Distilled 5x and infused with Uncle Val's favorite botanicals, the same kind he grew in his garden back in Lucca, Italy.
Juniper, Cucumber, Lemon, Sage, Lavender
On the nose, you'll notice crisp, bright aromas of sage and juniper.
Crisp and cool sensation that steadily softens.
You’ll taste bright lemon, which then gives way to a warm, spicy, lavender finish. Further along, you’ll experience the cooling effect of the cucumber. Each sip bolsters the botanical flavors, along with a continuous presence of piney juniper.
The Botanical is a wonderful way to fancy up old classics like Arnold Palmers, mimosas or a gin fizz. It also mixes beautifully with native Tuscan herbs, from red valerium and thyme to lemon balm and mint. To round out straight martinis and a neat drink, try lightly sweet garnishes like candied ginger, cinnamon sticks, pear, dehydrated apple or cucumber.
Uncle Val’s is a small-batch botanical gin inspired by Zio Valerio’s (zio means ‘uncle’ in Italian) love of gardening and Tuscan cuisine. The botanicals were chosen because they were not only Uncle Val’s favorite cooking ingredients, but also happen to make a truly unique and smoothly delicious gin.
