Torini Distillati was founded in 1906 in Moncalieri by the Fratelli Ferrero di Riccardo family. Today the company is owned and run by Carlo Vergnano and wife Piera and his daughter Rita. Years of culture and heritage are distilled into each bottle of the multi-award winning Seven Hills, creating a perfectly balanced gin with a touch of Italian romance and style.
Seven Hills Italian Dry Gin is created used seven quality botanicals inspired by, and dating back to, the Roman Empire: Pomegranate, Rose Hip, Juniper, Roman Camomile, Blood Orange, Artichoke and Celery hand chosen by a Master Herbalist. Each of the 7 ingredients were commonly used as part of cooking ingredients and for medical purposes. The botanicals are infused for 10-15 days, they are gently pressed to extract their individual flavours before the extract is then distilled using a vacuum pot distillation – a gentle and innovative method of distillation designed to maintain the smooth and rich flavours of the botanicals. The result is a perfectly balanced spirit with a distinctive body, strength and flavour that is delicately complex and still remains light and refreshing.
Seven Hills Italian Dry Gin is an aromatic Juniper Spirit with a delicate and citrusy flavour on the nose. On the palate, sweet pomegranate and blood orange with hints of roman camomile are perfectly balanced by fresh celery and artichoke aromas.
Perfect in a Negroni:
