Quality, aroma, and velvety texture.

Tato Giovannoni worked in his father’s restaurant from his youth. He went on to become one of the most famous bartenders in Argentina and a sought-after cocktail consultant (how do we get that job?). It was only a matter of time before he opened his own bar and then stepped out to create his own spirits. Apostoles Gin is his first, and so far only offering, but we think he will have more to come.

Since Tato is Argentinian, he set out to make a Gin that reflected the flavours and traditions of his native land. One of the traditional drinks of South America is called “Mate.” It’s made from yerba mate — a native plant in the holly family that has been harvested by the local Guaraní peoples for centuries. Apostoles Gin has juniper, but it sits in the background. Yerba mate, eucalyptus, and peppermint step up front, and the effect is remarkable. Made in small, 200-liter batches in the Sol do Los Andes distillery, it tastes “warmer” and has an almost chocolate aroma that brings something exceptional and new to the classic Gin.

Andrew
Andrew,
Smooth and well balanced. Blends well with other botanicals for an exceptional gin and tonic (particularly cucumber, rosemary, and basil).
Mary
Mary,
I really enjoyed this gin! This one is smooth and and I loved that it didn't taste like every other gin on the market. As a fan of yerba mate teas, this one was a joy to try in mixed drinks. It is a good balance in drinks that have a touch of spice and sour.
Michael
Michael,
The perfect gin! I love sipping at room temp, or with a dash of chilled ginger ale, but not too much as to mask the flavor of the gin. My girlfriend hates the taste of alcohol and mostly likes sweet cocktails to mask the taste, but she loves to do shots of chilled Principe De Los Apostoles Mate Gin! The bottle is only a few days old and already halfway gone! I'm buying more so we never run out. I recommend starting sipping at room temp, and experimenting with different preparations, but don't discount just a plain room temp sip because it is delicious!
