ABOUT THE PRODUCER
A bright blue Portuguese gin from the Sharish range - the fabulous blue colour is as a result of he extract of a flower known as the blue pea. What's so magical? - when you add the tonic this blue gin turns a bright pink! Botanicals also include juniper, coriander, angelica root, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, lemon peel, strawberry and raspberry.
Sharish Gin is made by António Cuco, who went from being unemployed to ginmaker almost overnight! António wanted to recover the smells and flavours of his childhood, such as the Apple Bravo de Esmolfe, which his Great-Grandmother gave him to eat at the borba fair, and the lucia-lima, an aroma that reminded him of the tea that his Grandmother of S. Manços prepared at lunchtime. To these memories he gathered the botanicals, citrus fruits and other ingredients, all from his own land, to reach the final formula of Sharish Gin.
