Verbena

Verbena

Lemon verbena is a shrub native to South America which has a distinct flavour of lemon when bruised. Ours is completely organically grown from France. It brings a natural freshness slightly different from the lemons and oranges inside. Look at the citrus-group in GastroGin as an orchestra. You might not hear that single violin play, but if it's not there; you will undoubtfully miss this nuance. Verbena is that violin in GastroGin.

Grapefruit

Grapefruit

The more red a grapefruit is, the more sweet it is. Gastrogin uses only red grapefruits which are deliciously bitter-sweet with that typical acid-sugar balance to it. The variety used in GastroGin is Ruby Red and grown in the south of Turkey near Adana by Taner Bugay.

His reason to 'go organic' is he found his family felt a lot more healthy when they ate all natural fruits. Obviously he changed his farm around and nowadays he's a big advocate of all natural.

Lemon

Lemon

The best lemons we could source are defenitly southern Italian ones. We source them from the Amalfi area in Sorrento. They aren't sprayed with anything else than love, making sure it's healthy and very aromatic. 

In the maceration we don't only use the peel but the entire lemon all cut up in pieces. This adds to a little acidity in the maceration which helps gaining the flavour from the other botanicals too.

Orange peel

Orange peel

The outside of an orange has etherical oils and those oils give a beautiful depth and citrus note to any distillate. No wonder we love to use it in this gin as a base citrus-component. We use oranges from either Spain or Portugal which are remarkably sweeter than other countries. As we only use organic fruits, we are sure all the fruit is free from substances like wax and possible fertilizers and so we obtain the best and purest oils from the skin.
