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.

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.

As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
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.
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.
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.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
