Uncle Val's Botanical Gin
Country of Origin: USA
Uncle Val’s is a small-batch botanical gin inspired by Zio Valerio’s love of gardening and native tuscan cuisine. The botanicals are not only Uncle Val’s favorite cooking ingredients, but also happen to make an exceptionally unique and smoothly delicious gin.
Uncle Val’s presents a complex and subtly pleasing sensation of flavors. Raise your glass and you’ll notice crisp aromas of sage and juniper. Your first sip will bring out a bright lemon taste, which gives way to a warm, spicy, lavender finish, softened by the coolness of cucumber. Each sip bolsters the botanical flavors, along with a continuous presence of piney juniper.
NOSE: On the nose, you’ll notice crisp, bright aromas of sage and juniper.
MOUTHFEEL: Crisp and cool sensation that steadily softens.
SIP: You’ll taste bright lemon, which then gives way to a warm, spicy, lavender fi nish. Further along, you’ll experience the cooling effect of the cucumber. Each sip bolsters the botanical fl avors, along with a continuous presence of piney juniper.
FROM NEAT TO SWEET: The Botanical is a wonderful way to fancy up old classics like Arnold Palmers, mimosas or a gin fi zz. It also mixes beautifully with native Tuscan herbs, from red valerium and thyme to lemon balm and mint. To round out straight martinis and a neat drink, try lightly sweet garnishes like candied ginger, cinnamon sticks, pear, dehydrated apple or cucumber.
