Uncle Valís is a small-batch botanical gin inspired by
Zio Valerioís love of gardening and native Tuscan cuisine. The botanicals are not only Uncle Valís favorite cooking ingredients, but also happen to make an exceptionally unique and smoothly delicious gin.
Juniper: the quintessential gin ingredient, juniper adds a dash of that distinctive ďginĒ taste to Uncle Valís.
Cucumber: adds a cooling effect to the taste, along with subtle freshness cues.
Lemon: the citrus zing provides balance amongst the botanicals, along with the added benefit of crispness.
Sage: derived from the phrase ďto be saved,Ē sage has been held in high regard throughout history both for itís culinary and medicinal properties. Helps make you feel more alert, calm and contented, with the effects lasting.
Lavender: historically used for its calming effect,
it reduces stress, aids in sleep.
Uncle Valís presents a complex and subtly pleasing sensation of flavors. Raise your glass and youíll notice crisp aromas of sage and juniper. Your first sip will bring out a bright lemon taste, which gives way to a warm, spicy, lavender finish, softened by the coolness cucumber. Each sip bolsters the botanical flavors, along with a continuous presence of piney juniper.
