DISTILLERIA DELL'ALPE - F.LLI DE BERNARD - 1948


 
 

KAPRIOL GIN

Kapriol Gin born in 2016 after years of research and testing of the old Kapriol classic recipe, the archetypal mountain dew spirit. Kapriol Gin is a handmade distilled spirit with a long history. It has been produced since 1948 following an old recipe, using mountain herbs, that begins with the careful selection of quality botanical herbs, enhanced by a unique distillation process that has continued for more than a century.

 
 

DISTILLATION

Kapriol Dry Gin’s recipe contains 15 botanical herbs, among them Hops, Oregano and Bay Leaves which are distilled using the ancient technique of cold distillation. Angelica, Chamomile, Rosemary and Rosehip are added, using only herbs growing naturally in the Alps. There are no citrus fruits added, following the original recipe created in 1948.

Juniper berries are infused at room temperature for fifteen days before the first distillation begins, in two 100 litre copper stills from the Second World War. The same procedure is applied to the other herbs, except for the hops, bay leaves and oregano, which are distilled by a cold process which also extracts the colour pigments, following a gentle filtration that maintains the natural flavours.


DRY

DRY VEGETAL BALSAMIC

Kapriol Dry Gin has a fresh, balsamic bouquet of forest mountains, reminiscent of juniper and mint with a note of pine and bay leaves. The aroma is smooth and enduring whilst the herbs are balanced by the hops’ bitterness. Kapriol Dry Gin is free of sugar, thus creating a dry aromatic flavour. The absence of citrus fruits makes it easy to mix. In our opinion it goes well with lime and grapefruit, and results in a smooth, dry gin and tonic, extremely refreshing and satisfying, with a gentle bitterness.
