Cobalto - 17

Cobalto 17 - Douro is the name of the Gin produced by two portuguese - Edgar Rocha and Miguel Guedes - who had the dream of making an original gin from the UNESCO world heritage wine region. This Gin has a balance and freshness that comes from the alliance between artisanal production methods - distilled in a traditional still and bottled in an artisanal way - and incorporating six botanicals thought to ensure the integrity of a classic gin but with the irreverence of a new generation with fruity and seductive aromas. There are 6 botanicals used: verbena, spearmint/peppermint, juniper and cardamom. This will be the first Gin fully produced in the Douro region.
