Friday - the new Portuguese Gin
There is a new gin made in Portugal. Named Friday Chic Gin, the softness and elegant sweetness are the signatures of this new Portuguese Gin. You can learn more about this gin and its characteristics below. FIRST NOTES The smoothness of Friday is obvious on the nose. The usual juniper aftertaste is almost indestructible and so are the sweetest notes. The alcohol content (40%) is also weaker than a common Gin which makes you absorb more flavors on the first breath. And it is in this moment that we encounter the cardamom and sweet notes for the first time. But there is more in this "sweet" than simple cardamom. There is fruit, ripe fruit, rich in fructose and elegant aroma...tropical fruit. THE BOTANICALS Botanicals: juniper, orange blossom, cardamom and vine leaf (Berry) Tropical fruits (infused before the neutral alcohol) - Passion Fruit, Mango and Papaya. Having a look at the list of botanicals in Friday Chic Gin, we can only find a leaf vine soft clue. The vine leaf gives the Gin a slightly astringent touch (typical of Baga, which grows in the region of Bairrada, Center of Portugal) without being too noticeable or annoying. Everything we feel at the first contact, through smell, is confirmed on the palate. There is a more fruity aftertaste than spicy, as cardamom is the only spice used in the production of gin. Thus, the warm notes ask for it to be drunk pure, with ice. The lower presence of juniper also helps the feeling of softness and delicacy, a clear "snap" to the less orthodox consumers. Therefore, Friday distances itself from the London Dry type.
Gin Lovers Party - Gin Made in Portugal
The Gin Lovers February party will be called “Made in Portugal”. It will be a celebration of the Portuguese Gin with a selection of the best names including the brand new Friday Chic Gin, Adamus, Bolotta, Gina, Gold Grail, Mui, Nao, Wild Snow Dog and Wild Snow Dog Cherry Edition. A party without mandatory consumption and without guestlist, with license to dance, have fun and taste (of course). On the 26th of February, every sign leads to the Embaixada in Principe Real. What is a Gin Lovers Party? On the last Friday of each month since the Summer of 2014, Gin Lovers has dedicated one of its nights to one Gin brand. Beefeater, Bulldog, Blackwoods Gin Mare, G'Vine, Hendrick's, Tanqueray, No.3 London Dry, Seagram's, Wild Snow Dog and many other brands have been with us. And so it has been all last Fridays of the month. In 2016 we changed the format, but the goal remains the same. Absolute freedom, sharing flavors, meeting friends and endless Gin discovery. From 11pm to 2am, with free entry without mandatory consumption, without guestlist in the heart of Lisbon.
