Gin Italy asked to the Gin producers of the world if they were using Italian botanicals in their recipes.
From the answers of this investigation, it’s noticeable that some botanicals appear often (like juniper) and other are endemic, so they can be bought just here (like Florentine Iris or bergamot)
This is the complete list:
The Gin brands using these botanicals are located in the USA, the Uk, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Argentina and Spain.
A Gin produced from this recipe would have a strong citrousy note, with the other common notes from liquorice, coriander, and fennel, rosemary and basil. You would definitely associate it to Italy reading the ingredients.
This was the answer we got, now we have to understand what’s missing to produce a good Gin?
