- Alto Colchagua, Chile
The distillery, located approximately 3,281 feet above sea level at the foot of the Andes Mountains in the region of Colchagua, producing Nix Gin in small copper stills, ensuring maximal control of the distillation temperature and delicate handling of each of its ingredients.
Their energy-efficient processes feature state-of-the-art equipment and electronic temperature control that minimize the loss of thermal energy. All wastewater and organic waste are then efficiently treated and reused for the irrigation of flora and conservation of the surrounding nature. Their bottles are made from 90% recycled glass. Their endemic botanicals are organic and grow wild.
Master distiller, Gustavo Carvallo distills the gin in a 400-liter alembic still, where they mix the macerate together with botanicals in the gin basket. Two 50-liter stills allow him to create distillates from separate botanicals with a high degree of precision and patience, in order to best extract their essentials oils. Nix gin infuses for at least one month in stainless steel barrels at a controlled temperature, which allows the different flavors and aromas to blend together perfectly.
Nix gin uses only fresh botanicals from the Colchagua region, working with small producers and gatherers of organic botanicals and pays them fairly.
