Ginato Melograno Gin

Ginato Melograno Gin – a taste of La Dolce Vita

If the Italians have taught us anything, it’s to enjoy life to the full, appreciate beauty in all its forms and to take the time to savour good food and drinks. And it’s this same passion for good living that has gone into the making of Ginato gins.

The tasty new expression from the Ginato family, and just in time for summer, is MELOGRANO, an exhilarating combination of Barbera grapes, juniper berries and citrus. Luscious pomegranates from Sardinia give it its rich hue, sweet aroma and a lively fruit flavour.

Grown on the slopes overlooking the Italian lakes in the north, the carefully selected grapes are expertly blended with juniper berries from the sun-kissed hills of Tuscany and Umbria. Adding the zesty flavour is a variety of citrus fruit from orchards in the warm southern regions. The result is a range of gins that exude the very essenza dell’ Italia!

It’s this combination of three core ingredients – juniper, citrus and grapes – sourced from all corners of Italy that create Ginato’s trinity of provenance, the very spirito d’Italia.  The process evokes a magical connection between the landscape and the culture, encapsulating a way of life that is sizzling with storybook beauty.
