• Gin

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 unrivalled taste
