Gin Lovers Gin | Portugal

National Gin & Tonic Day is on its fifth edition. Gin Lovers Gin its third.
After a Gin which we adapted followed by a Gin thought up and created from scratch, here is our 2017 Edition, a 100% Gin Lovers production.
The directive was simple: make a Gin that is agreeable to the greatest number of people possible. Juniper and Citrus for the purists and traditionalists, but smooth and fruity enough to convince those less accustomed to the bitter sip of this our favourite spirit.
This edition was thought up from scratch but always had as its base the knowledge and opinions we have gathered from the previous versions.  Straight away we reduced the degree of botanicals to make a cleaner and more direct flavour. There are now 32 botanicals used in Gin Lovers Gin, reducing the floral and herbal elements to allow the citrus ones to shine through. Rose petals, Globe Amaranth, Iceland Moss (a lichen) and Breckland Thyme, among others, were left out of the production of Gin Lovers 2017.
We also altered the balance of the power players. Juniper still occupies central stage but it is now accompanied by lemon verbena, pine sprigs and a mixture of citrus fruits, still leaving space for the warmer spices like cinnamon, cassia bark and nutmeg.
Changing a product, especially a Gin, is a complicated step by step process where the whole is always different from the sum of its parts. We wanted a Gin which inherited some of the complex aromas of Xmas Edition 2016 but on the other hand had a more defined matrix with strong vertexes of juniper, pine sprigs, lemon verbena and the citrus fruits.
The alcohol level has also been lowered with the idea of increasing the lightness of the Gin without compromising the depth of aromas. It is now 41% vol.
This decrease in alcohol level goes with the decrease in complexity. In other words, the 2016 versions demanded a higher level of alcohol to carry all of its aromas. The simplification of the botanical palette and almost the entire elimination of floral and herbal elements permits a decrease in alcohol.
Gin Lovers 2017 is therefore a Gin which sits somewhere between classic London Drys and deeper aroma Gins. On tasting, expect the juniper to be refreshed by the pine sprigs and the lemon verbena, followed by the mix of citrus fruits where the orange crosses with the vivacity of bergamot and a warm finish punctuated by warm spices.
We are producing 500 bottles, as in previous editions, whose sale will be limited to our online store, Gin Lovers Príncipe Real and El Corte Inglés supermarkets.

Gin Lovers 2017 Specifications
Alcohol 41%.
Production: distilled with a base of cereal based alcohol (wheat and rye) in a Portuguese distillery.
Botanical: 32 in total, with focus on Juniper, Lemon Verbena, Pine Sprigs and a mixture of citrus fruits and warm spices (Cinnamon and Nutmeg)

Real Gin

A full house at Gin Lovers Príncipe Real for the launch of yet another Portuguese star.
It was a beautiful, hot afternoon in 2015 in Santo Isidro de Pegões… 
It could be a promising first line to a novel, and it was. A love story.
Luís Fava and his wife, Alexandra Fava, her brother Jacinto Policarpo and his wife Raquel, did what any family united in friendship would do on one of those hot punishing afternoons of the summer, on the plains between Arrábida and the Tagus,… they drank Gin! 
“Let’s drink gin”, said Luís. His brother-in-law agreed “ok, I’ll go one further”, adding a providential “let’s make some gin”. The week that followed saw the first tests. Recipe after recipe, experiment after experiment and, in 2016, Real Gin was born. 
Known the world over for the excellence of their wines, Pegões has the infrastructure for the production of high quality aguardente: “Our still is a traditional Portuguese still, with a perfect format for distilling aguardente and now gin. We hope that, now, Pegões will be put on the map for its gins, too”, smiled Luís, the ex-irrigation systems salesman who now dedicates 100% of his time and soul into to this project.
Orange, lemon and physalis are the citruses. Also, lemon balm, cinnamon, allspice, pink pepper, coriander seed, ginger, vanilla and fresh peaches are infused individually, for as long as the producers think ideal, then distilled in pure alcohol of 96%, which has been produced with Portuguese rice (80%) and maize (20%), in a triple distillation, making an exceptionally high quality spirit. They are then stored in a “flavour warehouse” to be later on introduced into the careful distillation of the gin, a distillation which never goes above 75ºC. 
“That was our objective, to fill a gap that we felt existed in the Portuguese market for premium gins, with a different product that pleases the palate of the more demanding consumer. It is a mixture of flavours that we believe makes Real Gin as transversal as it is unique”, he explains. 
Are they betting on abroad? Of course! Real Gin is already in Luxembourg, Spain and, surprisingly (or not) the UK. Not so much Brexit when there is quality involved.
The first bottles are in exclusive sale on our online store.

