Bottega’s original Gin Bacur is joined by the new Green Gin The Wild, characterised by predominantly herbaceous notes.
Green Gin The Wild is a distilled dry gin, which develops an alcohol content of 40% vol. The complex bouquet is the result of the many botanicals used, including, in addition to juniper, lemon and mandarin, hemp sativa seeds, wild fennel and basil. It is produced using water from the Alps. The botanicals are left to macerate separately and for a long time in a hydro-alcoholic solution; a double distillation is then carried out, which cleanses the liquid of any undesirable odours and produces an elegant distillate with a complex bouquet.
It is a gin with an unmistakable character, whose uniqueness comes from the selection of wild plants together with the freshness and aromaticity of lemon and mandarin.
The nose is intense, with strong notes of sweet citrus and herbaceous nuances including myrtle berries, wild fennel and spring flowers. The palate is dry and harmonious, with vegetal notes of wild herbs.
The packaging is characterised by the intriguing transparent green glass bottle and the clear label highlighting the prevailing botanicals.
For mixed drinks, in addition to the Gin Tonic of course, we suggest ‘Wild Negroni’, a reinterpretation of the new cocktail, specially created for the new distillate.
