Elena Gin is a London Dry Gin developed by Elena Penna Currado and Luca Currado Vietti of the iconic Piedmont-based Vietti winery. Elena Gin is made in the “Langa Style,” and embodies the famous hills of the Langhe area of Barolo.
Elena Gin is a spirit of regional provenance and features native botanicals from the Italian Alps of Piedmont including juniper berries, almonds, Langhe thyme, coriander seeds, black elderflower, Angelica, wild mint, chamomile, cassia bark, and the peel and flowers of organically-grown citrus fruits from the Ligurian hills bordering Piedmont.
Made in small batches, Elena Gin is produced using two heirloom wood-fired pot stills from the 18th century that were refurbished for production. Elena Gin is made in the “one shot” method, where the delicate botanicals are only used once to highlight the aromatic compounds at their finest. The native botanicals are gently infused in the pot stills, and then the gin is lightly filtered using natural paper, leaving the final liquid with a subtle yellow hue.
