Gin Mare is produced in a small fishing village on the Costa Dorada in Spain using botanicals all sourced within the Mediterranean area. Alongside ‘traditional’ botanicals juniper, bitter orange peel, seville orange peel, lemon peel, cardamon, and coriander seed. The four ‘Mediterranean’ botanicals are evident immediately upon nosing this gin, with the rosemary in particular standing out. However, the juniper is still playing a starring role and is complemented rather than dominated by the other botanicals. There is a lightness created by the citrus and basil with a savory olive undertone. The savory, herbal elements are immediately evident when tasting neat, with the rosemary again taking center stage alongside the classic juniper backbone. this is a gin that not only offers something different, but challenges the preconceptions of what gin should taste like.
