Fancy a Gin, Dar­ling?

SLOW Magazine - - Editor's Choice -

It is no se­cret that there is an al­co­hol revo­lu­tion un­der way, as we see more and more ar­ti­sanal prod­ucts grac­ing our lo­cal liquor store’s shelves. Gin is no ex­cep­tion. Com­bin­ing the Ital­ian flair for la dolce vita with an un­wa­ver­ing com­mit­ment to or­ganic prin­ci­ples, the ar­rival of Bios­tilla Or­ganic Gin marks the first time a cer­ti­fied-or­ganic pre­mium gin has been avail­able on lo­cal shelves. What’s more, it’s in­tro­duc­ing lo­cal palates to the grow­ing num­ber of ar­ti­sanal gins pro­duced in Italy. The or­ganic jour­ney be­gins with the cre­ation of a neu­tral al­co­hol dis­tilled from cer­ti­fied-or­ganic wheat which is then re-dis­tilled with care­fully se­lected botan­i­cals. The re­sult is an in­trigu­ing com­plex­ity of Mediter­ranean botan­i­cals. Ex­pect a del­i­cate whis­per of ju­niper on the nose, with a palate of sweet ju­niper, cit­rus, and flo­ral notes giv­ing way to a pleas­ing hint of bit­ter­ness in a lin­ger­ing fin­ish.
