We research the best juniper from Tuscany and the best raw materials to give life to our first recipe, and, finally in 2020, after almost a year of tests and studies, MIDNIGHTGIN takes shape and Spirit - in every sense.
Juniper is the main botany of Gin, not only from a historical point of view but above all thanks to its flavor. Many distillers consider the Italian juniper as the best in the world, in particular the areas of Umbria and Tuscany thanks to the soil and the suitable microclimate allow us to harvest a very high quality juniper.Our Midnight Gin is made using only Italian juniper, to be precise only Tuscan juniper, to get the most out of this wonderful berry.
The chinotto together with the lemon forms the strong citrus profile that we wanted to give to our Midnight Gin and contributes with its very characteristic bitterness to calm the sweet notes conferred by other botanicals, giving the Gin a dry and bitter finish that leaves the mouth satisfied. and ready for a new Midnight GinTonic.
The second citrus fruit we use to enhance the citrus profile is lemon to give freshness, drinkability and fragrance to our Midnight Gin.
There are many varieties of pepper with very different characteristics, what we have decided to include among the botanicals is a very particular and citrusy pepper, where the classic tingle of pepper is dominated by the intense aroma.
The second flower we use is Ireos, a common name for some species of plants belonging to the genus Iris. It has a pleasant smell of violet in the dry state and contributes to the floral profile of our gin.
To counteract the sweeter notes given by the flowers, we have included ginger in our blend of botanicals. Once distilled, it almost completely loses its characteristic tingling but maintains its marked and characteristic aroma unaltered.
Elderberry is the first of the flowers we use to create the base of our Midnight Gin, helping to give roundness to the blend of botanicals: We have chosen elderberry for the sweet scent of its flowers and for the freshness it gives to the drinks in which it is used.
In addition to juniper and the six botanicals described above, we have included 5 other botanicals in our gin that we want to keep secret. Some of these contribute to forming the basis on which the entire sensory experience rests, while others give a more decisive contribution to the taste and character of our gin.In addition to juniper, 11 botanicals are used, all meticulously selected and dosed to enclose in the glass the experience we want you to try!
