A Gin with zero alcohol? Hey, don't knock it until you've tried it.
The story behind Vera Spirits, a non-alcoholic distillery, founded by 3 Slovenian chefs and restaurateurs from Ljubljana, is the story of the aunt of one of the founders – Vera. Vera was born in a port city in the North Adriatic to a family of successful distillers. The dream, right? She spent her youth meeting all sorts of fascinating people and travelling the Mediterranean. (We’re jelly, too!)
At home in the world of refined tastes and aromas, it got Vera thinking the different personalities she met along the way were a lot like Spirits – there, too, the flavors and smells were a combo of different components. So, this became her life quest: exploring the perfect tastes for each personality type. Vera Spirits picks up on this mission and explores local, seasonal botanicals, various distillation methods and spring water from the Alps to create unique blends. But why non-alcoholic, we hear someone insisting? (It’s us, we’re someone.)
Vera says that’s because your spirit is at its purest when you’re sober, duuh. Vera Gino still contains all the things that make you go "Wow, I better slow down with this one", only now, there’s no reason you should. Bottled at zero proof (Man, it feels weird to say that!), it’s distilled from local juniper berries, angelica, cardamom, bay leaf, and citrus. All the Mediterranean essentials are there, so you’ll get a citrusy and floral nose with a fabulous earthy and piney palate with a bitter finish. Sneer at tradition and have a different kind of G&T.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Vera Gino and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
