Macaronesian, Canary Islands Spain

Profile: Floral, Herbal

Taste: Hyacinth, eucalyptus, clove.

Recommended Garnish: Rosemary, orange slice.

Brilliance! When you leave someone alone on a remote island for a long time, their resourcefulness and creativity will show through, by way of desperation or desire. Macaronesian Gin is made in the Canary Islands with local Tenerife juniper and volcanic rock filtered water. Explosive floral notes: hyacinth, eucalyptus, rosemary, cloves. Complex and entirely refreshing with tonic on a hot Tenerife day! When you are visiting Tenerife, I highly recommend this gin. When you are in Klaustur Bar, I highly recommend this gin.

Side note, Macaronesia is the term for the 4 groups of islands off the coast of Africa: Azores (Portugal), Madeira (Portugal), Canary Islands (Spain), and Cape Verde.
