Silvio Carta - Pigskin Gin 700ml
700ml Sardinian barrel-aged craft gin from Zeddiani, Sardinia
Wild juniper berries are hand-gathered from plants that grow 5-6 metres from the Sardinian coastline (on the beach) and are used fresh (not dried) in the distillation process. The berries are then transported to the distillery in special cane baskets to ensure they do not get damaged.
Juniper berries, myrtle, thyme, fennel, sage and lemon peel are added to the infusion which is warmed slowly and kept temperature-controlled throughout the distillation process.
'Pigskin' gin is aged for 12 months in chestnut barrels which were previously used to age Vernaccia di Oristano wine.
A spicy gin with aromas of aromatic herbs, nutmeg and toasted vanilla. It is soft, round, and warm on the palate with gentle spice and lingering earthy, toasted notes on the finish.
Serve this gin straight over ice, as you would whisky, or as a base for sophisticated cocktails.
- Unique in the world of craft gin
