Nordes Atlantic Galician Gin
Nordés Atlantic Galician Gin seeks to differentiate itself pretty radically from the get go. The base spirit is distilled from locally grown Albariño (or Cainho Branco) grapes. The wine from the grapes is bright, almost botanical just on its own, and wine-aficionados compare it favorable to Gerwurtztraminer.
Food and Wine magazine one suggested it might be “the next great summer wine” (Rieslings be on guard!). While the wines are a particular specialty of Galicia, Albariños are still more uncommon, making this gin a unique specimen before you get to the botanicals.
The nose of Nordés Atlantic Galician Gin is bright with sweetly floral aromas, a bit like a perfumed guest soap or potpourri. Fruit wine, hints of peach and rose with smatterings of rainbow sherbet and raspberries.
