THE IDEA

  • In 2017 Mauro Schiavo, barman and butcher, begins to experiment with themed evenings with fine cuts of Fassona veal combined with gin and tonic.​ Location: TASTA, butcher's shop with evening cuisine near Turin, in Piedmont.​

  • With the desire to create an ideal distillate to be paired with cuts of meat, he dedicates several years to the choice of botanicals: Juniper, Genepy, Artemisia, Thyme, Achillea Millefoglie, Angelica, Tansy and Zedoaria.​

  • He called it BUGIN, inspired by the word "bocin" which means "calf" in Piedmontese.

DISTILLATION

  • BUGIN (45% vol) is a compound gin. Some herbs are distilled through the hot fill method in a bain-marie still and a few bleached extracts are added to the finished product. One of these extracts is obtained from the flower of the alpine genepi plant to give the distillate a floral and non-invasive note.​

  • The blend rests for a month in stainless steel tanks and, at the end, filtration and bottling take place.​

  • Intense on the nose, balsamic, aromatic, slightly fruity and dry to the palate. The most persistent perfume is that of thyme.

KITCHEN AND FOOD PAIRING

  • BUGIN gin gives its best in food pairing. Thanks to its herbs, which are rarely used in cooking, it is complementary to the tastes of meat.​

  • Used during cooking, it makes meat dishes, such as roast or sliced meat, unique, and is ideal for both marinating and cooking.​

  • Used in mixing cocktails, BUGIN is a versatile gin. It releases its aromatic notes already in a simple gin and tonic with tonic water.​

BUGIN Old Tom Barrique barricato Limited Edition

DISTILLATION

  • BUGIN BARRIQUE OLD TOM (40% VOL) ​​is the result of a meticulous resting of the BUGIN gin in the oak barrel which, previously, held red Vermouth di Torino Superiore.​

  • It has a characteristic hint of wood, pleasant tannic notes and a delicate sweetness.​

  • BUGIN BARRIQUE EX THYME (45% VOL) has a bold character that comes from resting BUGIN gin in the oak barrel in which the thyme liqueur had been refined.

  • This refinement enhances the already fascinating note of thyme present in the distillate, allowing a delicate complexity and a marked aroma to emerge.

GIN CURED MEATS

  • They are the first and only gin salami and cold cuts on the market.

  • In our TASTA workshop, only top quality Piedmontese pigs are used. In cured meats such as cooked and raw salami, the BUGIN is placed inside the dough. 

  • 4 of them are made with Gin Tonic, Spritz, Turin Red Vermouth and Martini Cocktail.

  • In seasoned products, such as loin or coppa, BUGIN is used at the beginning of processing, then during salting and flavoring.
