BCN Gin is a product that a lot of people have spent a lot of time waiting for. The world is full of aged BCN airport tags clinging to suticases, their owners proudly continuing to display the spoils of their travels. BCN Gin can help go one step further than just warm memories. If you?re sitting in rainy Britain and wondering how you?ll ever recover the glory of Catalonia ? BCN Gin is for you. It?s a gin that?s Catalonian through and through ? dripping in Mediterranean steez in style and taste. BCN Gin, which is available to purchase in the online shop here at Urban Drinks, is both a highlight of the contemporary gin scene and a bottled taste of Barcelona. We?ll introduce BCN Gin a bit more, but we hope it?s clear already that this isn?t one to miss, whether you?re a steeled gin veteran or a latecomer to the scene.
Unlikely gin components make BCN Gin an innovative must-try
Barcelona is well-known as a culturally diverse and unique city ? a town with spirit. That?s as literally as figuratively true nowadays thanks to BCN and BCN Gin. The BCN brand created a product with BCN Gin that makes use of exotic and unusual gin ingredients. Of course BCN Gin is really centred on juniper berries. But the supporting cast of this gin contains a few less familiar features. The finest grapes, pine shoots, fennel, rosemary, and lemon peel, all of which are locally sourced, lend BCN Gin a selection of loud Mediterranean aromas and a regionally reflective character. From the Priorat Mountains where distillation takes place to the glowing city of Barcelona where this gin really settles at home, BCN Gin?s roots are deep. A classic Mediterranean gin with a singular and exciting set of flavours and aromas.
BCN Gin the unusual gin = BCN Gin the wonderful gin
By a long way, grapes are a lot less commonplace in the world of gin than lemon peel. BCN Gin has both. And the BCN Gin experiment has yielded cracking results. (By the way, doesn?t BCN sound like the name of a rough grime crew? We like it.) So; the BCN gang places a high value on using only the finest ingredients. They use Cariñena and Grenache grapes, famously tasty sorts that are grown in the wine producing Priorat region in the centre of Catalonia. Shock the Catalonians want to keep it local. The grapes are distilled five times for BCN Gin, and their essence leaves the gin with a pleasantly potent grape side. Mineral water from the ?Font del Mas Petit? brings the spirit to 40% volume and ensures a crystal clear character. We recommend sipping BCN Gin pure at least once; the rich Mediterranean profile of the spirit will prove itself well worth it.
If you know the ends in Barcelona, you might well recognise that sleek logo on the BCN Gin bottle. The flower design is the very same that lines the streets in the district of Eixample. We reckon BCN Gin has found design inspiration in the right place here ? the bottle looks sick and the logo too. If you?re looking for inspiration for BCN Gin, which by the way is (obviously) available to purchase in the online shop here at Urban Drinks, have a dig at the Raspberry Thyme Smash:
- 60ml BCN Gin
- 30ml lime juice
- 6-7 raspberries
- 25ml sugar syrup
- A twig of rosemary
Put the thyme and the raspberries in the shaker and muddle them up. Add the gin, the lime juice and the sugar syrup, and shake. Strain over a lowball glass and garnish with some thyme and another raspberry or two.
