Peter in Florence is a distillery located in Pelago, Rufina, in Tuscany. The distillery is the only one in the region and in all of Italy to use a Carter Head alembic, which allows the botanicals to be placed in a box above the alembic, so that the alcohol in the evaporation phase extracts aromas decisively without burning the botanists themselves. 14 botanicals are used, of which the main ones are certainly Tuscan gin and iris, also a symbol of the city of Florence; all botanicals selected from selected local suppliers very attentive to the dictates of organic cultivation.
To produce gin it is necessary to “aromatize” an alcoholic base with some elements of which one of the components or often the main one is juniper. This can happen in various ways: either through maceration of the botanicals in alcohol, which is then redistilled to find a colorless and “cleaner” product, or the botanicals can be placed in a container placed above the alembic, so that alcohol in the form of vapor extracts aromas and perfumes.
Limpid and transparent, it reveals an aromatic bouquet of extraordinary delicacy and elegance, with subtle notes of citrus peel, floral nuances, aromatic herbs, whispered spices and juniper berry fragrances. When tasted, a clear and harmonious entry is perceived, with an intense and complex sip that extends into an extremely persistent finish.
Perfect at the end of a meal or as a meditation drink, excellent for creating refreshing high quality cocktails!
