Latest distillation technology
We use state-of-the-art technology which allow us premium quality products. After distillation every product is aged and incredibly smooth without harsh alcohol aromas.
Smell recovers strong drink with dominant note of juniperus with a touch of mediteranium sage. In this well ballanced mix you can also enjoy mild citrus note of orange. Smell & taste are quite different. Nice earthy note is spreading over the pallate, strong but good ballanced with other ingrediants. Without typical strong alcohol domination where fine taste characteristitcs are lost. Quite contrary!
