Item Description
Located on the idyllic island of Sardegna, Silvio Carta began making wines from local varietals in the 1950s, and by the 1970s was distilling liqueurs, aperitifs, and vermouth for the local market. The distillery is especially well-known for their Mirto, a liqueur made from local myrtle berries. The recipe was created in 1939, during a particularly harsh winter, when the Carta family learned to stretch their food supply by conserving the berries in a spirit distilled from Vernaccia grapes. While the Silvio Carta line of liqueurs and spirits has expanded, the products are all still made with native botanicals and fruit. The business remains in the family, with Silvios son Elio Carta now running the distillery with his nephews. At 91 years old, Silvio still oversees the farming of the lemons and botanicals used to make the liqueurs and vermouths. Made only from local ingredients, these products are of the highest quality, but still channel the easy going Sardinian lifestyle. -About the Distillery

Distillery Notes
Clean and delicate aromas of pine needles and juniper berries on the nose. Fresh and bright with mainly juniper and conifer forest notes, an essential gin without any gimmicks. Perfect for a negroni or gin and tonic.
