    The Allure of Spanish Gin

    Spain’s Most Popular Bottles Reviewed

Gin has journeyed far from its roots as ‘Genever’ in medieval Holland to become a global sensation. While the UK may often spring to mind when discussing this spirited drink, Spain is hot on its heels with a gin renaissance all its own. From the sunny beaches of Costa Brava to the bustling streets of Madrid, Spanish gin is making waves. Let’s embark on a journey to uncover Spain’s most popular gins and their reviews.

The Gin-tonic Phenomenon

If you’ve ever visited Spain, you’d know that the ‘Gin-tonic’ isn’t just a drink, it’s an experience. Oversized glasses, a plethora of botanicals, and gin poured generously; Spanish Gin-tonics are a sight to behold and a taste to relish.

But how did gin find its home in Spain? One could argue that it was the British influence in Menorca, a Spanish island, where gin production began in the 18th century. Today, the island’s native gin, ‘Xoriguer’, stands as a testament to Spain‘s deep-rooted gin culture.
