If Uncle Val is anything like this Gin, he must be a great guy. 

At the heart 3 Badge Beverage Corp. is August Sebastiani — fourth 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?

Uncle Val’s Botanical Gin is named after August’s favorite uncle in Italy — Valerio Cecchetti. Evidently, Uncle Val is a smart guy who grows fresh herbs and vegetables at home and the botanical mix was culled from his garden.

This includes juniper, lemon, sage, lavender, and cucumber. Uncle Val's Gin is perfectly balanced, and August says that’s because they don’t just toss all of the botanicals in the infuser. Each one is steeped for a different amount of time to get things just right. We say “job well-done,” and most people agree. In fact, it pulled down a rare 96 points from Tasting Panel Magazine along with a long list of accolades and awards.

Few Gin Distillers Make Their Own Alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral spirit: A commodity that in distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.

Jeff,
This is one of the best Gin’s I’ve tried! Perfect for sipping, with just a hint of cucumber. I’ll be purchasing this one again. Cheers

Sal,
Cucumber, lemon, and lavender are straight on the nose and easy to pick out even before reading the botanicals used. Unique gin that is really in a class by itself and stand out. Excellent gin for the price point and highly recommended for any gin lover for something different then the average gin.

Fred,
One of the best sipping gins out there, if you like a lot of flavor. Very complex with lots of different flavors coming out on the tongue. Good finish as well.

Craig,
This is the most black-pepper-forward gin I have ever tasted. There are some citrus and herby notes, and a juniper background. But I keep coming back to the pepper. It wrecks some cocktails, enhances others.

Jarad,
A fun to drink gin, great separation of flavors, strong cucumber reminiscent of Hendrick’s, but maybe more vibrant both in taste and smell. Flavor spiral very good on this one, sage is more subtle than cucumber and lemon than picture suggests to me anyway, sweetnesss is pronounced, but at just the right level to not be overbearing. This would be a great gin for a tasting box for anyone trying to develop their gin palate, all around phenomenal!
