Constantly they are working on developments to improve the quality of the products and to create new beverages. All those spirits are made to persuade for 100% purely with taste.
An overview of all Madame Geneva flavours
Back to the roots: this gin is made of juniper. In the past juniper was a principal component of gin. Madame Geneva Gin Blanc is made in this tradition. A counterpart to juniper is coriander and ginger. These two botanicals give the gin a fine and lightly fruity taste. The alcoholic strength is 44,4%.
This gin is made with an extraordinary recipe consisting of 46 aromatic botanicals. The botanicals are mixed with red wine. The taste is bitter but it still has some fruity notes. The red wine is made from a special grape which is called Primitivo.
To get its certain taste this gin is aged in Barrique barrels, which were used to age white wine in the past. The barrels are made of wood, which grew in the forests of Limousin. In these barrels the gin gets flavours of tannin and vanilla but also tertiary tastes of the wine. Every drop of this gin has a characteristic gold colour and an individual note. Each bottle has its own history because of the storage in different barrels.
