Made from the secret recipe of Don Vincezno first created in Positano during the 1950s boom in Italy.
Our Gin is dry but unique, distilled with a secret array of botanicals including rosemary and our illustrious amalfi lemons. After distillation we add a touch of treasured amalfi lemon oil to add to its perfume like aroma and delicate palate.
Don Vincenzo Staibano was a stylish and charismatic playboy from Amalfi, known to many as “Il Gaga”. Surrounded by such outstanding natural beauty and unique architecture, Don Vincenzo unsurprisingly delighted in the dolce vita of the Amalfi Coast. As well as tending to his vast amount of lemon groves, he was a master at creating liqueurs and spirits which he started producing back in the 1930s. His concoctions were often served for all those who attended his famous, lavish parties in his lemon groves on the Amalfi Coast during the 1950s boom in Italy. After years of excessive fun and gambling, Don Vincenzo’s lemon groves sadly became decrepit and his production of alcohol dried up.
Some years later “Il Gaga’s” great-grandson who holds his acclaimed recipes brought back production to the Amalfi coast, reopening Casa Staibano for all to once again enjoy.
