Adamus is the jewel in the crown of Destilaria Levira and that’s what the name means: Adamus is diamond in ancient Greek. The distillery has almost a hundred years of history, dedicated mostly to the production of aguardente bagaceira. In the last few years, due to heavy investment in innovation and the development of new products, it created the Adamus range, entirely dedicated to super-premium products.
The epic poem of Adamus, the Gin, began with a study into the organoleptic properties of an initial selection of 86 botanicals. It was the team’s intention to have a detailed knowledge of the raw materials with which they would make Adamus to best complement the Baga grape, typical of the region and the central botanical in the recipe. After various distillations, separately and individually, indispensable tests, some steps forward, some back, the final formula was decided upon with 18 botanicals. The team spared no efforts For them, satisfactory was not enough, only excellence was their goal.
Adamus is a decidedly fruity Gin which escapes the more traditional rule of juniper being the central element. On the nose we note the gentle aroma of the grape and the exotic touch of the cardamom. Fruit occupies the central stage on the palate, with the grape being followed lightly by they citrus fruits, but also a more herbal side with the lavender and the sage.
