The secret: its base spirit
One of the secrets of Nordés lies in the albariño grape, which is used for its base spirit. This gives it a smooth aroma with notes of fruit and white flowers, the result being a pleasant and easy-to-drink gin.
Fresh, natural botanicals
Nordés is made using 11 individually macerated botanicals, 6 of which grow wild in Galicia, namely sage, bay leaf, lemon verbena, eucalyptus, peppermint and glasswort, a plant found in coastal regions, which create its distinctive balsamic aroma.
5 botanicals sourced overseas are also used, these being juniper, ginger, cardamom, hibiscus and black tea, which give Nordés subtle notes and a well-balanced flavour.
A slow and careful process
The botanicals are macerated separately before distillation, each requiring a different amount of time based on the exact aroma desired, from a few hours to almost a month in certain cases. The result is an extremely well-balanced base spirit.
This slow and very careful process makes Nordés a truly unparalleled gin.
