Adamus | Portugal

Origin Portugal
Alcoholic Volume 44,4º
Type Distilled Gin
Known Botanicals 18 botanicals in total, among which are cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, hibiscus, orange, lavender, lemon, pennyroyal, sage, Baga grapes and juniper.

Brief Description
Adamus is the jewel in the crown of Destilaria Levira and that’s what the name means: Adamus is diamond in ancient Greek. The distillery has almost a hundred years of history, dedicated mostly to the production of aguardente bagaceira. In the last few years, due to heavy investment in innovation and the development of new products, it created the Adamus range, entirely dedicated to super-premium products. 
The epic poem of Adamus, the Gin, began with a study into the organoleptic properties of an initial selection of 86 botanicals. It was the team’s intention to have a detailed knowledge of the raw materials with which they would make Adamus to best complement the Baga grape, typical of the region and the central botanical in the recipe. After various distillations, separately and individually, indispensable tests, some steps forward, some back, the final formula was decided upon with 18 botanicals. The team spared no efforts For them, satisfactory was not enough, only excellence was their goal. 
Adamus is a decidedly fruity Gin which escapes the more traditional rule of juniper being the central element. On the nose we note the gentle aroma of the grape and the exotic touch of the cardamom. Fruit occupies the central stage on the palate, with the grape being followed lightly by they citrus fruits, but also a more herbal side with the lavender and the sage.

Inseparable | Portugal

Origin Portugal
Alcoholic Volume 45º
Type Distilled Gin
Known Botanicals 36 botanicals in total, where honey, cinnamon, vanilla, Peruvian cocoa and allspice predominate.

Brief Description
There’s a new Portuguese Gin on the market. INseparable is another new Gin on our shelves where it finds itself next to tens of other Portuguese Gins. 
It all began a few years ago, at the dinner table where 8 friends met in what would become a weekly ritual. To dinner, they added a new Gin to taste each week. The challenge of bringing something new week after week became harder and harder and almost reached the point at which it was impossible to surprise the group.
This was the cue for Luís Afonso, one of the 8, to get to work and start making his own Gin from scratch, one that would break from everything else they had tried. He bought a small copper still and began his quest of aromatic alchemy, in a long but gratifying process which culminated in the perfect mixture that would be tasted by the most important group of testers… Luis Afonso’s group of 8.
Disguised in a plain bottle, INseparable was given to the group to try and it was approved straight away. Approved to the point that they decided immediately that they were in the presence of a Gin that was worthy of being shown to everyone, not just the 8 friends. 
They began to refine the recipe and getting it ready for production.
In all, they tested 93 botanical, but only 36 remained in the final recipe. To minimize the effect of inevitable variations in aromas that natural products suffer, they turned to Tec Labs at the faculty of science of the University of Lisbon which analyses all the botanicals for each batch and indicates any alterations they should make in the percentages. 
The flavouring of the alcohol is done in two distinct steps. First, cold, when 34 of the botanicals are macerated and left in contact with the alcohol. The maceration time varies from botanical to botanical in order for each one to shine as much as the next. The already flavoured alcohol is then filtered into the still, where the two remaining botanicals are waiting in an aroma basket. Which botanicals are which? Only the 8 know.
INseparable has 45 volumes of alcohol and thus would be expected that it would have a marked alcohol aroma, but this is not the case and instead, it is the sweet and spicy notes that punctuate the nose. There is a sweet hit of honey but it is also easy to find the warmer notes of vanilla and cinnamon. In the mouth, INseparable keeps its smoothness and warmth. The identifiable notes on the nose also include cocoa and allspice. 

Tips & Tricks
Bica Gin | Portugal

Origin Portugal
Alcoholic Volume 42º
Type Distilled Gin
Known Botanicals Rosemary, Corn husks, Camomile, Cinnaon, Thistle, Coriander Seed, Orange blosoom, Lily root, Lemon verbena, Honey, Juniper.

