Producer Information

Key Information

Xoriguer (pronounced sho-ri-gair) is the same today as it always has been.

It is the result of distillation in traditional copper stills, using high quality wine alcohol and carefully selected juniper berries, which come from the neighbouring Mediterranean mountains, together with aromatic herbs. These herbs are the jealousy guarded "secret" of the liquor's original bouquet. Only the heirs of family know the identity and proportion of this valuable ingredient, which is added behind closed doors and without witnesses, at the start of each distilling. The respect for tradition is such that the fuel still used today in the distillation is wood.

The distillation begins when the vapours which are produced in the still's boiler circulate through copper pipes until they reach a coil, where they condense, forming a precious liquid that drips into jars.

An expert tastes the liquid at intervals to determine the precise moment when the distillation is complete. Once this is accomplished the gin is stored in large oak barrels, where it retains unchanging its colour, flavour and aroma, unti it is l finally bottled.

Xoriguer, thanks to its unique character and to its distillation from natural products, is free of any unwanted additives which could impair its preservation or spoil any kind of cocktail or mixed drink.

Tried this Wonderful Gin last NYE with some friends - we stayed in the house and probably had 2-3 doubles with tonic each and were giggling for the rest of the night!! A very Merry gin is an understatement, very tasty and will be waiting to buy some more when available for this year!!

First tried in Minorca - Mahon where it is made - our favourite gin by far with a distinctive old fashioned flavour. Wish it was as cheap in UK as it is in Baleariacs - still worth the cost for its aroma and taste.
