From Tuscany, “Distillerie Prete“, whose main value is the constant research in the determination of assemblies, analysis on finished products and organoleptic forecasts of each product on the basis of chemical and sensorial evaluations. From Lombardy were selected: “Distillerie Peroni Maddalena“, “Testacoda Gin” and “Eugin Distilleria Indipendente”. “Distillerie Peroni Maddalena” is differentiated by distillates that give time a moment in which to stop and meditate. With the desire to create organic spirits, with strong sensory notes, the company “Testacoda Gin” was born in 2017. Its products have been awarded at the International Taste Awards 2020. Another name among those present for the spirits category is the Brianza-based company “Eugin Distilleria Indipendente“, winner of six awards at the International Taste Awards 2020.
