Argentinian brand Bosque Gin has launched a line of cask-rested gins called Refugios.

Inspired by the ‘rhythm of nature’, Refugios is dedicated to experimenting with the ‘patience and transformative power of time’ in the distillation and ageing process.

The gins are rested for six months in French oak casks, deepening the flavour of the spirits.

“In Bosque Refugios, our barrels rest in a cabin at 1,000 meters above sea level, in Patagonia, at the foot of the Andes. The altitude and reduced oxygen levels on one hand, and the low temperatures on the other, result in a delicate influence of the wood and the ambient oxygen on the liquid,” said Bruno Ananía, founder of Bosque.

“This subtly generates new flavours and aromas, which tend towards vanilla, nuts, and honey.”

The Refugios cask-rested gin will soon be available in the US.

Bosque Gin received a Gold and a Silver award for its Nativo and Alta Montaña expressions in The Gin Masters 2024.

“Every award or medal we receive is a source of pride. It reminds us of the beginnings of the project, and we continue with the same spirit, with the same desire to grow. We remain faithful to the production methods and the artisanal format. Flavour blends with sustainability, inspiring a greener and more conscious world,” added Ananía.

Bosque currently exports to more than 20 countries, including the US, UK, Mexico, Chile, Uruguay, Colombia, Brazil, France, Belgium, Denmark and Japan.

The company annually produces 450,000 bottles of gin and has distribution agreements with major companies in each region where it is present. These include AB InBev in Argentina and Compañía Dei Caraibi in Italy, the US, and Spain.
