About this deal

It was an excellent gin when served that way, and it’s still an excellent gin in a regular gin and tonic. With two of the founders being an award-winning sommelier and a wine entrepreneur, it’s perhaps not too surprising they chose to create a spirit derived from grapes, with Galician albariño grapes used to create its wine distillate. It also has 11 botanicals, 6 of which grow wild in Galicia and give it its fresh, balsamic character. Throughout this fruitful period, he established a healthy rapport with the great and the good of the local wine scene, affording him access to their distinguished cellars.

I may from time to time choose to do a second review and amend my opinion of a product, should I feel like it and find my review criteria has evolved, or that I’ve found it different at a later date. Delicately perfumed, Nordes is a soft, sweet gin with the flavour of red fruit, sherbert and peaches. The flavour is floral and robust, slightly perfume-y on the nose, but really satisfying on the palate.A rather intriguing Spanish gin made with an Albariño-grape-based spirit, rather than your more commonly seen grain-based spirit, along with 12 botanicals including lemon peels, hibiscus, liquorice and eucalyptus. Our gin draws its name from the Nordés wind which brings freshness from the Atlantic Ocean, letting the Galicians know about the arrival of good weather and good vibes. The General Wine Company is a family-owned and operated wine merchant in Liphook, Hampshire, England.

additional botanicals are incorporated from overseas, including juniper, ginger, cardamom, hibiscus and black tea.

I do think this could fit nicely into cocktails like a collins, southside, Finnish long drink, or even a cucumber lemonade. At first I thought maybe this was floral enough to be considered a floral gin, but the more I drank it the more I became convinced that this isn’t a floral gin, despite the handful of floral notes that were there. I can not describe the aroma or the flavour, (although I could detect a hint of albarino) its Odd, weird, strange in a fabulous way, its an enigma in a glass!That said, as I’m unlikely to repurchase anything I thought was less than very good to excellent, it would be by chance or at the request of a distiller who thought I rated them very unfairly - BUT even then, whatever you get will always be my honest opinion. And just three weeks after I carried a bottle home, Nordes came to the States, not in a suitcase, but via distributors. A careful selection of the best neutral alcohols, together with the use of white Albariño Galician grapes and with the presence of 6 native Galician herbs such as sage, lemon verbena, laurel, peppermint, eucalyptus and glasswort. It’s important to highlight that there’s a real freshness to this gin, thanks to its Atlantic Ocean inspiration. The story says they were eating lunch in Galicia, enjoying local specialties and came to the topic of creating a uniquely Galacian spirit.

Located in the northwest of Spain, they set out to to capture the freshness of the the Atlantic Ocean in every bottle. Nordés Atlantic Galician Gin is a rather intriguing Spanish gin made with an Albariño-grape-based spirit, rather than your more commonly seen grain-based spirit, along with 12 botanicals including lemon peels, hibiscus, liquorice and eucalyptus. We recommend that you do not rely solely on the information presented here and that you always read labels, warnings, and directions before using or consuming a product. With multi-faceted notes of cardamom, lemon peel and juniper, the Spanish gin delights the olfactory receptors of the epicurean in an instant.Simply wonderful, since the first time I ‘discovered’ it in 2016 exploring Alicante it has been a special addition on my gin shelf.
