Principe De Los Apostles Mate Gin
Named as the first Premium Gin in Latin America, this “Nuevo Mundo” gin is different from classic flavours such as London Dry, made from the most representative and contemporary regional botanicals.
Meaning ‘Prince of Apostles’ – it was the creation of Renato Gioavanni & named after the town of Apóstoles, the national capital of the ‘Yerba Mate’, & where its first plantation took place. The ‘Yerba Mate’ is known as the source of an infusion called ‘mate’, which is traditionally consumed in central and southern regions of South America, and is known for its qualities similar to caffeine.
This Argentine Gin is made in Mendoza, although most of the botanicals come from Misiones. These include peppermint, juniper berries, coriander seeds, eucalyptus, pink grapefruit skin & yerba mate (from the holly tree family!), which capture the spirit of Argentina.
This gin’s flavor is dry yet fruity, herbaceous & earthy with notes of eucalyptus & peppermint, anise seed & white pepper. Try it in our “Foreign Correspondent” cocktail, or straight on the rocks!
