A blue Gin that’s anything but gimmicky.

Magellan Gin is named after a Spanish explorer, Ferdinand de Magellan. In 1519, he led five ships on a voyage to circumnavigate the globe and explore the spice islands. Sadly only one returned, but with it came several barrels of cloves; a key botanical in Magellan Gin.

Produced at the Angeac Distillery in the Cognac region in France, Magellan Gin is made using 11 natural botanicals from around the globe. The process starts with the fermentation of wheat grain and local spring water, which is naturally filtered through limestone and demineralized to avoid changing the botanical flavors. The mash is triple distilled before fresh, hand-picked botanicals are added to the mix and redistilled for the fourth time. The master distiller, thanks to years of expertise, takes the heart cut of the Gin, discarding the rest.

Finally, the Gin is infused with fresh iris flowers and roots which impart a pale blue color - yep, that’s a natural blue color - and floral aroma. Magellan Gin makes a brilliant Aviation cocktail - the iris botanical plus creme de violette make perfect bedfellows.

About the Flavor Spiral
What does Magellan Gin taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Magellan Gin and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
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.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