Beefeater Crown Jewel

Beefeater Crown Jewel was presented to a gathering of bartenders and friends, at Gin Lovers Principe Real.
Despite being a novelty in Portugal, Beefeater Crown Jewel is actually a re-edition of the Crown Jewel launched by Beefeater in 1993. In effect, it would have been the first premium Gin, on a par with Bombay Sapphire, at the time, both aimed at the duty free market.
This “new” Crown Jewel remains faithful to the original recipe, an evolution from Beefeater Dry Gin .
To the nine botanicals in Beefeater Dry Gin have been added grapefruit, and diluted has been reduced so that Crown Jewel, with 50%vol, has a significantly higher alcohol content than Beefeater Dry Gin.
Since it is an evolution of the original Beefeater recipe, Crown Jewel is simultaneously the base for the making of Beefeater 24, the Gin which came to substitute it in 2009. To the ten botanicals used in Crown Jewel, Desmond Payne added two new ones: Japanese Sencha tea and Chinese green tea.
The new bottle, similar to the other bottles of the English brand, is inspired by the Tower of London, seeking to invoke the old legend that the monarchy will fall if the Ravens ever leave the Tower. Thus the figure of a Raven landing on the royal orb that is the O in Crown has centre stage on the label. On the sides of the bottle are inscribed the names of eight Ravens that inhabit the Tower of London. Despite a few alterations, the bottle is similar to the one that was discontinued in 2009, but its purple glass makes it very different to the original clear bottle.
One last thing to mention is that Crown Jewel is a limited edition - the batch number for each bottle is found on the back label.
It is available in Gin Lovers online shop.

Gin Lovers hosts the official launch of Amicis Gin

Amicis (friends, amigos) from the very heart of Portugal, Coimbra, between the sierras Açor and Sicó.
It’s from there that come the 14 botanicals, a “sensory memory book from where I grew up” says Paulo Pereira, 38, a tutor at Portugal Tourism College Douro-Lamego and creator of the latest Portuguese Gin, during its official presentation.
The space chosen was the atrium of Gin Lovers Príncipe Real, which only just managed to welcome all the visiting enthusiasts. The presence of the the three “dragons”, Miguel Ribeiro Ferreira, Isabel Neves and Marco Galinha, who support the project, was a reminder that Amicis already existed, after two years of tests, when it was presented to the dragons on the Portuguese version of Dragon’s Den/Shark Tank in March 2016. “I had to buy him a suit,” joked Marco Galinha, meaning that the bet has paid off. Thus a 100% Portuguese, 100% original Gin was born, with a different aroma that deserves to be first tasted with plain water. Single distillations of Gorse flowers, walnut, honey, citrus fruits from the orchards of Coimbra, Mastruz and nine other botanicals make Amicis one of the most aromatic and distinctive Gins, with enough potential to reach the international premium market. The first signs of that happening are already appearing. Amicis is available at Gin Lovers Online Shop.

Hendrick's - Our trip to Scotland

In Gin Lovers Magazine VII we travelled through Europe for Gin, the stories and distilleries of London Nº1, G'Vine, Ferdinand's Saar, Sylvius Gin, Hendrick's and Martin Miller's in six countries and different cities.
Here we left part of our journey, to Scotland of Hendrick's.


Since Hendrick’s hit the market, Gin and the world that surrounds it will never be the same. Even Scotland will never be the same in our imagination. How can a black bottle, its label and talented marketing team change the way we see a country? In an unusually ingenious way!

The few days we spent in Scotland were intense and the famous Scottish friendliness was always present. I understood that at 6:47pm, when we arrived at Edinburgh Airport (Edinburgh they say “Edinbra”) and were met by two characters who, within a few short hours, would prove to be the best guides. When I say “characters” I mean it in the best sense. Tim Harfield and Dominic Le Moignan seem to have come out of a movie set in Victorian times (with that Hendrick’s “look”), but although flamboyant, not in an eccentric or flashy way. Or rather, they are dandy. Tim is not yet 30. He is nearly two metres tall, has a Morrissey hairstyle, and he’s from Manchester. Dominic (Dom, as he prefers) is a Londoner who sounds identical to Jason Statham. Curiously (or not, as we might later show), he is also an actor. They guide us to the bus that will take us to the hotel. It has tables in front of the seats and even before we start moving, there is already a Gin & Tonic (with cucumber) for everyone. The only rule is not to be embarrassed to have another one, not now, nor in the coming days. We have been introduced to everyone and all the rules. This will not be easy.
The pilot had warned us: “the weather in Edinburgh is not that great at the moment, as usual” and our journey to the G&V Hotel is made through rain that is more drizzle than heavy. We can see the night draw in beyond Grassmarket, where the Fringe Festival takes place in August (during which, these young men and Duncan McRae, who will join us tomorrow, presented The Hendrick’s Emporium of Sensory Submersion - which was an instant success). The Gin & Tonic is good and compensates for the  shortcomings of the day - the rain.

