Pronounced: ‘Mar-Ray’ and made in a 19th Century chapel on the outskirts of Barcelona in the small Spanish fishing town on the Costa Dourada (Litrally ‘golden coast’).
This Mediterranean gin is flavoured with botanicals from the region: Arbequina olives, rosemary, basil and thyme along with more traditional gin botanicals: juniper, coriander, cardamom and citrus (a blend of Seville oranges, lemons and mandarins).

The citrus botanicals are macerated in clay jars for a year while the other botanicals are macerated separately for over 36 hours and individually distilled before the six distillations are blended together to create Gin Mare.

Sampled on 16/11/2015

Appearance:

Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Spicy and herbaceous. Reminiscent of a humid pine forest filled with tomato plants, rosemary, basil and black olives.

Taste:

Boldly flavoured. Bursts open with pine, eucalyptus, basil and fresh coriander before turning dry with thyme and rosemary.

Aftertaste:

Dry with basil, green olives, cardamom and black pepper spice.

Overall:

This Spanish gin offers genuinely different flavours delivering what the label promises: a Mediterranean gin with olives, thyme, rosemary and basil.
