Botanical Notes: Nordés is a gin containing 11 botanicals, Six of these botanicals are native to Galicia, which are bay leaf, lemon verbena, Salicornia (sea bean), mint, eucalyptus, and sage, giving Nordés its fresh Galician character and salinity. The other five are cardamom, hibiscus flower, ginger, black tea and juniper, lending depth and spice to the profile. Albariño is a large component of the base distillate, giving Nordés a fresh, smooth, aromatic profile.
Distilling Notes: Each botanical is macerated separately before distillation, as each requires a different maceration time to achieve its optimum flavor – some a few hours, and others up to one month. The base of the gin is a combination of grain neutral spirit and Albariño wine both distilled in a copper pot still.
Tasting Notes: A fresh, fruity nose, with citrusy notes from the lemon verbena and Albariño base. Green herbal tones, as well as white fruit aromas and a whiff of sea salt are also on the nose. The palate is fruit-forward and spicy, featuring white peach and the subtle undertone of juniper, with beautiful balance and a smooth profile.
Pairing Suggestions: Nordés can pair well with many foods like tapas, ceviches, sushi, Spanish conservas, and even fresh pineapple.
