Why we love it
Italy is not associated with gin, however, like for the craft beer, craft gin is on the rise and plenty have embraced the craft gin movement so much so, that Italian gin has become a brand to identify all Italian craft gins.
Italy is new to gin and doesn’t have big gin distilleries, so there are thousands of gins produced with each gin using different and local botanicals, making every gin unique. Italian gin at the moment is very exciting.
This craft Italian gin is made using 10 botanicals where 5 have greater intensity including sage, bergamot and juniper, hence the name “Piu’ Cinque” , plus five in Italian. The Piu’ Cinque craft distillery is located in the north of Italy and the botanicals are collected from the Dolomite mountains, just behind their distillery, where the air is clean and the flavours are more intense. We recommend it to be served with our wild botanical tonic.
Our Italian Gin Piu Cinque has been awarded "Gold Medal" at International Wine and Spirit Competition 2019 and we recommend our Wild Botanical Tonic to go with it
The artisan who made it
Antonio, Filippo and Giacomo are three Venetian friends that created Piu Cinque gin after months of smelling, tasting and especially arguing, in their quest for an excellent gin, as they call it, they could not find a gin they liked and was versatile as they wanted it.
They eventually created the Piu Cinque (plus five) and its name indicates the intensity of the botanicals present in the recipe, the gin is made using 10 Italian botanicals, but 5 of them are felt more than the others.
