Nordes Atlantic Galician Gin: A Journey to the Coast of Spain in Every Sip 

Unveiling a Gin Infused with the Spirit of Galicia

Nordes Atlantic Galician Gin is more than just a spirit; it's a captivating exploration of the rugged Galician coastline in northwestern Spain. Distilled with meticulous care and a unique blend of botanicals, Nordes captures the essence of the Atlantic Ocean's freshness and the wild beauty of the Galician landscape.

A Base Unlike Any Other: The Allure of Albariño Grapes

One of the most distinctive features of Nordes is its base spirit. Unlike traditional gins that rely on neutral grain alcohol, Nordes utilises a grape distillate crafted from Albariño grapes. This regional grape, renowned for its crisp white wines, imbues the gin with a subtle sweetness and delicate floral notes that set the stage for a truly captivating flavour profile.

A Symphony of Botanicals: A Dance of Galician Herbs and Classic Juniper

Nordes elevates the gin experience with a symphony of 11 botanicals, six of which are hand-selected from the Galician region. Juniper berries, the cornerstone of any gin, provide the essential piney foundation. However, Nordes doesn't stop there. Galician botanicals like eucalyptus, lemon verbena, and samphire (a succulent coastal herb) weave a tapestry of freshness, offering hints of mint, citrus, and a touch of the sea air. Sage and bay leaf add depth and complexity, while ginger and cardamom introduce a touch of warmth and spice. Finally, hibiscus and liquorice add a subtle floral note and a hint of sweetness that perfectly complements the Albariño base.

Tasting Notes: A Voyage for the Senses

Nose: The initial aroma of Nordes is a captivating invitation. Fresh juniper mingles beautifully with citrusy notes of lemon verbena and a whisper of eucalyptus. As the gin opens up, hints of white florals emerge, courtesy of the Albariño base, intertwined with a subtle sweetness of liquorice and a touch of peppery spice from the ginger.

Palate: The first sip of Nordes is a revelation. The juniper berry takes centre stage, but it's not overpowering. Instead, it's softened by the sweetness of the Albariño and the gentle warmth of the ginger. The citrus notes dance on the tongue, while the eucalyptus provides a refreshing coolness. Hints of herbs like sage and bay leaf add a touch of earthiness and complexity, creating a truly well-rounded flavour profile.

Finish: The finish of Nordes is long and lingering. The sweetness of the Albariño lingers, intertwined with the gentle spice of the ginger and a touch of menthol from the eucalyptus. The citrus notes slowly fade, leaving a clean and refreshing sensation.
