Premium Gin – Distilled in Paraguay
Gin Sincere is produced in Paraguay in South America and is a tasty, tropical gin. It presents powerful notes of citrus and South American spices that immediately transport you to South America. Enjoy it “on the rocks” or with a good tonic.
All sub-suppliers who supply ingredients to the distillery are properly and fairly paid for their products. The distillery has its own organic sugarcane fields, which are used in the production of alcohol.
The pressed sugar cane is crushed and burned in its own boiler, which drives a small steam turbine that generates electricity. In this way, the distillery is self-sufficient in energy, and the sugarcane is thereby included as a reusable, sustainable resource for the production of electricity.
For the production of Gin Sincere, sweet oranges, sour oranges, tangerines, pomelo and three different types of lime are used. All ingredients are organic and harvested locally in Paraguay. All the fruits are added to the alcohol along with organic, American juniper and steeped for 24 hours at around 50ºC. The base itself is extra neutral alcohol of 96%.
After the citrus and juniper have steeped in the alcohol for 24 hours, a “gin basket” is prepared, where local ingredients such as angelica root, star anise, violet root, cloves, cinnamon, pink peppercorns, lemongrass and congorosa are added.
The distillation process begins when the mash is heated and the alcohol begins to evaporate. In the distillation process, the bags of citrus are still in the kettle, and the alcohol is evaporated and sent through a “gin basket”, where all the herbs give off flavor.
Finally, the finished gin is collected and aged in American bourbon casks for 45 days. The storage in wooden casks gives more complexity to the finished gin and also helps to give the finished gin its beautiful colour.
Gin Sincere Barrel Aged is bottled at 47%. The slightly higher alcohol is necessary as this gin contains many natural oils from the peel of the citrus fruits. The natural oils are dissolved in the higher alcohol, which, together with the cask aging, helps to give the optimal taste.
