HANDCRAFTED ON THE SHORES OF GARDA LAKE
Aromas, perfumes, tastes of Bardolino. These are the factors that inspired the creation of Lacus Dry Gin. Through a careful selection of botanicals characteristic of the eastern shore of Lake Garda, and an even more careful balance of the ingredients in the recipe this distillate literally brings us around the town’s alleys.
The microclimate provided by the lake grants this area an incredible variety of officinal plants, flowers and fruits typical both of maritime and mountain environments. This is a key element for us: we have the opportunity to draw from a significant amount of botanicals and play with their characteristics, yet aware of having a fully local product.
The result is a London Dry style gin with Mediterranean character, fresh and fragrant. At the nose stand out herbal and floral aromas and at the palate is dry and confident thanks to the juniper taking the stage, with a very good persistence.
Lacus Bardolino Dry Gin is elaborated with London Dry technique and contains 11 typical botanicals typical of this area of Lake Garda: herbs, fruits and flowers easily recognizable when walking around town and the surroundings hills.
These botanicals, carefully selected and balanced give this spirit a Mediterranean character: intriguing smell, seducing when tasting and long aftertaste. This spirit gives you a dry sensation but always evolving every second. Never too rough in spite of its 46 degrees in alcohol.
It fits perfectly in a G&T paired with a mediterranean or dry tonic, and its versatility allows the preparation of majestic cocktails such as the classics Negroni and Martini, among them all.
Lacus Dry Gin is distilled in Pesaro by Distilleria Mezzanotte, a young small distillery capable to realize extremely high quality products, with an anti-waste philosophy and favouring the Made in Italy.
The still they use, Percival, is a German made alembic from the Müller family, almost 100 years of experience manufacturing distillation gear. Discontinuous, made of copper and with different sections where the vapour can condense and evaporate again, this still can extract the most and the best essential oils even from the most delicate botanicals. Looking at it in action is a true wonder!
