Never Never Distilling Co. has just introduced a new twist to the gin market – a Coffee and Cacao Gin, inspired by the rich flavors of Italian desserts and coffee. This new offering is set to delight fans of both gin and Italian cuisine, combining the best of both worlds.
The idea behind this unique gin is to evoke the experience of indulging in a classic Italian tiramisu or sipping a richly flavored cappuccino. It’s designed for those who love the idea of savoring an espresso at a Roman bar. With its blend of roasted coffee and earthy cacao, this gin is all about bringing a touch of Italian flair to the cocktail scene.
The Coffee and Cacao Gin is the result of a collaboration between Never Never Distilling Co. and Lorenzo Antinori, a well-known name in the world of mixology, particularly for his work at his new Hong Kong bar, Bar Leone. The bar focuses on Italian culture, combining football, fun, and flavors, and this gin fits right into that theme.
However, if you’re keen to try it, you’ll need to be quick. Never Never is releasing less than 500 bottles in Australia, making it a limited-edition treat for gin enthusiasts.
In terms of cocktails, the Coffee and Cacao Gin is a great base for a unique take on the classic Negroni. The gin pairs well with the dark notes of Italian sweet vermouth, creating a new spin on the traditional drink. Never Never suggests trying it in a “Leone Negroni,” mixing the gin with Campari and sweet vermouth, garnished with an orange peel for a zesty twist.
Another recommended cocktail is the “Espresso Chinotto,” where the gin is combined with sweet vermouth and Chinotto, garnished with an orange wedge. This drink highlights the gin’s ability to complement the bittersweet flavors of traditional Italian mixers.
With the Coffee and Cacao Gin, Never Never Distilling Co. is offering a new and exciting product for gin lovers and those who appreciate the rich, comforting flavours of Italian coffee and chocolate.
