About Principe De Los Apostoles Mate Gin
Wildly different from the classic winter flavors of the classic London Dry Gin, Principe de los Apostoles Mate Gin offers a unique tropical and warm flavor profile. Crafted with yerba mate, a traditional Argentinian botanical from the Misiones region, this gin honors the centuries-long tradition of Guaraní people harvesting the native plant., each botanical, including pink grapefruit, coriander, and eucalyptus, are macerated separately for 24 hours in a wheat alcohol base in stainless steel containers. Only the peppermint is left to macerate for just 2 hours. The blend is then distilled in small, German copper stills in the Sol do Los Andes gin and grappa distillery in Mendoza, Argentina. A velvety, smooth and creamy gin with flavors of chocolate and fresh herbs, it's bold enough to stand up beautifully in a cocktail like Negroni.

About Principe De Los Apostoles
Tato Giovannoni, the founder of Principe de los Apóstoles, grew up in the foods and spirits business 250 miles from Buenos Aires. He began working at his father’s restaurant at the tender age of 12 and his love affair with fine flavors continues to this day. An internationally acclaimed cocktail consultant, he opened up Florería Atlántico, which remains the only bar in South America featured in Drinks International Best 50 Bars in the World.
According to Winston Churchill, "The gin and tonic has saved more Englishmen's lives and minds than all the doctors in the Empire," referring to the British officers using it to treat malaria in India.
Initially made for medicinal purposes, gin gets most of its flavor from the juniper berries added after the distillation process. It sure has come a long way from the Middle Ages, with the introduction of new botanicals, fruits, and spices, bringing it closer to people of all flavor varieties.
