Understanding the appeal of Xoriguer gin involves a little history lesson. Back in the 18th century, the island of Menorca was owned by Great Britain. British sailors would routinely land in Menorca and visit local taverns. As gin was their drink of choice back home, they looked for gin in Menorca. Invariably, there was none to be found.
The enterprising locals decided to answer this new demand by producing gin in Menorca, and Xoriguer was one of the original brands to emerge.
