In 1519, five ships led by Ferdinand de Magellan set out to circumnavigate the world and explore the “spice islands.” Three years later, only the ship Victoria returned to Spain, with 18 people and several barrels of cloves. Sadly, Magellan, who died in battle during the voyage, never saw the results of his spice discoveries. Those spices inspired the creation of Gin as we now know it, and it is to cloves in particular, that Magellan Gin owes its unrivaled taste. Cloves are a unique botanical to Magellan Gin.
Magellan Gin is indeed a blue color. It is bottled in a clear glass so you can admire the spirit inspired by Magellan’s travels between the blue sky and deep blue sea.
