This cocktail is inspired by a beautiful village on the island of Menorca. The village of Mahón is famous for cheese and for those in the know, this gin as well. The gin is grape based, utilizes botanicals that grow natively in Menorca and made in wood-fired copper pot stills that are centuries old. This cocktail is meant to evoke the feeling of sitting on a secluded beach in the Mediterranean.
