The Argalà Distillery is found in a countryside barn at the foot of Italy’s breathtaking Maritime Alps. Their products are an expression of this environment, using botanicals from the peaks of their mountains to the depths of their seas.
Globetrotter meets a Mountaineer
Gin al Genepy carves out a journey inwards from the international, global-reach of gin, to the intimate and local mountainous climates where Genepy is produced. By taking the universally recognised formula of juniper-infused spirit, and combining it with the regional botanicals that characterise the maritime Alps, Argala’s take on gin carves out a distinctive style that captures the alpine character of the Piedmont region of Italy while working within a well-established spirit category.
Maceration in the Mountains
Gin al Genepy takes a cold-compounding approach to gin production, infusing the classical style of juniper-forward gin with the spirit of the maritime Alps. This is achieved by a lengthy maceration process, where key botanicals like genepy flowers are left to steep in wheat distillate for up to six months. The delicate and non-invasive form of maceration allows for the delicate, floral aromatics of the alpine botanicals to be captured with being denatured under stress of heat or pressure, resulting in a gin that is exceedingly fresh and complex.
The Brains Behind It
Argalà was created by Piero and Enrio - two childhood friends and classmates who grew up together in Boves, Italy. Curious from an early age, their creativity moved from the playground to the kitchen, where they spent many long evenings experimenting with different ideas and ingredients. Since the start of Argalà’s journey in 2011, they’ve produced their spirits with the same passion and homemade approach that they’ve had since they were boys.More on the Brand
