A fragrance bomb of a Gin with a delightfully complex palate and a truly unique list of exotic botanicals… oh, and it’s made in Mexico City.

In the heart of bustling Mexico City there are two famous neighborhoods — Condesa and Roma. They are each an old-world oasis of trendy architecture and design. Condesa Gin is named after this respite. Founded by an all-woman team, Condesa Gin (or Ginebra) produces a pair of fragrant Gins influenced by the botanicals and traditions of Mexico.

Condesa Clasica Gin is a bit of a misnomer. Sure, it is a very well-made Gin in the classic dry style. But in addition to the more traditional botanicals of juniper, coriander, lavender, rosemary, cedron (luisa, or lemon verbena), lime zest, and orange zest they have added palo santo (holy wood, bursera graveolens), sage, jasmine, myrrh, and elderflower. So yes, you will instantly recognize a classic dry style, but you will also be greatly pleased with the bouquet of a new, modern Gin with some delightful surprises on the palate.

Appearance / Color
Clear

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma very floral with the juniper and citrus following along and a hint of savory sage keeping the fragrance earthy and grounded.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor still leads with the floral notes but now a mix of woods and resins join the flavor party with a nice spice that sneaks up on you.

Finish
The finish is crisp and a bit spicy with a peppery zest lingering on the back palate.

Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
