Gin Mare is a thoroughly Spanish gin, bursting with the wonderful taste of the Mediterranean; rosemary, olives, thyme and basil.
The distillers have joined other Mediterranean gins around Europe in Spain, Italy and France using key botanicals to unite cultures across the sea through flavour.
This is a very aromatic gin with an abundance of juniper and fresh coriander, savoury and fresh with fragrant herbal notes.
Gin has been my favourite tipple for 20 years but it took 10 years to find a Gin both I and my beloved and I enjoy. He's a cynic, plus his mother and grandmother both drink Gordon's.
Gin Mare is the rarest of Gins; it changes long held prejudices and makes the definitive Bloody Mary/Mare.
It is 50/50 between juniper and herbal & olive notes. It's perfect paired with Italian food and fever tree Mediterranean tonic.
Well worth buying if you want to seem sophisticated - the packaging is gorgeous and the Gin is different enough to stand out in a crowded market.
Must also mention that you can see why it is fractionally more expensive than other Gins - the quality & smooth finish alone are worth every penny.
Large glass, plenty of ice, bruised basil leaves, good tonic. Wonderful.
Gin Mare, why aren't you there?
You left me in my favourite chair
No matter just how hard I stare
My precious gin is now thin air
I say a silent, hopeful prayer
To reunite me with my Mare
I have the vital kitchenware
But gin is gone, I know not where
I blame my spouse, I blame my heir
If one walked in, I'd blame a bear
For I remain quite unaware
Of what's become of all that Mare
Then just before I reach despair
A memory stirs beneath my hair
The reason why I have no Mare:
I drank it all, and did not share.
