Kranebet Italian Gin, a classic gin brand that is produced by Rossi d’Asiago distillers, has officially launched in the United Kingdom.
What makes Kranebet particularly unique is that the gin was originally created as a medical elixir and, as a result, utilizes a unique set of ingredients and an artisanal distillation method. Unlike other gins, Kranebet is made using a copper still with a bain-marie system. Because of this, it is completely free of artificial flavors. Specific botanicals used in Kranebet include juniper berries, roman absinthe, quassia bark, gentian root, and coriander seeds.
According to the company, the spirit can be enjoyed both neat or chilled on the rocks, as well as mixed in cocktails such as a Gin and Tonic.
