TRU2 ORGANIC GIN

Aromatic Mediterranean lavender, raffia and juniper lead the olfactory charge. On the palate these tones evolve to include an herbal bounty with an incredibly active mouth-feel that is nicely full bodied; the juniper shares center stage with citrus as each botanical reveals itself in turn to enhance the overall balance. The finish lingers in a complicated, recherché and deeply enjoyable manner.

I love the concepts that are employed by this company:

Organic: TRU spirits are certified organic, field to bottle.

The flavors are real infusions (infused by the owners, employees and friends) of whole, organic ingredients-- not extracts.

Ecological: The packaging is light and sustainable — everything is recycled, recyclable or biodegradable.

Renewable: They plant a tree for every bottle sold to replenish forests...and paper stocks.

There are so many simple ways to improve how we handle our environment, how about a drink made with scrumptious gin???
