Menorca is a Mediterranean island which belonged to the British crown over 200 years ago, for most of the 18th century. Thousands of British sailors and soldiers were stationed on the island in those days. They frequented the local taverns, but they were unable to find the liquor that was fashionable at the time in their country: GIN. Soon some Mahon craftsmen, found a solution to the problem. They would import juniper berries and produce gin on the island, using wine alcohol from Mediterranean vineyards.
Due to its origins, traditions and Mediterranean characteristics, GIN XORIGUER has gained recognition throughout the CEE being denominated a guaranteed traditional specialty or specific name of a product E.T.G. MAHON-MENORCA. XORIGUER is still a family business, looking to the future, faithful to its origins and to a continuing tradition of craftsmanship, with the desire to please all their clients and friends with its carefully elaborated GIN XORIGUER.
