The gin originates from Galicia. Manuel Barrientos, experienced sommelier and native of the Costa da Morte, is the creator and owner. In London, Manuel Barrientos buys a grain spirit that is distilled five times. From this, he makes his distinctive gin. During production, no less than ten different botanicals are used: juniper, cardamom, cilantro, thyme, bitter chamomile, licorice, peppermint, lemon and sweet and bitter orange peel. All of these are macerated separately in this neutral grain spirit. Afterwards, a mixture of these macerations is distilled three times. Distillation takes place in an old Hervé & Moulin (Bordeaux) pot still, which is active since 1890 (as mentioned on the label of the gin).
Gin Sea has gentle, sweet citrus and earthy juniper on the bouquet, as well as a hint of lavender and a little spice. The juniper is mellowed on the palate and the sweetness more pronounced with candied ginger and chamomile making a rather pleasant appearance. Gin sea has a rather herbal, aromatic finish with noticeable thyme-flavour that balances beautifully.
