Portofino Dry Gin
750ml | 43% ABV
Portofino Dry Gin features the most delicate extraction of flavors and aromas using both antique and modern equipment. An old Italian copper pot still, initially used to make grappa, is utilized for distillation of Portofino Dry Gin. A state-of-the-art Rotavapor creates a vacuum to extract the most delicate notes from the 21 botanicals, including lemon, lavender, marjoram, sage, juniper, iris and rose.
The Tasting Journey
Portofino Dry Gin’s initial notes are from fresh lemon and crisp juniper that transport us to the hills of Portofino. They give way to a universe of Mediterranean flavours: from the rosemary and lavender perfumes of the coastal scrub to the sweet and delicate notes of marjoram and sage, that evoke the taste of traditional Ligurian cuisine.
The history of Portofino is as much a part of the spirit as the botanicals grown on the very hillside that is pictured above the village on the bottle design. Had it not been for the bravery of Klaus Pudel, grandfather of founder Ruggero Raymo, the famous village would have been destroyed during the second world war. Portofino Dry Gin was founded in homage to Klaus, the Portofinese icon, who went on to host some of the most wonderful parties of the La Dolce Vita era.
