History of this Spanish gin

Originally from Menorca, an island that was occupied by the English after the treaty of Utrecht, and which they would keep for almost the entire eighteenth century. This was a major influx of soldiers and sailors to guard this island, strategic for the British Crown, given its influential situation in the western Mediterranean.

It is during this period, and due to the high demand for gin by the English occupiers, that new gins produced by small local producers begin to appear quickly. To this end, Mahonese producers imported eenebro and distilled gin from the Mediterranean’s own vitamin alcohol.

Gin soon becomes a successful drink in Menorca, creating a link that still lasts in our day. It is already entering the twentieth century, when Miguel Pons Justo, creates the Xoriguer gin. The name is due to the family mill, used for generations of the Pons family.
