It was the early 1950s when Silvio Carta founded the eponymous company in Baratili San Pietro, immediately devoting himself to the most traditional of the local wine productions: Vernaccia di Oristano. An amber gold that embodies nobility and generosity, which immediately charms and conquers the palate.
The skilful vinification, the long resting in a barrel and the careful and loving care by the Maison Silvio Carta have made this incredible wine an authentic glory of Sardinian oenology.
Sixty years have passed since then, but Vernaccia still remains a family matter. But now there is more. After more than half a century, Silvio, together with his son Elio – the latter at the head since 1972 – still devote themselves to the production of the greater Vernaccia di Oristano DOC. However, thanks to a careful look towards innovation and the loving care of very deep passions, today the Silvio Carta company is also synonymous with Mirto ‘riserva’, London Dry Gin, Vermouth and other typical spirits distributed all over the world as precious examples of an ancient and luxuriant land: today, the world smells of juniper, myrtle and citrus fruits from Sardinia thanks to the excellence of Silvio Carta.
Faithful and passionate. Pigskin Silver is a fascinating gin, like the Mediterranean it contains. It is fresh and spicy. Soft, round and balsamic. A gin of great experience that never disappoints.
In the mouth, it is smooth and fresh. Transparent and clear.Hints of talc and cotton candy.
Pigskin Silver is a London Dry Gin that does not betray. The word ‘Silver’ in the name is not by chance: it contains maturity and experience. It’s a safe haven. It’s a distilled product that releases security and peace.
Pigskin Silver smells good with a signature of wild fennel, myrtle leaves, juniper, mastic and Salvia Desoleana sage. Nutmeg, butter and vanilla are those spicy notes that tell something more, but not too much, of this excellent Gin to be explored.
