Posted by Daniel Marques on

Since it's creation, gin has conquered significant spaces in the world of alcoholic beverages. When preparing a gin we can come across a wide range os combinations of botanicals, always hoping to enhance the flavor and aroma it is common to question which is the best option.

 

 

Gin is produced from the combination of neutral grains, in which juniper is the main ingredient and which defines the name of the distillate. However, when making the drink, other ingredients can be added. For Adamus, the Baga grape variety was the motto. Among other regions, an intense search was carried out from the centenary mountain range of Buçaco to the seafront, where some of the best and most special botanicals of organic production were found.

Our blend consists of 18 different botanicals, the most common ones, such as Juniper, Hibiscus, Poejo, Orange, Lemon, Cinnamon, Ginger and Cardamom, and others more daring such as Baga grape, Sage, Lavender and others not revealed, source of the mystery that gives Adamus such a special and original character. However, in addition to being essential at the time of gin production, botanicals are a key element when preparing the gin drink. Each ingredient can take into account everything from the formality of the occasion to the weather, for example. With a little creativity, alchemy happens. So, here we present some of the best botanicals to use when you want to drink that glass of gin.
