Gin Mare Mediterranean Gin: A Journey Through the Sun-Drenched Coast

Gin Mare isn't just a gin; it's a Mediterranean escape in a bottle. Distilled in Spain using botanicals native to the region, this gin captures the essence of sun-warmed days, fragrant herb gardens, and citrus groves. Let's delve into the unique flavour profile of Gin Mare and explore how to serve it for an unforgettable taste of the Mediterranean.

On the Nose:

The first impression of Gin Mare is a vibrant burst of freshness. Juniper, the quintessential gin botanical, takes centre stage, but it's not overpowering. Instead, it mingles harmoniously with a chorus of citrus notes. Imagine zesting a Seville orange alongside a plump mandarin, releasing a wave of juicy sweetness. Underlying this citrus symphony are subtle hints of peppery spice, which can be attributed to the inclusion of cardamom and coriander. But what truly sets Gin Mare apart is the unmistakable whisper of the Mediterranean. Delicate aromas of rosemary and thyme weave through the juniper and citrus, conjuring images of sun-drenched herb gardens and adding a touch of earthy elegance.

On the Palate:

The initial sip of Gin Mare is a smooth and silky sensation. The juniper presence is more subdued here, allowing the other botanicals to shine. The citrus notes translate beautifully onto the palate, offering a burst of juicy sweetness balanced by a pleasant tartness. The peppery spice from the cardamom and coriander adds a touch of warmth, tingling gently on the tongue. But the star of the show is the subtle infusion of the Mediterranean herbs. Rosemary and thyme unfold gracefully, leaving a lingering impression of earthy sophistication. The Arbequina olive, a unique botanical to Gin Mare, adds a hint of savoury richness that perfectly complements the other flavours without being overpowering. The overall impression is one of remarkable balance and complexity.

The Finish:

Gin Mare's finish is long and lingering, allowing the various botanicals to leave their lasting impression. The juniper provides a subtle backbone, while the citrus notes fade gracefully, leaving behind a touch of sweetness. The peppery spice from the cardamom and coriander lingers gently, warming the palate. However, it's the rosemary and thyme that truly steal the show in the finish. Their earthy character lingers on the tongue, leaving a refreshing and sophisticated aftertaste that perfectly embodies the essence of the Mediterranean.

Serving Suggestions:

Gin Mare's unique flavour profile makes it incredibly versatile for crafting cocktails. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

  • The Mare Nostrum: This classic Gin Mare cocktail is a celebration of the Mediterranean. Combine 50ml Gin Mare, 25ml fresh lemon juice, 15ml grapefruit juice, 10ml orgeat syrup (almond-flavoured syrup), and a dash of rosemary simple syrup in a shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary and a twist of grapefruit peel.
  • The Gin Mare Tonic: For a simpler yet equally delicious option, enjoy Gin Mare in a perfectly balanced Gin & Tonic. Fill a highball glass with ice, add 50ml Gin Mare, top with your favourite premium tonic water, and garnish with a sprig of rosemary and a slice of orange.
  • The Herbal Gimlet:  This twist on the classic Gimlet incorporates the herbal notes of Gin Mare beautifully. Combine 50ml Gin Mare, 20ml fresh lime juice, and 10ml simple syrup in a shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.

Beyond the Cocktail:

Gin Mare's unique flavour profile also makes it a great sipping gin. Enjoy it neat, savouring the full complexity of the botanicals, or on the rocks for a slightly chilled and refreshing experience.

In Conclusion:

Gin Mare is a gin unlike any other. It's a captivating journey through the sun-drenched landscapes of the Mediterranean, offering a refreshing and sophisticated spirit bursting with flavour. So, uncork a bottle, mix your favourite cocktail, and let Gin Mare transport you to a world of vibrant citrus groves, fragrant herb gardens, and endless blue skies.
