Gin McQueen and The Violet Fog is distilled and bottled in the hills of Jundiaì, the Brazilian city in the State of San Paolo.
It is a small batch gin produced combining the two traditional methods of gin production: maceration and vapor infusion.
First 15 botanicals are blended with a 120-proof neutral spirit in a copper pot still, then the concentrated vapors pass through a copper basket with other six botanicals. Essential oils from these botanicals marry with the macerated alcohol to produce the ultimate gin.
Among the 21 botanicals, there are six “signature” botanicals rarely found in gin: basil leaves, rosemary, fennel seed, calamansi, star anise and acai.
McQueen and The Violet Fog is a gin of breathtaking smoothness and intriguing complexity .
