Sincere – Barrel-Aged
The Conscious Choice
A gin from Paraguay with heavy notes of citrus and South American spices. Enjoy it on the rocks or with your favorite tonic.
Gin Sincere is made of both sweet – and sour oranges, mandarin oranges, pomelo, and three different kinds of lime. All of the ingredients named above, are organic and locally harvested. The fruits are added to the alcohol together with organic American juniper and left to simmer for 24 hours at about 50o.
“If life gives you lemons, make gin”
Gin Sincere Barrel-Aged is produced in Paraguay in South America, and is therefore a fresh tropical gin. After the citrus and juniper have simmered in the alcohol for 24 hours, a gin basket is produced where more local ingredients such as angelica root¸ star anise, orris root, cloves, cinnamon, red peppercorns, lemongrass and congorosa are added. Again, all of the ingredients are organic.
The Conscious Choice
The distillation process starts by heating up the mash until the point when the alcohol starts to evaporate. During this process, the bags containing the citrus are left in the boiler and the evaporated alcohol is being sent through the ‘gin basket’, allowing all of the delicious herbs to add even more flavor.
Finally, the gin is extracted and stored in American whiskey barrels for 45 days. This gives more complexity to the finished product, and adds the beautiful color. We have decided to bottle our gin at 47% Vol, a bit more alcohol than necessary, as it contains many natural oils from the citrus. These natural oils are dissolved in the alcohol, and alongside the barrel-aging, they ensure the gins great and unique taste.
Gin Sincere Barrel-Aged is organic and produced in a Fairtrade certified distillery in Paraguay. This ensures a fair and reasonable pay for all the subcontractors delivering products to the distillery. They also rely on their own organic sugar cane fields for alcohol production. The rest of the necessary products are bought locally from other members of the Fairtrade-corporative.
The leftover sugar cane is burned in a boiler, adding power to a steam turbine, which then generates power for the entire distillery. This way the distillery becomes energy self-sufficient and the leftover sugar canes are repurposed in a sustainable manner.
