Puerto De Indias – Strawberry Gin Overview

The Puerto De Indias brand started back in 2013, with only four workers originally, the brand has come a long way. This gin is now Spain’s fourth biggest selling gin and the company now employs over 100 people and is also considered an important employment source in Carmona (Seville), Spain.

Although Seville, Spain is well known for its Seville oranges, it’s also lesser known for its amazing strawberries, which is where this gins origins begin. This gin recipe was almost stumbled on, while trying to make a failed strawberry liqueur, they accidentally came up with the recipe for this beautiful strawberry gin!

“This smooth, strawberry gin works wonders when paired with a simple Elderflower Tonic and if you’re feeling adventurous, add some Italian styled balsamic and pepper strawberries for a garnish to make this a taste sensation!”

What makes this gin that little more special, is the Puerto de Indias distillery uses high quality, fresh ingredients in their products. The strawberries and other ingredients are carefully sourced ensuring a truly special product, which ensures this gin encompasses its own unique identity which rings true when tasting.

As you’d expect being a Spanish gin, it’s very citrusy flavoured, from Grapefruit through to Lime, Lemon and Orange this gin has a beautiful citrus base. Simply from opening the bottle, you’re greeted with gorgeous aromatic strawberry scents with subtle juniper and citrus undertones.
