Gin Mare

Gin Mare is produced with small batch distillation in a custom made still, to a strength of 42.7% ABV. The distillery is located in a 19th Century chapel on the outskirts of Barcelona along the Costa Dorada; the chapel is affiliated to the sea as it was used by local fisherman to offer prayers before setting sail. Inspired by its provenance, Gin Mare’s signature botanicals are the flavours synonymous with the region: Arbequina olives, rosemary, basil and thyme. The Mediterranean influence is also reflected in the packaging, a stylistic interpretation of the botanicals and sea. In addition to its four signature botanicals, the gin also incorporates juniper, coriander, cardamom and citrus; all the botanicals are macerated for over 36 hours and distilled separately before being blended by hand, other than the citrus elements (a blend of bitter oranges from Valencia, sweet oranges from Sevilla and lemons) which are macerated in clay jars for a year. The resulting profile is bold and rich, and with its accents of olive, Gin Mare challenges bartenders to create innovative Mediterranean Gin & Tonics or other Mediterranean style cocktails (Gin Mare is an excellent choice for martinis).
