100% Distilled in Greece with 20 Greek Botanicals – Est. 2020
When making gin, the earth is a good place to start. Because that’s where you find all the herbs that can make a gin special – indeed, tastier… & if there’s one place in the world where botanicals exist in enviable abundance that’s Greece.
When set out to create “Votanikon Gin”, the aim was to give it a distinctly Greek flavour. Naturally, we started out with what surrounded us. Which, fortunately, was plenty. Pretty soon, it became a question of not what to put in, but what to keep out. So the decision was to include the basics. Namely, 20 botanicals such as juniper, sideritis, dictamnus, saffron, oregano, chamomile & mastiha, to name a few. The ones you can nip off on most mountain gorges & sunbaked island paths around the country. That are not only a common sight on most Greek family kitchen shelves but also some of the first words – & scents – with which we become familiar while growing up.
Call us spoiled… & now you can be too. Savour the most delicious Gin & Tonic, garnished with – what else? – three Greek green olives on a long toothpick.
