A passion for Tuscany and a passion for good Gin. These two concepts might seem to have nothing in common to those who are not experts in this particular spirit, because few people know that the very best juniper in the world, used in fact to produce many high quality Gins, actually comes from Tuscany. The Sabatinis invited Charles Maxwell and his wife to spend a week at their property in Cortona, Tuscany. Here, they presented Charles with their business plan, and he agreed to help them develop a Tuscan London Dry Gin.
The botanical selection process was very much inspired by the local surroundings. The foursome and Charles took a walk around the land and when the family members started to point to the bushes and trees, the idea of what they were after, what might work and how best to convey the flavours started to take shape.
There are precisely nine Tuscan botanicals in Sabatini Gin: juniper, coriander, iris, fennel, lavender, olive leaves, thyme, verbena and sage. The goal is to create a traditional London Dry Gin uniquely expressing the inimitable scent of Tuscany and its hillsides.
