Essential by Franco Cavallero is a very fragrant, very balanced Amaro, with a predominantly herbaceous aroma, with balsamic and citrus nuances. A spicy finish, never cloying, which gives salivation and at the same time a sensation of freshness. The bitter notes derive from sweet clover, gentian, tansy, absinthe, cinchona and angelica, the most balsamic aromas come from sage, hyssop and mint to be complemented by the citrus aromas of orange. Low sugar content and natural predisposition to be taken as a digestive. An amaro not only at the end of a meal, but designed for contemporary mixing, used as a substitute for vermouth, smooth with ice and lemon zest, or mixed with tonic water, ice and lemon.
Independent, proud, courageous, unpredictable like a stormy sea and with a taste for adventure, Franco Cavallero carries on his dream: to produce a Gin that is entirely the result of the territory, of which he can follow the entire production chain, using only fresh ingredients, botanicals selected and grown by him at "zero kilometer". Cavallero began with three thousand square meters of plots to cultivate the most suitable botanicals to be able to characterize his Gin, up to four hectares, increasing at the same pace the species of cultivated plants, which have increased from twenty to thirty-five types. The territory becomes a fundamental variable, the altitude (very important for a greater concentration of the active ingredient), the exposure and the soil become the focus of his research. Over time, medicinal plants with therapeutic or aromatic characteristics have been added to the recipe to give considerable complexity to the drink.
