The stunning hills of Piedmont is the location for this historic distillery. It is now protected under UNESCO rules in order to preserve not only the natural beauty of the land but also the incredibly special herbs and botanicals that have been found there for generations and cannot be found growning anywhere else in the world.
The original company was founded in 1890 and was revived by friends - all bartenders looking for quality ingredients for blending into cocktails; when they met the great grandson of the founder, master distiller Carlo Quglia - the idea began to form a new company which would revive and specialise in some of the Italian classic bitters and vermouths which were so popular in the 18th - 19th century.
Del Professore - Gin A La Madame is made with a distillate of wild juniper and then mixed with a cold infusion of herbs and spices, citrus peel and cinnamon . After the infusion, the gin is filtered extremely delicately in order not to lose any of the intense aromas gained from natural infusion.
Gin Madame is intense and fresh - just how a gin should be in my opinion. There is a natural sweetness present from the infusion of sweet spices and this gives the gin the trademark softness and round mouthfeel.
