VII HILLS ITALIAN DRY GIN JOINS THE BOUTIQUE BRANDS FAMILY
ITALIAN DRY GIN
ORIGINI, TRADIZIONI & SPIRITO ITALIANO. Inspired by ancient Romans’ culinary and cultural traditions, the seven botanicals, which naturally grow on the seven hills which surround the Italian capital, are blended into a delicately balanced libation, that gives life to a versatile liquid full of history, traditions and… magic.
VII HILLS Italian Dry Gin is an aromatic and fruity juniper spirit, lightly citrusy on the nose.
On the palate, sweet pomegranate notes with hints of roman chamomile, perfectly balanced by the earthy freshness of the celery.
Juniper was used to cure diseases and over the centuries it has been used as a diuretic, an antiseptic and a cure for digestive problems.
The Romans valued it more for cooking than for religion, although much superstition was connected with it. The Romans also thoughts that celery could prevent hangover.
ROSA CANINA, ROSE HIP
The full flower was used as an ornament, with its petals to aromatise wine and to produce therapeutic rose oil.
Chamomile tea was used by the Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians as a salve for wounds to expedite healing, being known for its anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antioxidant effects.
CITRUS SINENSINS, BLOOD ORANGE
Oranges were occasionally depicted in Roman art, being a symbol of wealth and fertility
Ancient Romans considered it a delicacy and an aphrodisiac. Artichoke was also attributed to being effective in securing the birth of boys.
Known in Latin as “seeded apple”, pomegranate was grown in the “hortus” and considered a medical healing and symbol of fertility

VII HILLS wants to celebrate its recipe with the flavours, the traditional Italian methods and reveal the importance of old rituals.
VII HILLS Italian dry gin is made in Moncalieri (near Torino), by Vergnano family: the master distillers distill VII HILLS with the same traditional manners as hundreds years ago.
VII HILLS is created following seven steps that give to it the body, the strength and the unique Italian flavour.
The Roman botanicals after sourced and infused in a idro-alcoholic solution, are distilled with a sugar beet neutral spirit in a vacuum pot still. Pomegranate, Roman chamomile and celery are then added to give VII HILLS a traditional Italian accent.
