How soon should I drink Caleño?

Caleño has a one year best before guidance if unopened. Once opened we
recommend consuming within 3 months, however you do not need to refrigerate, we just recommend keeping it at room temperate.

 

How do you make Caleño and how does that differ to gin?

Gin starts off as pure ethanol (a highly rectified spirit). Botanicals, such as juniper are then added through a re-distillation process, producing a really potent, botanical alcoholic liquid, known as gin, which is usually collected at a strength of 80% ABV - this is then diluted down with water to the right ABV.  Caleño’s ‘Inca berry & Juniper’ follows a similar process to gin, however we aren’t looking to create an alcohol, but capture the delicate botanical flavours that you’d normally find in a spirit. A selection of 10 carefully chosen botanicals are gently distilled, in a beautiful still, using well recognised botanicals such as; juniper, cardamom, coriander, Sicilian Lemon, and of course the Inca berry – our star ingredient. We use a process of ‘steam distillation’ to ensure we capture the essence of each botanical.

 

Why is your bottle priced at £24.99?

To create Caleño we source ten botanicals from all over the world, and spent over a year crafting and perfecting our uniquely blended recipe. It has taken a long time to develop a distinctive drink that carries unique flavours, and that isn’t alcoholic. There is also long production time associated with producing this type of drink.
