Boigin is a different kind of gin compared to the previous types. Lemon, tangerine and orange
peel have been added. This gives it more body and freshness. The cones are collected by hand
and transported inside specific containers made of woven canes to avoid any damage. The
discontinuous distillation is carried out in copper stills. The infusion is slowly warmed and,
during the entire distillation process, the thermal condition is kept just above the alcohol evaporation
temperature. The obtained distilled liquor is clear and transparent, with a high alcohol
by volume (about 80%), which needs to rest for at least one month in order to reach
a complete homogenization. It is bottled after dilution to bring the alcohol by volume to
40%. Ideal and surprising for an Italian Gin & Tonic.
The name “Boigin” refers to the Italian word for ox: bue.
“Boi” is a play on the word “Bue” hence Boigin. The ox refers to nature, liveliness and freshness that can be found in this unique gin.
