Purple Valley Imports Introduces Mahon Gin from Spain

Mahon GinSeptember 12, 2014 – Arriving in America for the first time Mahon Gin is one of only 3 Geographically Designated Gins in the world. First produced in 1708 to satisfy the British navy that was stationed on the island of Menorca, Mahon Gin is still produced using the original recipe.

In the early part of the 18th Century, the island of Menorca was a British Naval Port as part of the defense against Napoleon. MAHÓN GIN was first introduced in 1708 to satisfy the thirst of the British Navy, after which Gin became a wildly popular island drink, still to this day.

Produced in small batches, using centuries’ old wood fired copper stills and a long held secret botanicals recipe by the owning Pons family, MAHÓN GIN has become an iconic Mediterranean spirit, and a standard for distinctive world class craft Gin.


  • COLOR: clear with a platinum cast
  • NOSE: deeply floral evoking lemongrass, verbena and dusty cedar, redolent of freshly cut flowers.
  • PALATE: starts off with juniper, then distinctively floral with subtle spice and lemon zest undertones. Shows lovely silkiness and complexity on the mid-palate.
  • FINISH: long lingering and rich, yet balanced with great freshness.
  • COMMENTS: uniquely distinctive and delicious, as stunning as is the island of Menorca. This artfully composed Gin makes beautiful G&T’s, and shines in craft cocktails. TERRIFIC GIN….

The first shipment of 1200 bottles arrives September 15th and will be available in select markets. Bottled in traditional 1 liter caneta style bottles Mahon Gin has an SRP of $47.99.
