Last Hope Calafate Gin



Last Hope Calafate Gin is a unique and distinctive spirit that reflects the rugged beauty and rich biodiversity of southern Patagonia. This gin stands out not only for its deep purple hue, which is quite extraordinary for a gin, but also for its complex flavor profile that is deeply rooted in the local Patagonian landscape.

The botanicals used in Last Hope Calafate Gin include Calafate (Berberis Microphylla), cardamom, cinnamon, coriander, juniper, lemon verbena, licorice root, maqui berry, orange peel, orris root, pepper, star anise, winter’s bark, and yerba mate. These ingredients combine to create a gin with rich red fruit notes on the nose, complemented by dark tannins and a refreshing bitterness in the mouth‚Äč‚Äč.

A key ingredient in this gin is the Calafate berry, an important part of Patagonian folklore. These berries are hand-foraged at their peak ripeness in the mountains and valleys around Puerto Natales. They are then soaked in the distillery’s Patagonian Dry Gin, infusing the spirit with their distinctive color and flavor. The result is a gin that offers a taste experience reminiscent of the dense forests, fragrant spring flowers, and fresh winds of Patagonia‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč.

The Last Hope Distillery, where this gin is produced, is known as the southernmost distillery in the world. Located in Puerto Natales, Chile, it is a place of wild adventures and ancient forests. The distillery, besides producing distinctive spirits like the Calafate Gin, is also committed to sustainability. It supports local communities and initiatives, such as the Torres del Paine Legacy Fund, with every bottle sold‚Äč‚Äč.

This gin is best enjoyed in citrus-forward cocktails, allowing its unique flavor profile to shine. The Last Hope Calafate Gin is a testament to the art of distillation and the uniqueness of its Patagonian origins, making it a must-try for those seeking a gin that is both traditional and adventurous.
