Amazon moves into spirits with Tovess brandBy Nicola Carruthers
Online retailer Amazon has released Tovess Single Batch Crafted Dry Gin, the first expression in a new line of spirits.
Tovess Single Batch Crafted Dry Gin is the retail giant’s first spirit and will be available to buy exclusively through Amazon.
According to Amazon, the Tovess brand is “dedicated to curating expertly distilled spirits from around the world”.
Tovess was based on a traditional London Dry gin and is made at a distillery on the outskirts of Birmingham, UK. It was produced using 18th century copper pot stills that are described as “among some of the oldest in the country”.
The new premium gin has been made in a single batch distillation and has been infused with individually distilled lime and grapefruit peels, said to give it “fruity notes and a smooth Mediterranean taste”.
The gin is said to have a “fresh and fruity profile” and is recommended served over ice with tonic water, and garnished with grapefruit, cucumber or lime.
Amazon said that further expressions “will be added over the course of time”.
Bottled at 41.5% ABV, Tovess Single Batch Crafted Dry Gin is priced at £24.99 (US$32.44) per 700ml bottles. It is available to buy in the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy.
Amazon Prime members also benefit from receiving the expression through one-day delivery.
