MICHELANGELO AWARDS - GOLD
A SMALL BATCH PREMIUM
Distilled from the finest white spirits in small forty liter batches. Extensive fractional distillation produces a smooth base of the finest quality and purity. This is infused with premium juniper berries and elements from more than 30 indigenous botanicals, sustainably hand harvested for their bark, roots, berries, flowers, stems, peels or leaves. Many of these botanicals are members of the fynbos group of plants for which the region is world famous.
Some of the notable fynbos and herbs include: wild dagga, honeybush, buchu, African wormwood, renosterbos, African potato, devil’s claw, cancer bush and Sceletium Tortousum or Bushman’s ecstasy.
These botanicals are macerated in the alcoholic base prior distillation to allow for optimal binding of the herbal aromas. Vapour-path extraction of flavours are then achieved by suspending the botanicals from the top of the kettle in a muslin bag.
A stepwise bending with pure granite mountain spring water results in a truly unique gin of the highest quality.
Deep and complex herbal aromas with hints of orange essence, cloves and white pepper, honey and wild Fynbos all overlaying a perfectly smooth palate make this into a gin to treasure.
