ATLANTIC GALICIAN SPIRITS

Founded in 2012
Atlantic Galician Spirits is the brainchild of restaurateur Xoan Torres Cannas Sommelier, and Winemaker Juan Luis Mendez of Adegas and Viñedos Vía Romana, who set out to create a 100% Galician distilled Gin.

Owned by The Osborne Group, a privately held Spanish company. Atlantic Galician Spirits' named their Nordés line of Spirits after the consistent trade winds of the Atlantic that blow Eastward across the Atlantic sea onto the costs of Galicia in Northern Spain.

They use locally-sourced ingredients in their distilled Spirits. This imparts a refreshingly unique flavor to all of their products and you feel like you can taste a little of Galicia in every sip.

Galician Spirits produces a Galician Vodka crafted from native potatoes, and a Galician Atlantic Nordés Gin, crafted from locally sourced Albariño grape Spirit. Albariño or Alvarinho is a variety of white Wine grape grown in Galicia, Monção, and Melgaço, where it is used to make varietal white Wines.

Under the guidance of master distiller Joseph Alvela, their Galician Gin is made using a maceration technique and infused with 14 locally sourced botanicals; including hibiscus, licorice, lemon peels, and ginger. 

In addition to juniper, it has various native Galician herbs such as lemon verbena, laurel leaves, sage or eucalyptus. It also incorporates salicornia, -a sea plant- cardamom, peppermint, ginger, hibiscus, black Ceylon tea, and quinine.
