Roby Marton Original Dry Gin is an unusual gin for many different reasons. For starters, this particular gin is from Italy. Nowadays, most common gin brands come from Great Britain, USA, Spain, and the Netherlands. There are, however, one or two new countries entering the global gin market. With Marton’s Gin, Italy has joined the ranks of Spain and the Netherlands in becoming a gin-producing country.
This gin also has a very unique and distinctive profile due to the daring combination of botanicals. The botanical instances fill your mouth with colour and excitement, satisfying your senses. The gin, with light hints of juniper, reveals liquorice, ginger, and citrus tones as the elixir slips down your throat. At a high of 47% alcohol, Marton’s is a strong premium gin which is great for cocktails and long drinks.
The Roby Marton is made by cold infusion as in the oldest method: the distillate base of juniper and cereals is added with botanicals such as cloves, citrus peel, cinnamon, licorice, pink pepper, anise, red fruits and ginger. The botanicals remain in infusion for about 10 days, to transmit the aromas and perfumes to the distillate. All the components are carefully chosen by the manufacturer, who takes them from the regions where he believes the products are more best.
During the year, depending on the seasonality of the products and their availability, Roby Marton composes his infusion, for this reason it is easy to find very small differences between one batch and the other of the very few bottles produced. Another key feature of this Gin is its slightly turbid color. No clarification and filtering are carried out, but only a light microfiltration that leaves to the product its natural characteristics.
