RIVO Gin uses botanicals handpicked in the meadows surrounding Lake Como. Foraging is the art of searching for botanicals in the wild. It reconnects you with nature and the places where our ingredients are taken. Three times a year, expert botanists walk miles along the lake’s mountainous slopes to harvest them. Once they’ve found the right spots, they pick only the best botanicals by hand. It takes lots of time and skill, but is also a deeply satisfying labor of love. Most excitingly, this combination of special botanicals has never before been distilled into a gin.
Salad burnet, winter savory, lemon balm and Breckland thyme are among the local herbs we forage and combine with juniper, coriander, cardamom and angelica to create RIVO Gin’s unique flavor bouquet.
Staying true to its Italian roots, RIVO Gin is an artisan product made with passion and love. The distillation happens in small batches and using only the finest botanicals. There are no additives, sugars or artificial ingredients. RIVO Gin is 43% alcohol by volume and is made from Italian grain alcohol.
