XORIGUER is the name of the old windmill, built in 1784, in which many generations of the PONS family had converted bushels of wheat into white flour. British sailors stationed on the island of Menorca in the 19th century craved gin, a spirit that had gained popularity in their home country, and thus began distilling it from local agriculture and imported juniper berries. The Pons family eventually gained recognition from the CEE as a Geographically Protected Gin, Xoriguer Gin or Gin de Mahon. It continues its family heritage in Ibiza today.
Gin Notes: One of 3 designated EU appellations for Gin (Plymouth and Vilniaus d?inas are the others), this style of gin has been produced on the Isle of Menorca since the 18th Centrury. Xoriguer was established in the early 20th Century and remains family-owned to this day.
A neutral spirit made from grapes is the base spirit and the gin is vapor infused with juniper berries in a wood-fired pot still. The gin is bottled at 41% abv and no additives, colorings, or sweeteners are added.
