No prizes for guessing that Sicilian Blood Orange peels form the keynote botanical in this gin… Blood oranges are a prized variety in Sicily, harvested in November when their rich red color develops in the cool Mediterranean nights. The peels are steeped in alcohol and pressed in a basket press. The infusion is then blended with juniper and other botanicals before being distilled in a stainless steel vacuum still. Expect refreshing citrus with a touch of vanilla. Tart grapefruit and juniper balance the orange sweetness. Try it in a G&T with fresh fruit for garnish. 41% Alc./Vol.
