One of the most famous and respected gastronomic icons is the white truffle. This underground mushroom really enjoys a special respect and that's seen on their price, as it is one of the most expensive mushrooms in the world. This year there was an interesting collaboration between two Istrian brands – Karlic Truffles and Aura Distillery, producing gin with macerated white truffle. This is the first gin in the world which is made this way – Jutarnji.hr reports.
Since gin is a very popular drink, especially lately, they decided to unite these two loves, and that's how White Truffle Gin came into being.
The white truffle harvest season starts around September and can extend all the way through the New Year and they are just working on a second edition of the product. As Jutarnji.hr writes, zhe first one came out two months ago and they have made 222 bottles, each numbered since they have collected 222 truffles, and can be purchased at a price of 750 kuna at the Aura distillery and Karlic Truffles. They have already shipped them all around the world.
