Xoriguer, in Menorcan, is the name that designates the Minorcan windmills, since 1784.
The mission of the winery is to make a gin as natural as possible. Gin Xoriguer is the essential ingredient in the most typical drink of the island, called "pomada" in Mahón and "gin amb llimonada" in Ciutadella. It has earned the appreciation of the tourists who visit this Balearic island every year, and who bear the name of this marked gin to its places of return. Little by little it has gained a reputation as a great gin, which makes it one of the best sellers in all of Europe, even though in Spain it is still a great unknown.
Gin Xoriguer is obtained by distillation in copper still with wine alcohol, in the heat of the wood fire, and stored until bottled in oak barrels.
