Tuscan artisan bread (gluten-free)
“Panmòllo 1912” is a gin made from single cold maceration of all ingredients except seawater.
We start with a base of 96% pure Italian grain alcohol, to which the alcohol content is reduced to 50% vol. by adding spring water. The botanicals added to this hydro-alcoholic solution will retain their organoleptic properties to the full, thanks to the reduced alcohol content.
The process takes place with fresh and not dried botanicals.
Our gin is an unfiltered product, so it only undergoes slow natural decanting processes.
The product achieves its final strength of 40% vol. through the addition of spring water and a small amount of seawater, the latter will reproduce the typical flavour of the original recipe.
This gin is made by hand in the most natural way possible, without the use of stills, machinery or filters, artificial flavourings and colourings.

Pappa al Pomodoro was born in the mid 18th century when the tomato was imported to Europe from the Americas. It is a dish belonging to poor Tuscan cuisine, the cuisine of the peasants who invented simple and tasty recipes using their leftovers.
It was originally made to recuperate leftover bread, then the peasants added peeled tomatoes, garlic, basil and plenty of extra-virgin olive oil. As for the name, it seems that pappa comes from the way children call any meal with tomatoes.
This humble origin dish became famous throughout Italy in the early 1900s due to Luigi Bertelli, a Florentine writer, known to the general public as Vamba, who mentions this recipe several times in his Giornalino di Gian Burrasca. This recipe received further success in the 1970s when Vamba’s Giornalino became a TV series starring singer and actress Rita Pavone who sang ‘Viva la pappa col pomodoro’.
In Tuscany they say ‘mangia la pappa (al pomodoro) perchè ti fa bello’ / ‘eat pappa al pomodoro because it makes you beautiful’. Apart from this nice regional saying, it is a great dish of reuse, with its idea of recovering kitchen leftovers and encouraging circular economy..
We aim to create sustainable products generating a positive impact and spreading a new concept in the spirits industry.
Our gins are made from fresh, responsibly selected raw materials respecting their seasonality and natural life cycle. We have selected local and Italian ingredients expertly infused using the cold compound technique while respecting the organoleptic properties of all raw materials. The 100% gluten-free ingredients in our recipes allowed us to create an inclusive and accessible gin.
Our products bring about a new paradigm to the world of spirits: imperfections make our bottles special. We have chosen to use up to 100% post-consumer recycled (PCR) glassbottles and 100% cotton labels, creating totally plastic-free products.
A small-batch production allows us to label and number each bottle by hand, in a perspective of environmental and economic sustainability.
