Gin del Professore – A La Madame
A fascinating gin release from Piemonte, Italy based company Del Professore, better known for its superb vermouth.
This “Madame” gin is the partner to the “Monsieur” bottling. Whilst “Monsieur” is a more traditional juniper, citrus forward gin. “Madame” on the other hand is rich with cinnamon, vanilla, and floral flavours.
The gin is made with botanicals including juniper, cloves, cinnamon, tansy, zedoaria and cassia. These botanicals are infused with a juniper distillate, creating a complex and flavoursome spirit.
A sweet and floral offering, this would lend itself well to cocktails such as the Aviation or Clover Club.
Beautifully presented, and non chill filtered, this is a gin of unrelenting class
The Jerry Thomas Project is no ordinary producer, it is better known as Rome’s best speakeasy cocktail bar. Its recent partnership with Antica Distilleria Quaglia in a bid to start producing spirits as well as serving them, is a breath of fresh air. The Project is not just a tribute to the ‘father of American mixology’ Jeremiah Thomas, it is also a rediscovery of forgotten Italian spirits, a celebration of prohibition drinks with an Italian twist and an advocate for high quality products made with high quality raw Italian ingredients.
