A bright and lightly tart pink Gin from Mexico with fragrant orange blossoms and prickly-pear fruit taking center stage.

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.

On the flag of Mexico is the image of an eagle eating a snake while perched on a cactus. The pre-Columbian Aztec peoples were nomadic, and their legends dictated that they could not stop to build their city and civilization until they saw this sight. And see it they did, founding Mexico Tenochtitlan in 1325.

The second Gin from Condesa builds upon their Classic Gin, adding the fruit of the prickly-pear cactus and orange blossoms to raspberry, juniper berries, coriander seeds, and lime. The Spirit has a natural pink hue from the prickly-pear fruit and is bottled at 43% ABV.

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!
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
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.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
