Best 10 Italian gins - Limited Edition
Immediately after the war, from 1946 onwards an intense activity with distillates developed in Sardinia.
In the area the most representative products were distilled in terms of quantity and quality: Vernaccia grapes, Vernaccia wine and juniper galbula. The distillate obtained was intended for both trade and self-consumption. In the sale of the product, names were immediately sought which identified the product but were not attributable, from the supervisory bodies, to the product obtained from illegal distillation. The marc distillate was called filu 'e ferru, the distillate of the wine, the distillate of juniper Giniu, from the name of the juniper plant that in Sardinian is called giniperu. The "marketing" of Giniu lasted until the early sixties, then it was abandoned because it was much simpler and more practical to distil the wine or the marc, in addition to the fact that they were more sought after. In 2013 Elio considered it right to name the distillate of the galbula of juniper plants, a product of the highest quality considered one of the best 10 Italian gins, Giniu in honor of the ancient tradition.
