Principe De Los Apostoles Mate Gin (750ml)

SKU #1214723 90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This unusual and appealing gin is made with yerba mate tea (“the most Argentinean drink of all,” the producer says) and dials back traditional juniper in favor of sprightly eucalyptus and peppermint. It's a warmer expression of gin, with a supersweet, cocoa-like aroma and flavor and velvety feel on the palate. *Top 50 Spirits of 2015* (KN) Inner quote mark (12/2015)

K&L Notes

The first premium gin from Argentina brings not only divine botanical flavor, but a marriage of fine herbs and spices not normally used in standard gin production. Yerba mate is an herb derived from rainforest trees, and consumed primarily in Central and South America where it's made into a beverage called "mate." It is said to have the strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate all in one. Made at a small distillery in Mendoza, Renato Giovannoni’s new project uses the famed yerba mate, as well as peppermint, eucalyptus, coriander, and pink grapefruit skin. The mouthfeel is creamy and soft, and the botanicals are potent, as flavors of spearmint, savory herbs, and bits of citrus wash over the palate to a clean and vibrant finish. This is the first must-have gin we've tasted this year. Mix it with tonic and add a sprig of eucalyptus for fun. It's absolutely divine.
