Characteristics Xoriguer Mahon Gin
This gin, a drink of Nordic origin, began being produced in Menorca (the Balaeric Islands) in the 18th century, when the taverns were full of English sailors and soldiers who demanded the drink that was fashionable in their homeland: gin. Some local craftsmen began importing juniper berries to satisfy the anxious customers. Just like that, gin was successfully established in Menorca, becoming a popular drink. Since 1784, the Pons family have been making Gin Xoriguer, with a traditional mentality. The name of the gin was chosen in honour of the old windmill used for successive generations of the Pons family, which now appears on the labels of their bottles. This gin is made by distilling high quality alcohol with juniper berries in copper stills combusted with fuel. The aromatic herbs that give the gin its personal and unique touch are the Pons family's best kept secret.
