Nordes Gin was born from a love of the Northerly Atlantic wind which sweeps across the Galician shore. It sets itself apart from other gins by using an Albarino grape based spirit which gives the gin a beautiful aromatic character.
Nordes utilises 11 botanicals in total, including 6 wild Galician varietals - Mint, Sage, Laurel, Salicornia or Glasswort (a Galician seaweed), Lemon Verbona & Eucalyptus. 5 other botanicals are brought in from around the World to complete this wonderfully different gin- tea, hibiscus, cardamom, ginger, and of course juniper. The recipe was developed by a wine grower, chef and a ‘Golden Nose’ sommelier from the Galician region who had the desire to make a gin that was as perfect to serve with food as the finest wines from the area. Nordes makes a fantastic GT, preferably served in a large balloon type glass, plenty of ice and a garnish of sage and strawberries. With its unique flavour profile Nordes can be mixed creatively by bartenders, or at home, to make some stunning, creative cocktails.
Nordes Vodka hails from the same area and the inspiration to use locally sourced ingredients. Made from Galician potatoes this is a Vodka rounded and pure. The smooth and rich texture makes this the perfect Martini vodka or can used be in many long and refreshing cocktails.
