When a top Berlin chef asks if you’re planning to produce a spirit made from dill, that’s the perfect motivation for starting product development. The first question was what raw material to use, because either dill weed or its seeds can be used. In this case, we relied on our nose and on science: the fresh herb has subtler notes, due to the various stages of ripening of the dill. Once it has flowered, when the seeds start to ripen, the proportion of (S)-(+)-carvone in the essential oil increases. This is responsible for the characteristic aroma of caraway oil. It overshadows other flavour components, such as limonene, a- and b-phellandrene and 3,6‐dimethyl‐2,3,3a, 4,5,7a‐hexahydrobenzofuran (also called dill ether, responsible for the typical dill smell and key aroma). The secret of success lies in harvesting the dill at just the right moment. Further processing also has to be performed with care and skill. This is the only way to capture the potent, fresh, sweet spicy, peppery and aromatic smell in our spirit, with its undertones that are reminiscent of spearmint and nutmeg. We’re curious to find out what our special customer’s illustrious guests will think of the pickled fish he’s planning to make with the spirit. We’re also eager to discover its many other potential uses, both in the kitchen and in cocktails. There should be no shortage of ideas: dill has been used as a medicinal and aromatic plant since the time of the Egyptians.
