Exquisite new gin is now in our collection! Distilled by the light of the full moon!

Somehow one associates gin with the UK and London but we are discovering that some rare botanical gins are being distilled right here in Spain.

We recently happened upon a brand whose description made it impossible to resist. It is distilled only twelve times a year by the light of the full moon. Isn´t that romantic? We thought so and ordered a case.

I asked the distillers´ advice on how best to serve it and they said with a slice of dehydrated orange and Muscat grapes. They were right. It was the most delightful drink. 

In their own words:

"ALKKEMIST Gin acquires its particular personality from the full moon's influence. Its distillation during the full moon holds an intimate relation with the mystery around its formula. A making process that takes place under the moon. Keeping immortality a safe secret."

To read more about it, the poetry of their descriptions, and how best to enjoy Alkkemist, come to Los Castaños and/or click here for their website! 

But remember to book directly with us for the best deal! You can check availability here
