Argala Gin & Tonic

La fraîcheur alpine du Gin al Genepy en fait le choix idéal pour un Gin and Tonic classique, la quinine du tonic se mariant parfaitement avec l'amertume du Genepy pour créer un highball qui chante les montagnes ! Mesurez 60 ml de Gin al Genepy avec 180 ml d'eau tonique de qualité supérieure dans un verre highball refroidi sur de la glace, en ajoutant une goutte d'amer aromatique pour accentuer les épices subtiles présentes dans le gin.

Inspiration behind the product

Gin al Genepy carves out a journey inwards from the international, global-reach of gin, to the intimate and local mountainous climates where Genepy is produced. By taking the universally recognised formula of juniper-infused spirit, and combining it with the regional botanicals that characterise the maritime Alps, Argala’s take on gin carves out a distinctive style that captures the alpine character of the Piedmont region of Italy while working within a well-established spirit category.

What makes it unique

Gin al Genepy takes a cold-compounding approach to gin production, infusing the classical style of juniper-forward gin with the spirit of the maritime Alps. This is achieved by a lengthy maceration process, where key botanicals like genepy flowers are left to steep in wheat distillate for up to six months. The delicate and non-invasive form of maceration allows for the delicate, floral aromatics of the alpine botanicals to be captured with being denatured under stress of heat or pressure, resulting in a gin that is exceedingly fresh and complex.
