Mahon Xoriguer Gin
£27.99

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.

Description

Details

A cult gin from Mahon in Menorca, Xoriguer is one of the only gins in the world (alongside Plymouth) to have a geographical indication, Gin de Menorca. Gin has been made on Menorca since the time of the British occupation in the 18th century and Xoriguer commands a devoted following of happy travellers. Unusually, Xoriguer is made in wood-fired pot stills from distilled wine (eau-de-vie) rather than the more usual grain-based distillate, and is rested in American oak barrels before bottling.
