Customer Rating
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 potstills from distilled wine (eau-de-vie) rather than the more usual grain-based distillate, and is rested in American oak barrels before bottling.

    First tried this gin forty years ago! Still as good as ever. Made yet another trip to Menorca this year and managed to bring back a couple of litre bottles this year. Wonder how long they'll last me?! Best gin ever, in my opinion! Just the job with tonic from the fridge and a slice of lemon from the freezer.

    Quite simply the best gin I have ever tasted. Wonderful aromas and not harsh like some gins I have tasted. Great with tonic and has to be a slice of lemon. Good too with authentic still lemonade, then you have a Pomada.

    Very nice gin. Unusually distilled from grape alcohol, rather than grain. I just returned from Minorca and visited the distillery. Do visit if you are going to the island, They give you a tour and leave you with a shot glass and an amazing array of bottles containing different flavoured spirits - coffee, herb, chocolate (Yes! Chocolate gin!) but with no-one around to care how many tasters one has!!

    I don''t like gin, but I love this stuff. We toured the distillery on menorca, it was very interesting. The alcohol is distilled from wine, with a unique process that makes this gin amazingly good.

  • Gary t 18 June 2014

    A revelation if you like gin wonderfully dry incredibly refreshing you won't make a better g&t or with lemon as a pomada worth every penny definitely deserves the title best gin in the world

  • Andrew A 4 January 2014

    A very special and uniquely flavoured gin. Makes a beautiful G&T or as a "Pomada" with Bitter Lemon in the Menorcan style. My favourite Gin.

  • David H 25 November 2013

    The British gave the Menorceans gin and they gave us mayonnaise. I think they got the best of the deal. This is super gin,distinctive flowery taste which goes to make a fantastic G&T. Try it with Fanta, try it neat at room temperature or why not overnight it in the deep freeze for an icy kick. Visiting Mahon? The distillery will let you drink as much as you like for free but if you have to pay for it's worth it.
