‘Stuzzi Per Negroni Gin’ is Italian restaurant Stuzzi’s first spirit, made with the help of the Leeds Hedonist distillery. The spirit is distilled with various flowers, including Negroni, Sicilian Orange, Bergamot, Lavender and Cinnamon. Stuzzi is known for experimenting with recipes to add their distinct flair, as the brand produces most of its menu items in-house. ‘Stuzzi Per Negroni Gin’ uses simple ingredients blended with the unique taste of negroni to enhance flavors and limit the initial bitter taste. Stuzzi created the spirit to make it a staple in the liquor industry.
“[…] Realizing how vulnerable the service sector is to lockdowns, we have used this time to focus on how we can diversify and protect the business. While supping lockdown negroni after lockdown negroni, we started thinking about how we could perfect this ruby red nectar and the idea for the first Stuzzi gin was born,” said Jimbob Phillips, co-founder and director of Stuzzy.
