Five Delicious Puerto De Indias Signature Serves

Puerto de Indias delivers an incredible tasting, premium gin. From its port of origin in Seville, the gin produced in one of the oldest traditional distilleries in Andalusia.

The history of the name of the distillery is both long and colourful. The title relates to the trading port that was a vital link between Spain and the Americas. The gins Puerto de Indias is best known for are the Sevillian Gin Premium Strawberry, the Pure Black Edition, and the Classic.

Each of these gins pairs quite differently with cocktails. The strawberry reveals a sweet, authentic strawberry and juniper-forward pour, while the Pure Black Edition brings a much more floral note. The Classic is a more standard, citrus-forward pour, with notes of lime, grapefruit, orange and lemon peel. It is accompanied by light cilantro which leaves a clean, fresh feeling.
