MAKING
THE GIN

the juniper berries

Picked only in select areas of the Apennines of Tuscany, the juniper berries are infused in 65% pure wheat alcohol and then distilled in a discontinuous vacuum alembic still to preserve even the most delicate of its aromas.

the botanicals of the art

Calamint
Safflower
Mignonette
Rubia
Indigo

These rare and precious botanicals are infused separately in 55% pure wheat alcohol and then distilled, separately, in a small, non-vacuum, discontinuous alembic still.

the other botanicals

Wild celery
Lavender
Hibiscus
Elderflower
Pine buds
Mountain pine
Pine needles

These plants are infused, all together, in 55% pure wheat alcohol. The resulting infusion is then distilled in a small, non-vacuum discontinuous alembic still.

THE FINISHING TOUCH

The distillates of the three infusions are then blended together and left to rest for a few days, after which ultra-pure water of glacial origin is added to bring the alcohol content to 44%. It is then passed through low-temperature (-7°C) filters made of very pure cellulose that hold back any oily particles that may have remained in the mixture. Ginarte is now ready to be bottled.
