A rich and floral Gin with lingering notes of cucumber and rosewater.
At the heart 3 Badge Beverage Corp. is August Sebastiani — forth generation grandson of Samuele Sebastiani, founder of Sebastiani Winery in Sonoma. This family has been making premium adult beverages for a LONG time. Interestingly, Sebastiani Winery was the only California winery that didn’t close during Prohibition. How’d they pulled that off? Anyway, these guys keep cranking out some of the best craft Spirits, PERIOD. Currently, they produce a range of Gins, Whiskies, and Rums and you should try them all.
Every Uncle Val’s is a wonderful taste of glorious Spirit — each one a Gin-apalooza in the glass. Uncle Val’s Restorative Gin is perfectly named because it has notes that remind you of a day at the spa. Picture a natural, dry Gin with soothing notes of pine, cucumber, and roses blooming in the glass over a bass note of coriander. And like its sister Gins, it's bottled old-shool at 45% ABV.
The Uncle Val’s line of products is named after August’s favorite uncle in Italy — Valerio Cecchetti. Evidently, Uncle Val was a doctor who grew fresh herbs and vegetables at home — and elements of the botanical mix was culled from his garden.
