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.

As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
