Gin Mare Mediterranean Gin - 70cl | 42.7% ABV

£38.00
NVGINMARE

Gin Mare is a Mediterranean gin from Spain made with four principal botanicals: basil, thyme, rosemary and arbequina olives.

Up to 15kgs of olives are used per distillation batch due to the low yield of arbequina olives when juiced. Citrus, cardamom and coriander along with thyme, basil, rosemary and juniper berries are all grown on the family’s land.

The citrus is a custom blend of sweet oranges from Seville, bitter oranges from Valencia and lemons from Lleida. The citrus fruit is macerated for an entire year in neutral spirit of around 50% ABV. Most of the other botanicals are macerated separately for around 36 hours and then individually distilled in a 250lt Florentine still. The distillation takes around 4.5 hours, usually producing around 150lts of the heart of the liquid. After six separate distillations have taken place, they are blended with more neutral spirit and water to create Gin Mare.

This is a very herbal and aromatic gin with citrus and a hint of spice.
