The important collaborations of NIO Cocktails continue and this time is involved a young and promising Italian brand that produces an exceptional quality gin: GIASS, the first London Dry Gin in Milan.
A 100% made in Italy idea, which shares with NIO Cocktails the attention to the quality of selected products, craftsmanship and passion that generates innovative ideas.
They together create a box composed by 4 exclusive cocktails, all based on Gin GIASS and perfectly mixed with many others ingredients which create 4 unique drinks, which revised traditional flavors or create something new.
GIASS gin comes from the idea of five friends who, accustomed to sharing the aperitif ritual, decide to create their gin, a London Dry Gin to be precise and give it a name that represents all its identity: GIASS ("ice" in Milanese dialect) the essential element for a premium cocktail, which helps the 18 botanicals present in the recipe to release all their flavor.
GIASS Gin is produced in Trentino using only natural ingredients, as required by the London Dry Gin disciplinary, which provides that no artificial element is added, only possible addition is sugar, but in well-defined quantities.
The 18 botanicals contribute to give the GIASS gin different aromatic notes. It starts with juniper, coriander and angelica that are offered as a basis to enhance all the other flavors. The fruity part is given by golden apple and orange naturally dried at low temperatures. Then we find a floral note that comes from: rose petals, chamomile flowers, violet and orange and karkadè. The ground almond, fennel and mint form the mineral part of the recipe, while the citrate soul comes from citrus, cardamom and lemon balm. Finally, the woody aroma, from cassia and thyme.
In short, a complex formulation and studied in detail, to give this gin a bouquet of harmonious flavors, natural and perfectly balanced.

EL PROFESSOR: Negroni signed by GIASS
A Negroni revisited, a different touch, but that does not change the decisive and direct soul of the historic cocktail of the Count.
The story of this cocktail begins in 1919 in Florence when Count Camillo Negroni, a habitual Caffè Casoni, abandoned his usual aperitif, the Americano, and asked the bartender, Folco Scarselli, a sprinkling of gin instead of the usual seltz. This variation was so popular that, from that moment on, the American cocktail began to be called "the American in the manner of Count Negroni". This is how Negroni was born.
