Gin Clandestino is a very juniper forward gin. The strong, resinous and dry notes of the juniper berries are followed by the spiciness of the coriander, well balanced thanks to the angelica root that brings it all together and enhances the herbaceous, citrusy and floral notes of cardamom and Acorus calamus.
Gin Clandestino is a compound gin. The fine botanicals are separately macerated in a smooth grain alcohol. The distillate is not filtered so the gin has a peculiar amber colour and an intense aroma.
History and curiosities
Gin Clandestino, produced by Mistico Speziale, is a tribute to the so called Bathtub gins made during Prohibition in secret bars called “Speakeasy”. The company Mistico Speziale was founded in 2010 by Saverio Denti, after his degree in Tecniche Erboristiche (Herbal Techniques). He was only 26 when he started growing his own medicinal herbs in his family estate and then he opened his laboratory in Roncadella (Emilia-Romagna, Italy). There Saverio started making infusions and distillates, such as Absinthe, the Poets Liqueur (he wrote his graduate thesis about it) and Gin Clandestino.
