A family recipe
The family recipe hails from the 1940s and is based on a mix of amazing aromas that merges the sweetly-acid taste of wild juniper from the hills on the left bank of the River Piave with the intense balsamic flavour of mountain juniper from the legendary forest whose trees were used for the oars of the Venetian fleet.
Venetian Dry Gin
‘River’ colour, exceptionally transparent, with a bouquet that includes all the nuances of wheat: scents of malt, freshly baked bread, toasted hazelnuts – and juniper – mixed small berries, herbs, mint and a strong fruity hint. The mouthfeel is full and lively, with hints of minerals and sea salt, white pepper and spices. The aftertaste is long, earthy and exciting. It is simply perfect for dry Martinis. When making Gin tonic choose a delicate tonic water with a slightly citrus flavour. Drunk neat in a cold glass, River Mentana Venetian gin reveals its unique combination of power and finesse.
