Amazzoni Gin 42° cl 70
HISTORY: From the purity of the water that nourishes the Amazon comes a brand new recipe, with ingredients never before used in a gin and harmonized with each other by the Cone Sur’s most celebrated mixologist, with the courage to respect 400 years of gin tradition and at the same time open up to the aromas and maladies of the New World.
PRODUCT: Amázzoni is not only the first gin created in Brazil in a dedicated distillery, but from this land it welcomes five ingredients never before used as botanical ingredients in a gin. Juniper berries, pink pepper, bay leaf, lemon, tangerine, and coriander with the addition of the five unreleased Amazonian ingredients: cacao, Brazilian chestnut, maxixe, water lily, and cipó cravo.
The ingredients, 11 in all, are macerated in their natural state in distilled grain alcohol in a large copper still, the first ever designed and cast in Brazil, the beating heart and pride of the La Cachoeira distillery.
PROFILE: The perfect blend of classic botanicals and local ingredients creates a balanced London Dry with an Amazon soul: organic cocoa beans, maxixe fruit (a typical South American watermelon) and cipó cravo lend a fresh note while Brazilian chestnut lends an oily texture and smooth finish.
