About this deal

It is the most unique gin I have ever tasted, It's a "I can't quite get my head around it" type of gin. Our gin draws its name from the Nordés wind which brings freshness from the Atlantic Ocean, letting the Galicians know about the arrival of good weather and good vibes. Some of the data that are collected include the number of visitors, their source, and the pages they visit anonymously.

To taste, the flavour journey isn’t much of a journey at all – more a big hit on the taste buds that continues through the palate and finish. Throw in some more traditional botanicals - juniper, cardamom, ginger, and two exotic ones hibiscus and black tea, and you have the recipe of Nordes. It’s important to highlight that there’s a real freshness to this gin, thanks to its Atlantic Ocean inspiration. I do think this could fit nicely into cocktails like a collins, southside, Finnish long drink, or even a cucumber lemonade.It contains 12 different Botanicals and these creates a Floral flavoured profile with refreshing notes of Citrus running throughout! To create that Galacian spirit they needed Galician flavors to do that they started with something they most understood. The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. additional botanicals are incorporated from overseas, including juniper, ginger, cardamom, hibiscus and black tea. The special thing about this gin is that Albrino grapes (= Spanish white wine grapes) are distilled with 14 botanicals and traditional herbs, including juniper, eucalyptus, hibiscus, tea, lemon peel, verbena, liquorice and Frisian herb.

It was an excellent gin when served that way, and it’s still an excellent gin in a regular gin and tonic. It would however go very well in a fruity variation on the martini, or in fact any fruity type of drink.

Nordés is Galicia’s very own premium gin, which was created as a celebration of its native land and has quickly become a revolutionary gin, taking the familiar to the next level with its authentic feel and exquisite flavour. That drink which already has the flavor of the dark fruit of the maraschino cherry, seemed the perfect vehicle for Nordes. The bottle design is inspired by traditional ceramics of Sargadelos which are also made in Galicia and are synonymous with utilising singular designs and white and blue colours.

The recommended garnish is three white grapes, but it also works really well with sage and a liquorice stick/cardamom seeds. Made using a pomace from Albarino grapes, the botanicals include juniper, ginger, hibiscus and liquorice, resulting in a unique and intriguing gin. While it may not be to everyone’s tastes – particularly those who are juniper-forward diehards – this is a contemporary-style gin worth shouting about, full of flavour and Galician provenance.To that they added 6 local botanicals, lemon verbena, bay leaf, mint, sage, eucalyptus, and Glasswort (a plant that grows along the seashore and in marshes and is also known as “pickle weed”). With two of the founders being an award-winning sommelier and a wine entrepreneur, it’s perhaps not too surprising they chose to create a spirit derived from grapes, with Galician albariño grapes used to create its wine distillate.

Nordés Atlantic Galician Gin is a rather intriguing Spanish gin made with an Albariño-grape-based spirit, rather than your more commonly seen grain-based spirit, along with 12 botanicals including lemon peels, hibiscus, liquorice and eucalyptus.While I really like this gin and i do think it’s nice on the rocks and in gin and tonics (and variations thereof) I think this gin fell flat in a traditional martini.
