AORATOS - A CYPRUS DRY GIN 700ml
AORATOS LAYERED COMPLEXITY
Inspired by the world-famous botanicals that grow on the island of Cyprus, AORATOS dry gin is a reflection of the aromas and the essence of the Cypriot mountains.
AORATOS dry gin is a premium small-batch, dry gin handcrafted by Aristides Distillery, combining 10 organic, local hand-picked botanicals. The first dry gin, sourced, produced, distilled, and bottled in Cyprus.
Gentle, complex, and aromatic, AORATOS is selectively distilled with wild juniper berries of endemic species, locally known as "Aoratos", Coriander, Angelica root, Nettle leaves, Iron wort, Sage, Rosemary and more. A unique expression of the heart and soul of the Cyprus mountains.
Strength: 43% ABV
Nose: Surprisingly warm and fresh. The juniper is surrounded by rosemary and the almost musky smell of sage.
Taste: A very smooth few first seconds give way to an explosion of warm almost umami-like flavors of the Cypriot botanicals. Fresh citrus harmonizes with the sun-dried herbs, while the juniper perfectly combines with the more iron-like taste of the iron-wort. The result is like a walk through the mountains on a hot day, feet firmly on the rich mineral grounds, nose delighted by the warmed-up spices.
Finish: Long and hearty. The juniper and iron-wort stay on the tongue for some time, while the citrus slowly sinks to the background.
