The exceptional taste comes from different factors. First, they macerate high quality juniper berries and spices for a week. Second, they distill everything once in a small-batch alembic.The juniper berries are sourced from a nature reserve in Uzbekistan, Central Asia. Agriculture is the chief source of income for the mainly rural population, but many farmers live below the poverty line. Fairtrade spices, as the juniper berries, cardamom and coriander, are sourced in the Varganza village, in the region of Samarkand. The Dustkul Bogi cooperative has three main objectives: to increase production, develop the social environment and develop organic production.
It has a very unique truffle smell, quite earthy, very refreshing taste with notes of fennel and liquorice. As well as being really smooth and fresh, it works really well with Tonic and lemon zest and makes it taste like an alcoholic lemon sorbet.
