DESTILERÍAS MIQUEL GUANSÉ

Distillery
Founded in 1940
This Spanish distillery is located just outside of Barcelona, in Vilanova, a small fishing village that lies between Costa Brava and Costa Dorada. Housed inside of a picturesque chapel that was once a monk’s retreat, the distillery is owned by the Giro Ribot family, which has been in the Wine and Spirits business since 1835. 

The family made its first debut into Gin distilling in 1940 when Manuel Giro Sr launched Gin MG. Gin Mare is currently one of Spain’s best selling Gins. Years later grandsons Mark and Manuel Jr wanted to continue the family tradition and crafted their own Gin, inspired by the Mediterranean climate, using locally sourced botanicals.

Gin Mare truly is quintessentially Mediterranean, in Spirit and in taste. The premium barley base is infused with traditional Gin botanicals, but also specialties of the Mediterranean - basil from Italy, thyme from Greece, rosemary from Turkey, citrus fruits from Spain, and their 'Liquid Gold': The ARBEQUINA OLIVE; the only olive in the World with its own Designation of Origin.

The Chapel was previously located on the town’s beach where local fishermen would pray for a good catch and a safe journey before setting out to sea. In the 18th century after the town mayor declared the chapel detrimental to the beach, the monks relocated the chapel, brick-by-brick.
