Xorigeur Mahon Gin 70cl (40%)

Bottling Notes

Xoriguer is a classic gin from Mahon, Menorca, first made for British sailors whom were stationed on the island in the 18th century who were hankering for some gin (happens to all of us every once in a while). Rather than using a grain alcohol, Xoriguer is made from distilled wine and features juniper (obviously) as well as a secret selection of herbs which only the Pons family (the folks behind Xoriguer) could tell you what's included. It is briefly stored in casks before being bottled.

 

Tasting Notes

Xoriguer is still made in the same way, according to the 18th century recipe, commanding a devoted following of happy travellers. Mahon Gin is the result of a distillation in traditional copper stills, using high quality wine alcohol (eau-de-vie) and carefully selected juniper berries, which come from the neighbouring Mediterranean mountains, together with aromatic herbs

Perfect Serve

Delicious with a premium or Meditteranean tonic, tons of ice and lime.

It is also the key ingredient in Menorca's most popular cocktail drink, called pomada. An authentic pomada is made from Mahon Gin lemonade and ice.
