INGREDIENTS

100natural

Cool and limpid, the water we use comes strictly from our well Font del Mas Petit.
This pure water, high in mineral content, is perfect for the full expression of the botanicals found in our gin.

These botanicals, all local, include:
Juniper berries, rosemary, fennel, pine shoots, and especially figs.

We then combine these botanicals from the remote mountains of the Priorat
with lemon peels from South-Catalonia to produce
an exquisite coastline mountain-range Mediterranean gin.

DISTILLATION

BCN Gin

 

In the 12th century, the Carthusian monks settled in the Priorat, newly reconquered from the Moors.
This mountainous region offers a vibrant and impressive landscape: a grand and mystical theatre where red rock, deep creeks, lush vegetation,
dark slate and bright green vineyards set the stage.

 

BCN Gin

 

The Priorat is famous for its complex and powerful wines, product of the region’s slate soil and ample sunlight.
Here, wines have to give their best if they want to survive.
The very essence, the fifth-essence, of the Cariñena and Grenache grapes is extracted by our magnificent copper four-plate Arnold Holstein distillation column.
This is only done with time, effort, craftsmanship, and utmost respect from the wine lees of the top DOQ Priorat and DO Montsant wines we work with.
Anything less will not do.

Gin distilled in the quiet mountains of the Priorat and savoured in roaring Barcelona.

Between tradition and modernity lie the roots of the spirit that transformed Barcelona in the capital of a new lifestyle.
BCN GIN bridges mountain and sea, nature and urbanity, tradition and modernismo.

With sparkling tonic, the bridge is complete: the common sense of Catalan rural life meets the Dionysian effervescence of Barcelona.

In 1916, Escofet Tejera & Co. was chosen by the council of Barcelona to pave the sidewalks of the city.
Since then, all who walk in Barcelona immediately recognise the typical BCN sidewalk motifs, symbol of the city

Vermut BCN

A new and unique vermouth for the true connoisseurs and all those who can appreciate the very best of what Mediterranean Barcelona has to offer.

Vermouth was born as a digestive medicine in Ancient Greece and is today the first step to a Mediterranean lifestyle. The culture of vermouth in Catalonia has passed from grandparents to grandchildren, from a classic family drink to a new fashion aperitif. Anar a fer el vermut (Going for a vermouth) is more than just an expression. It’s like the anar de tapes that chef Ferran Adrià defines as a way of life.

To craft our Mediterranean vermouth we use only old vine white Grenache grapes from the most southern Catalan wine region Terra Alta (High Land) where a dry wind from the river Ebro valley, known as Mestral and clayey soil, with a good lime content make up for the perfect circumstances to grow grenache blanc. Here we have more then 60% of the global production of this wonderful grape variety on vines born a century ago and twisted by age.

Our alcohol to fortify the white wine is hand distilled from selected wine lees from the native Priorat varieties Cariñena and Garnatxa in an Arnold Holstein copper still. Then we macerate a range of traditional vermouth botanicals such as cloves, angelica, cinnamon and wormwood in a mixture of pure natural water and the spirit extraction from the wine lees at room temperature for some weeks. But most importantly we distil local thriving Priorat mountain botanicals such as juniper berries, rosemary, elderflower and especially orange peel.

Aperitif time has always been sacred in Barcelona and Vermouth is today the most popular aperitif in town. Barcelona has many authentic vermuterias where the soda siphon and tapas are almost a religion.

Limited artisan vermouth handcrafted from Terra Alta old vine white Grenache grapes and Mediterranean botanicals fortified with an ‘eau-de-vie’ distilled from Priorato red Grenache and Carignan grapes. Dry and complex, with flavours of bergamot, elderflower, wild herbs and an outstanding touch of orange zest bitters.

Your favourite apero for a refreshing spritz with soda or simply neat on the rocks, a lime twist and green olive, this is also a fantastic vermouth to add extra depth and complexity to a dry martini or Negroni cocktail mixed with BCN GIN.
