The latest addition to the gin category, Ginato Italian Gin, has secured a full product listing with Ocado meaning all four of the much-anticipated expressions are available to purchase via the online retailer.
The expressions include; Ginato Pinot Grigio (combining Pinot Grigio grape and lemon citrus flavours), Ginato Melograno (combining Barbera grape and pomegranate), Ginato Clementino (combining Nebbiolo grape and Clementine oranges), and Ginato Pompelmo (combining Sangiovese Grape and Sicilian pink grapefruits).
The Ginato range was created to capture the true essence of Italy and does so using its trinity of provenance. The finest Italian grapes (Pinot Grigio, Sangiovese, Nebbiolo and Barbera) have been selected from the wine-growing regions that circumnavigate the idyllic northern lake, the juniper is sourced from the rolling hills of Tuscany and the citrus is picked from the Mediterranean climate of southern Italy.
Blessed with over 50 years of production heritage, the distillery is situated near Ravenna, within the northern Italian province of Emilia Romagna.
Ginato Italian Gin is exclusively distributed in the UK and Ireland through Kirker Greer Spirits. Steven Pattison, CEO of Kirker Greer Spirits said:
”We are incredibly proud to partner with Ocado, who are continually supporting innovation, new brands and greater choice for their customers. The listing marks a significant milestone for Ginato, making it available in the UK grocery channel and increasing brand presence nationwide.
Italy has some of the finest ingredients – juniper berries and citrus fruits for example, which we knew we could combine to make an outstanding gin. In experimenting with the recipe, we decided to add Italian grapes in the blend and the result is a collection of unique gins that really showcase the best of Italian produce. We hope that the Ginato Italian Gin range will transport the consumer to their favourite part of Italy.”
Gary Hyde, Ocado spirits buyer, said: “We are delighted to be able to extend our gin range to include Ginato and be able to offer our customers a greater portfolio of gin brands and high-quality choices. The unique flavours and striking packaging will appeal to Ocado shoppers and support the continued consumer interest in the popular flavoured gin category. “
Ginato Italian Gin is available to purchase online at Ocado.com with an RRP of £28 for 70cl and bottled at 43%.
