Federico ‘Fred’ Cremasco is a remarkable young producer of Vermouth, Bitter, Amaro and Gin from the town of Polcenigo, in Friuli. You could call him an herbalist; he devises recipes for his products from combinations of botanicals, some foraged wild nearby, some grown by him, some brought in from other areas, then creates his elixirs from these botanicals using varying methods of extraction.
He has experimented endlessly, trying out different methods of extraction (alcoholic distillation, steam distillation, cold maceration of fresh herbs, cold maceration of dried herbs, and hot maceration of fresh and dried herbs) to discover which method best suits the individual botanical. He then devises recipes for his alcoholic elixirs from combinations of these botanical extractions.
Production method: Five all natural extractions: Alcoholic distillation, steam distillation, cold maceration of dried herbs, cold maceration of fresh herbs, and hot maceration, all using nearly pure alcohol.
INGREDIENTS: 43 botanicals, including juniper, angelica, lemon, orange, mandarin, thyme, lavender, mint, anise, fennel, mountain pine, Melissa, iris, masterwort, savory, clary sage, wormwood, yarrow, licorice, saffron, orange blossom, hyssop, marjoram.
COLOR: straw yellow, from the cold infusion of orange blossom and saffron
BOUQUET: Fred’s notes: ‘More juniper than classic gin, a violet scent from the iris, a touch of lavender and citrus, a herbaceous combination of coriander and angelica, ending with mint.’
FLAVORr: ‘Gin 43 has a delicate herbaceous but persistent and citrusy flavor; sweetness given by the mixture of dill, fennel, licorice and anise. A note of bitterness is given by the maceration of the masterwort, gentian, aromatic calamus (or ‘sweet flag’), wormwood, and the essential juniper. A final note is from angelica seeds and roots; on the finish a fresh taste from thyme, melissa, sage, and mint.’ Importer Notes
