Magellan Blue Gin

In 1519, five ships led by Ferdinand de Magellan set out to circumnavigate the world and explore the "spice islands." Three years later, only the ship Victoria returned to Spain, with 18 people and several barrels of cloves. Sadly, Magellan, who died in battle during the voyage, never saw the results of his spice discoveries. Those spices inspired the creation of Gin as we now know it, and it is to cloves in particular, that Magellan Gin owes its unrivaled taste.

Magellan Gin is handcrafted in small batches using the finest natural exotic botanicals from around the Globe at the Angeac Distillery. It begins with the fermentation of Capet, a rich wheat grain and water from the Gensac Spring. The wheat and water mash is then triple distilled yielding a smooth, clean neutral spirit. Each botanical is picked at its peak of ripeness and quickly sun dried. After triple distillation of the neutral spirit, the head of a small pot still is opened and these fresh botanicals, wrapped in a special cloth are added to the neutral spirit and immediately redistilled a fourth time. Then, guided by generations of expertise, the master distiller selects the "heart" of Magellan Gin, the moment when the Gin is perfect. This Fresh Distillation process truly captures the intricate and complex flavors of the fresh botanicals. Following the fourth distillation, Magellan Gin is infused with natural iris root and flower, which gives Magellan Gin its crisp taste and beautiful blue color. We finish by bottling Magellan Gin in clear glass so you can admire this unique spirit inspired by Magellan's travels between the cerulean sky and deep blue sea.

Magellan Gin's scintillating aroma and refreshingly smooth and balanced character are unmatched in the world. Light floral tones and brilliant natural blue hue make this, the premier Gin to enjoy in any classic cocktail. Please Journey with Magellan Gin responsibly.
