of gin. The chiselled pearl-like bottle design includes 3D varnish decoration on the body and a label with two colour bronze foil.