We went for a short walk to the historic centre, obviously to get another drink. The castle was shrouded in mist and Edinburgh assumed a Tim Burtonesque air. Suddenly, Hendrick’s imagery makes sense.
The Victorian age is alive in every architectural detail of Edinburgh, one of the few cities of this great island that did not suffer any bombing during the Second World War. We stopped at Panda & Sons, a basement with a centuries old aroma of dampness, for a Hendrick’s + Absinthe + Lime + cucumber + a Secret Ingredient cocktail and some improvised limericks,  then by The Bon Vivant pub for a Hendrick’s with lime juice and a few more pinches of secret ingredients. We walked through some bulldogs (the dog, not the game) that shared the bar with their owners (maybe this was the effect of the Absinthe). Then this typical Scottish day, as Dom called it, ended.

The crows were bouncing around the on the ground instead of taking off (it was early and the air is too cold for them to they can’t lift their weight from the ground) and we were already in the Edinburgh Botanic Gardens (one of the first in Europe), for a meeting with Max Coleman, the man who knows all the untold secrets of plants, from mere geographical curiosities to the most erotic details that involve bees and other bugs.
About the botanicals used in Hendrick’s Gin, he knows everything. Where they grow, how they influence palate after distillation - all we wanted to know and much, much more, all told to us with passion as we walk through a forest, one of those we are used to seeing in period films. And what could be better after walking through a typically Scottish forest? The Scottish pensioners’ sport of choice, of course! Unusual? Of course not! Unusual is to find ourselves inside Edinburgh Curling Club, the busiest ice rink in Europe, surrounded by friendly old ladies with whom we share conversations about gardening, birdwatching and also a delightful tea. There is a difference, though: our Earl Grey is a hot punch made with Hendrick’s with a good dose of spices that some big bearded men have prepared for us in a samovar.

We find ourselves starting our first ever game of curling a little bit drunk. We chose hats from a vast collection (bowler hats, top hats, deerstalkers like Sherlock Holme’s) to use on the rink while we sweep the ice. The stone we have to slide is huge, we fall over a lot, and there is plenty to give the old ladies a laugh. It must be because of the Earl Grey, of course. Hendrick’s Global Ambassador Duncan McRae joins us for the party. Yes, it is a party. There are even trophies and awards. I will never look at curling in the same way again. And now, I will always support Scotland against Canada.  Curling was invented in Scotland. Not everything is golf, here. Duncan tells me, while he eats a ham, mustard and, of course, cucumber sandwich, that his is the best job in the world. “It is Hendrick’s, for god’s sake. Silly, funny, intense.”.

Now the minibus takes us south. More Gin & tonic and bloody maries from a small traveling bar. We watch the green, beautiful and inspiring Scotland scenery out of the window. We are heading to the distillery, which is closer to Glasgow. That is only tomorrow, though. Today, much is still to happen, after we check in at the legendary Turnberry Hotel. When we finally got to Craigengillen Estate, the night is pitch black. The only light comes from the mansion windows and the stained glass of the main entrance, only just enough for us to recognise the two huge mastiffs (or were greyhounds? it was very dark) that receive us amiably. Suddenly, we step back a few centuries. And we haven’t yet walked in.
Inside, that sensation grows. It’s as if someone downgraded from a castle to something more humble but refused to dispose of any of the decor. There is red velvet everywhere, sinister oil portraits, embalmed owls in glass cases, all of which could be called eerie - an English term that sits somewhere between “ghostly” and merely “weird.” But it is not eerie. It’s just from the Victorian era, and thus, we are at home. In someone’s house. Someone lives here. A lady, who prefers to remain anonymous but who receives us for a dinner that she has cooked for her friend Duncan, this oh so well-connected young man.
For now, this property, all of it, all domes and extravagant furniture, is ours. Dinner only appears after we taste a few cocktails (the red-haired big bearded men from Hendrick’s are always present, they come from who knows where and stubbornly give us glasses filled with delicious things).
After dinner, friendships already sealed across terrines and platters and French wine, a fireplace invites us to another room. We spread out over sofas, chairs and armchairs, facing Dom who is on his feet and holding some books. Duncan is by his side and in front of him there are with some Hendricks bottles, lamps and test tubes. “The Genteel Tipple Through Gin in Literature” is what follows. In other words, Dom recites some passages that show that gin is inseparable from the rich Anglo-Saxon literature. He takes us chronologically through an historical background of the drink that brought us here. Duncan is in charge of preparing cocktails while Dom addresses them.
With Martinis, Martinez, White Ladies, all this is better than 3D movies, and much more fun, tasty and enriching. From the Victorian era to the Gin Craze, via the “Roaring 20s” where we see the appearance of the Dry Martini, Dom makes us fall in love with Dickens, Fleming, Amis, Goodwin. This is perhaps the highlight of the trip, although tomorrow there is still room to find the very core of everything. 

