It's hard to call yourself a Gin enthusiast if you aren't well versed with this history rich brand! This distillery boasts a 200+ year history dating back to the Napoleonic Wars when British occupation in the Mediterranean birthed the necessity for a local gin distillery (to pay the sailors rations). The tipple became such a favourite with the locals it's been the community staple ever since.
Pronounced 'sho-ri-gair' and made on the island of Menorca, Spain - this is one of only two gins with its own EU designation of origin. The product was first made for British sailors who were stationed on the island between 1708 and 1802 and is still produced in the traditional way, distilled from a wine base and employing a selection of botanicals known only to the family. 38% Alc./Vol.
