Z44 is a distilled dry gin from South Tyrol. The essence of hand-picked pine cones from the slopes of the Weisshorn peak makes this gin unmistakeable. The pine trees can grow up to a height of 25 metres and live for 1000 years. The fresh, ripe cones are picked by hand in summer. The essence extracted from them is distilled in a small still, giving the gin a fresh, intense, almost menthol note. Fresh lime notes and a variety of Alpine and Mediterranean herbs and flowers from the Alpine foothills complement the fresh flavour of the cones. The gin’s characteristic notes of juniper are set off perfectly by yarrow and violet and gentian root.
