Xoriguer Mahón Gin Review

This gin hails from the Spanish island of Menorca, where it's made to very specific, archaic practices. The wood-fired alembic stills for distillation range in age from 70 to 270 years old. Meanwhile, the juniper that gives the gin its signature profile is aged for 1 to 4 years in open crates at the distillery, ensuring lengthy contact with salty air. These details combine to provide a gin with a standout, distinctive character. It pops with citrus, prickles with pepper, and serves a subtle salty spray on the palate. Serve in an equal parts Martini with sherry. Garnish with both a twist and olive.
