Distillers Note:

Our Gin tells this embrace between two long-established traditions: Gin, the international one and Genepy, the local one. It is an Alpine interpretation of a historic drink, with roots so far from our mountains.

That’s why we chose the most part of the botanicals in our territory.

Main botanicals

Juniper berries Juniperus communis
Genepy flowers Artemisia mutellina
Elderberries Sambucus nigra
Mountain pine needles Pinus mugo
Acacia flowers Robinia pseudoacacia
Vanilla pods Vanilla Planifolia
Apricot kernels Prunus armeniaca
Caraway seeds Carum carvi
Coriander seeds Coriandrum sativum
Cubeb berries Piper cubeba

Gin, naturally, revolves around juniper: the ripe berries, picked by hand, come from wild bushes grown on the sunny side of our valleys. Their flavour reflects the unicity of the Maritime Alps, where perfumes and aromas from the nearby Mediterranean sea are concentrated, before the harvest, by the first mountain cold. Then there are the balsamic and herbal notes of coriander, caraway seeds and pine needles and the sweet notes of almond, elderberries, apricot kernels and acacia flowers. To warm it all, the exotic notes of vanilla and cubeb berries. Finally, to mark the flavour profile and underline the origins of our gin, we add the local Genepy, a breathe of Alpine freshness.

Gin production is made through the Cold Compounding technique, using 10 main botanicals and premium alcohol, distilled in a 5-column still from the fermentation of first quality Italian wheat. Every essence is obtained separatedly by infusion in an hydroalcooholic bath, then they are mixed together.

The Genepy extraction is made through a particular technique, called “suspension”: in this case the small Genepy flowers are not immersed in a hydroalcoholic solution, but are placed on special racks that are suspended above the solution itself. Everything takes place in airtight containers so that, while evaporating, the alcohol only extracts the aromatic elements, leaving out the bitter components and the colouring: the result is colourless, similar to a distillate. This process, which takes six months to be completed, could be defined as a slow “cold distillation”. When all the components have been blended, begins the aging in tanks followed by the bottling. The lack of filtering ensures the homogeneity and unicity of our Genepy Gin.

Very perfumed and fresh as a classic Gin Tonic, our gin is suitable for every kind of cocktail experiment. It is great when drunk plain or with ice, as a digestive drink.
