Xoriguer (pronounced "cho-ree-ger") is the name of a windmill that has existed since 1874. Gin Xoriguer has evolved from a local curiosity to a product that is recognized and demanded worldwide for its quality and attractive bottles. As far as its production process is concerned, the master distiller places his trust only in natural ingredients and refuses to use artificial additives. Whether for a long drink or a cocktail, this Mahón, Menorca gin is the result of the craftsmanship of a family that has been distilling its gins for generations.
Gin Xoriguer is the result of the distillation, in the old copper stills, of high-quality wine alcohol with selected juniper berries from the mountains of neighbouring Mediterranean lands, and other aromatic herbs.
Gin Xoriguer is sweet, fine and dry with a marked taste of juniper and a very delicate woody taste. Its deep taste remains delicate in the mouth. This is a different kind of London-style gin.
It is generally drunk alone, cold, with ice or in combination with soft drinks. For the Gin Tonic, serve with 2 mint leaves and lemon zest.
However, the real Menorcan way to drink this Balearic gin is to mix it with cloudy lemonade. Gin amb llimonada or pomada as it's called there is an incredibly zingy summer tipple that goes down very easily and also comes in a refreshing slush form. To make it put 2-3 ice cubes in a glass, add a shot or two of gin, top up with cloudy lemonade and add a lemon wedge to serve.
