Tasting Notes

Since the beginning of the 18th century in Piedmont, it has been customary to infuse juniper berries into alcohol to preserve their floral and digestive properties.  Ginepro has a distinct herbal quality reminiscent of genepy and Green Chartreuse, playing nicely with gin, tequila and most spirits for that matter!
