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 18th century British occupation 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 oak barrels before bottling.
Possibly one of my favourite Gins, my cupboard is full of gin which are all nice, but this is just so smooth and so simple, no unusual twists or flavours. Just a clean, fresh tasting gin.
Yes. Wonderful gin unique taste. Not sharp. Very smooth.
First tasted Mahon Gin whilst on holiday in Menorca in 2010 and loved its fresh unique flavours. I was delighted to find it available at The Whiskey Exchange.
Made from grapes rather than grain, this gin has a distinctive flavour that many may find off-putting, in which case you're possibly drinking it wrong. Drink it as the Menorcans do, with Fanta Lemon rather than tonic, and it makes for a delicious aromatic long drink. Use cloudy lemonade if you can't get Fanta (Waitrose do a nice one made with Sicilian lemons, and solely using sugar as the sweetner). I'm guessing it adds a unique note to gin-based cocktails too, although I've never tried it.
My favourite gin for years. .. Glad to have found somewhere that regularly sells it!!
