Uncle Val's Gin Botanical
Uncle Valís is a small-batch botanical gin inspired by
Zio Valerioís love of gardening and native tuscan cuisine. The botanicals are not only Uncle Valís favorite cooking ingredients, but also happen to make an exceptionally unique and smoothly delicious gin.
|Uncle Valís presents a complex and subtly pleasing sensation of flavors. Raise your glass and youíll 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 cucumber. Each sip bolsters the botanical flavors, along with a continuous presence of piney juniper.
