It’s time to fuel the dream. 

Engine Gin is the perfect taste explosion. It is a wheat alcohol, made with spring water and Damask rose. On top, the balsamic notes of Juniperus, completed by the fresh sage flavour. The softly harshness of liquorice give it the perfect taste balance.


Engine Gin is inspired by the world of motors. The ingredients include Alta Langa Sage to chill, Lemon from the Amalfi Coast to energise, Liquorice roots from Calabria to digest, Damask rose to relax, Spring Water to refresh, Essential oils to make it essential, and Juniperus berries and wheat alcohol to make the gin.


Engine is a London dry gin hand-crafted by master distillers, produced in small batches and bottled by hand in the Alta Langa region, in north-western Italy. Its formula is linked with Italian and Piedmont tradition, paying tribute to rosolios, cordials and liquors made from sage and lemon which in the past were ancient digestive remedies. It is produced with 100% organic Italian ingredients.

Engine was born from an idea of Paolo Dalla Mora, entrepreneur in the fashion and spirits sectors, ENGINE celebrates an imaginary made of oil and fuel cans, motocross races and racing vehicles, in memory of the great myths of the 1980’s such as the timeless Dodge Charger, the car baptised the General Lee in the successful TV series The Dukes of Hazzard.