Brief Description
Bica Gin was born after 2 years of extensive experiments. It is in the Alentejo that many of the botanicals for this Gin with an Alentejan heart are found. The orange and lemon peels, harvested in Herdade do Vale, the honey and the corn husks, bought from small local producers, and the rosemary which grows wild all around are just some examples. The botanical palette has the Alentejo at its heart but the world in its sights, with its coriander seeds, cinnamon, lemon verbena, camomile, orange blossom, thistle, lily root and juniper, which comes from Macedonia.
Respecting the intrinsic characteristics of each botanical, the process of maceration is done using different times and methods for each, while always using a wheat and rice based alcohol. This never takes more than 24 hours, at the end of which, distillation begins in the still which was especially developed for Bica Gin, with 500 litre capacity, and a bain marie heated by wood burner.
On the nose, Bica Gin is pretty smooth, with herbal touches in which the rosemary is immediately detectable. Less apparent, but still noticeable are the citrus notes, and cinnamon, conferring warmth and comfort.
In the mouth, the smoothness of the alcohol shows itself. Piquant touches punctuate the warmth from the spices and the more herbal side of Bica Gin. The mouth is extremely long and continues to develops until the juniper and the sweetness of the orange appear together, in harmony.

Tips & Tricks
Wild Snow Dog | Portugal

Origin Portugal
Alcoholic Volume 40º
Type Distilled Gin
Known Botanicals Almond, angelica root, cinnamon, cassia, coriander seed, kumquat, nutmeg, rose, lemon peel and juniper.

Brief Description
Serra da Estrela - the highest point in Portugal - is one of the few places where the juniper plant grows in its natural state. It is also the region where many liqueurs and spirits are produced. The combination between experience and source of wild juniper was the perfect setting for the development of a new Gin.
The primacy was naturally given to juniper but sweeter botanicals were added to the distillation in a more contemporary approach to Gin. Wild Snow Dog has spices such as cinnamon or cassia, the sweetness of the kumquat or the greasiness of the almond.
The result is a very pleasant Gin either on the nose or the mouth with the juniper coming first, soon followed by the warm touch of cinnamon and cassia and a citrus component less noted than in most London Dry.

Blackwoods 60º | Scotland

Origin Scotland
Alcoholic Volume 60º
Type London Dry Gin
Known Botanicals Liquorice, angelica root, cinnamon, citrus peel, coriander seed, mountain daisy, nutmeg, sea rose, meadowsweet and juniper.

Brief Description
It is from the beautiful landscape of the Shetland islands, North of Scotland, that the Blackwood's comes from. Using the local flora, this Gin carries all the richness and cultural heritage of the region. The recipe has a Nordic origin, and reflects the previous Viking domain. The main botanicals, such as angelica, rose from the sea, meadowsweet and marigold are locally sourced. You should expect a citric and herbal London Dry brought by the Shetland botanicals. The close connection between the Blackwood's and the environment that surrounds it makes it a tribute to the year in which they are produced, hence it is Vintage gin.

Mui Gin | Portugal

Origin Portugal
Alcoholic Volume 40º
Type Distilled Gin
Known Botanicals Licorice, rosemary, toasted almonds, cinnamon, ginger, hibiscus, pennyroyal, Muscat raisin, orange and tangerine peel and juniper.

Brief Description
The Mui gin comes from an old Geneva recipe that was in possession of Chef's Helio Loureiro family since 1873.
The chef's creative vein made him bring some of the most expensive spices to the recipe, giving it a more contemporary feel, more aromatic.
Mui is produced using 7 distillations in search of a purer, smoother and pleasant alcohol. In addition, there is a varied palette of botanicals where we can find the Moscatel grape, sweet citrus, roasted almond, pennyroyal or hibiscus.
The Mui is rich and fruity with the juniper always present. The taste in the mouth is given by the fruit and spices with the velvety touch of raisins and toasted almonds.

Tips & Tricks
Citadelle | France

Origin France
Alcoholic Volume 44º
Type London Dry Gin
Known Botanicals Liquorice, almond, root and angelica seed, cinnamon, cardamom, cassia, coriander seed, cumin, anise star, fennel, grains of paradise, orange and lemon peels, iris root, nutmeg, cubeba pepper, satureja, verbena and juniper.

Brief Description
The Citadelle Gin is produced in the Southwestern region of France, the land of Cognac. Alexandre Gabriel, Citadelle's master-distiller, used an old Geneviere recipe which he found in the city of Dunkirk, dating back to the eighteenth century. In addition, he added the tradition of Pierre Ferrand and started the production of Citadelle in small stills of copper heated with direct flame and without steam (naked flame) - like Cognac is made. This type of heating is noted when we taste it. It's rounder and smoother than most Gins as a result of the botanicals caramelization inside the still. Produced using the 19 botanicals, the Citadelle offers spicy notes of cinnamon, anise and nutmeg but also a jasmine perfume.
