Deep in the forests of Southwest France, on crisp winter mornings, shadows would appear in this mist, moving slowly and attentively between the towering hazelnut and oak trees. As they come closer, the shadows start taking shape and an elderly man is seen with a basket in his one hand and an enormous hog at his side, ever searching for the elusive Périgord “black winter” truffle. Now, after 200 years, the truffles have made their way south and chose to settle surreptitiously in the rich soil of Southern Africa, daring us to unearth its secrets and flavours.
KWV’s master distillers took on the challenge and created a singular world-class gin infused with the enigmatic Black Winter truffle and blended with 13 signature botanicals. They created a unique experience of a flavoursome and luscious London Dry gin exuding complexity.
Cruxland Gin infused with Black Winter Truffles is a tantalising combination of warm spice, citrus and floral finished off with the infusion of Black Winter Truffles which adds to the earthy notes.
