WHAT HAPPENS WHEN GIN MEETS SPARKLING? Kaava happens
The sophistication of Spirits and the elegance and exquisiteness of Sparkling Wine.
Kaava Sparkling gin is the result of an unlikely encounter that could only flourish in the city of Barcelona, where tradition meets modernity and gives birth to creativity.
This is a unique spirit distilled from the grapes Macabeo, Karel·lo and Parellada. The traditional blend for making the famous Spanish Sparkling Wine, Cava. The creation of this new category of drink is aimed by following an unconventional process of 4 stages, combining details and secrets of both worlds.
STAGE I: CAVA
- The wine comes from the pressing of different grape varieties of the Cava region. This pressing forms a Mosto that after fermented provides what is known as “Lías de Vino”. We rectify up to a 96º graduation eliminating all alcoholic impurities to obtain a neutral wine alcohol.
STAGE II: BOTANICALS
- We macerate juniper berries and coriander grown in Spain on the basis of vinous alcohol. They are left to macerate and then distilled obtaining the gin flavoured base.
STAGE III: GIN
- We mix the wine alcohol distilled and rectified with the juniper and coriander distillate. We lower the alcohol content of the Gin up to 40,4% vol. with the product obtained from the fermentation of the grapes juice.
STAGE IV: SECRET
- As traditionally used in cava elaboration, the expedition liqueur is mixed with apple, pear, apricot flavours for Sparkling Gin and with raspberry flavour for Sparkling Gin Rosé. This mixture is then added to the prepared gin. It is lightly carbonated and we have the finished product.
ON THE NOSE: Very clean and intense aroma of cava. Aromas of fresh fruit such as apple, pear and apricot.
ON THE PALATE: Harmonious and appetizing in the mouth with great balance. Complex, delicate, beautiful harmony between wine, fruit and juniper. Large structure, freshness and intensely long-lasting.
Kaava can be enjoyed as it comes, but it is even better mixed in a superb cocktail. Our personal favourite is White Kaava with Vichy Lemon Flavoured water for a refreshing and sophisticated drink full of complex flavours that you can have ready in 30 seconds at home. However, the producer website is full of other cocktail ideas that will surprise you.
Kaava is the perfect drink to make an unforgettable party or a festive aperitif.
