Moletto Spirits

‘Today the Moletto winery boasts a friendly team, which only a family can have, driven by enthusiasm and entrepreneurship, while remaining faithful at all times to our roots. These roots are embedded in the land and require dedication as well as care, passion and hard work. These roots are what we call “wine culture”, by which we mean they are a gift from the land to those who love, cherish and respect it.

A gift that the Stival family are happy to share with our friends, who are always welcome to the Motta di Livenza estate to visit the wine cellar and the vineyards.

And to sample together the aromas, the fascination and the culture of this centuries-old history.’

Moletto Gin

A traditional gin spirit enhanced by craft quality distillation and a creative Italian flair. From the Veneto Region, the Italian region most associated with distillation, comes an original premium gin that combines the flavors of carefully chosen juniper berries from the Alps and the Mediterranean coast. What makes this gin special and uniquely Italian is the flavor addition from the finest, ripe, Italian tomatoes!

Production
Selected mixed grains are distilled in artisanal copper stills to produce the alcohol base for this gin. Separate infusions of juniper berries, from the Alps and from the Mediterranean coast, are allowed to steep and impart their particular flavors so they can be blended together with the grain alcohol to form a traditional gin spirit base. What makes this gin completely original is the addition of tomatoes, which give the gin a natural taste and aroma that is unmistakably Italian.

Tasting
Brilliant and crystal clear. A burst of juniper first greets you followed by sunny, ripe Italian tomatoes, then notes of rosemary, mint, basil and a hint of citrus.
Enjoy Moletto Gin alone, in any classic gin cocktail, or in a new creation of your own.

“Clear color. aromas of mango and passion fruit paste, Maria cookies with frosting, chicha morada, and overripe tomato and sage with a silky, vibrant, fruity sweet light body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long raspberry and mint, dried citrus melange, clove and hint of juniper, and orange sherbet finish. An interesting savory-sweet gin to add a tropical feel to craft cocktails.”
