The gorgeous Gin Mare is our September Gin of the Month, bursting with Mediterranean flavours.
Gin Mare opens the door to a new variety of gins, with a novel pan-Mediterranean concept that unites the different cultures around the sea through their star botanical flavours. A very aromatic gin with an abundance of juniper and fresh coriander, savoury and faintly bitter with fragrant herbal notes.
What better way to make good use of the amazing gin than create a cocktail packed full of true Mediterranean flavours.