The huge William Grant & Sons complex is surrounded by an enviable landscape. It is at the epicentre of this loud bustle of loaded grain trucks that is the modest Hendrick’s Gin Palace - a surprisingly tiny distillery where the entire Hendrick’s production is centred.
In its warm and stripped interior, Lesley Gracie - responsible for all this - awaits us. She is instantly evidently an endearing lady. Her hobbies are taking care of her house, with its numerous dogs and numerous cats and her garden. But this Scot is the genius behind the Gin flavour everyone talks about. Before that, she worked in a pharmaceutical laboratory. Her work was to make medicinal syrups taste good to children.
With her pharmaceutical background, she was asked to create a Gin that would respect the historical genesis of the drink but, at the same time, to be as English as it is unusual. Leslie came to the conclusion that the ever present cucumber and roses of the island’s gardens were mandatory in its composition. The combination of the two flavours make this a unique distillation in the world. But there are many, many more ingredients, all from the best sources, each batch of which Leslie is keen to taste herself, saving the company money that would be spent on quality control. She is the one who opens the doors every morning, before seven o’clock.
She knows each one of these spice boxes very well, and also the two stills responsible for the humble 500 litre distillations (each batch), which ensures better control over product quality. There is the Bennet still, the heart, and the Carter-Head still, from 1870, which the director of William Grant & Sons bought at an auction, knowing that its genius design could “clean up” the poor quality distillation that was common at that time. Leslie then adds cucumber and rose infusions, once all the spices have been properly distilled (and tasted).
All the work behind one of the most brilliant gins at the moment is literally hand made, part of a great master work. Marketing plays a big role and it is a big weapon that places Hendrick’s as a product of excellence in a market that had seemed to be have been exhausted. But Leslie knows nothing about marketing (but loves the Queen) and after all she is the one we have to thank all of this.
And what better way to do it? Raise your glasses!

Gin Lovers Botanicals

With the increasing success and phenomenon of Gin, there is now a greater interest in botanicals for flavoring the gin and tonic. Juniper, citrus fruits zests or fava tonka are amongst the botanicals that you can find in your gin and tonic glass.
If this enormous diversity of aromas opens up new possibilities and combinations, it could also confuse those who are less familiar with the different herbs, flowers, spices or fruits available today.
The new Gin Lovers botanical collection organizes an unique and fun way to discover the main elements you can use to flavor your gin. The collection is divided into a table of flavors and perfumes where all botanicals have a code that identifies and differentiates them.
The Table of Botanicals, is the tool that seeks to outline the main botanicals used to flavor Gin grouping them according to their aroma. There are seven core types and aromas: herbal, floral, citrus, spicy, sweet, spicy and fruity.
The different types and flavors are identified by a color-coded which makes it easier to identify and distinguish them. See more at the online shop or visit the Gin Lovers Principe Real.

Gin and Tonic Ice cream Santini | Gin Lovers

It is officially considered one of the most anticipated synergies of recent times. The mastery of ice cream maker Santini joined the Gin Lovers boldness and irreverence and created a Gin and tonic ice cream. To be honest not one, but 16 ice cream, all made with Premium Gins sold by Gin Lovers. The new Santini ice cream reproduces not only a taste but also the authenticity of a drink - the Gin and Tonic. Calories aside, this is an ice cream that requires real care when tasted. Be careful or it will let you...inebriated. This synergy started a year ago when Gin Lovers invited Santini to develop a Gin and Tonic ice cream for an article that was coming on the Gin Lovers Magazine. Santini accepted immediately and it was a huge success in stores. This led to an alliance between the most prestigious Portuguese ice cream maker and the biggest Gin community to create a series of gin and tonic ice creams. The 16 premium gin brands were chosen. Then Schweppes and its tonic waters embraced the project with equal enthusiasm and availability. Each gin brand represents a different ice cream flavor because of the different botanical combinations. As there is no addition of ice - which provides an extra quantity of water to drink - the ice cream reveals the most authentic flavor as when you sip a Gin and tonic. Santini gives you the chance to experience ice creams from G'Vine, Gin Mare, Seagram's, Blackwood's 60, Tanqueray 10, Tanqueray Rangpur, Bulldog, Opihr, London N.3, Brockman's Monkey 47, Martin Miller's, Hendrick's, Wild Snow Dog, Sylvius and Beefeater 24. “We take advantage from the the fact that we are one of the oldest players on the market. Our know-how comes from the experience and work of three generations. We do not rest with only traditional flavor like strawberry or chocolate”, says Eduardo Santini - director of the prestigious ice cream maker. He believes that “the creation of new flavors and products in the Santini stores is natural”. Each gin and tonic flavor and brand will be revealed each week beginning the 7th of May. Do not forget. If you eat this ice cream do not drive.
