Last night saw the official launch of an exciting new Irish gin to the market. Míl Gin kicked off the summer with Mediterranean flair in the the beautiful surroundings of House, Leeson Street. Míl Gin is the brand new Irish pot still gin packed with a Spanish punch.
This full flavoured gin is produced in small batches and distilled with beautifully paired flavours of basil, almond, bergamot, gooseberry, juniper, rosemary, olives and thyme.
This stunning gin is making a name for itself on the international market with launches planned worldwide in the coming months. Offering up flavours of the Mediterranean and fragrant botanicals, this is a must try for all gin lovers.
The beginning of Míl Gin started at Pearse Lyons Distillerys, located in the refurbished St.James Church in the Liberties, Dublin. The passionate team of ‘ginthusiasts’ were inspired by the surroundings of St.James Church and its ties to the Camino de Santiago in North-West Spain. According to legend, the apostle St.James is buried here.
On a journey of exploration the team was lead to a mythical Spanish warrior named Míl. Míl is said to have been the ancestor of the Milesians, the final inhabitants of Ireland, who arrived from the Iberian Peninsula, bringing with them the vibrant flavours of the Mediterranean sun.
Míl Gin perfectly captures the rich history of this voyage, mixing pure Irish gin with the zing of the Iberian Peninsula. Míl Gin serves up summer aromas of thyme, basil, rosemary and juniper, bursting with fresh bittersweet flavours and a clean citrus finish. Allteach Beverage Division Ireland (ABDI) officially launched Míl Gin to the delight of guests to the event.
Commenting at the launch, Conor Ryan, Global Spirit Ambassador of ABDI said, “Míl offers a distinct herbiness which makes it stand out among the other premium gin products on the market.”
The exciting new gin is totally unique and is the perfect beverage for those wanting a taste of the sunshine. Speaking on Míl Gin’s uniqueness, Conor said, “there is literally nothing on the Irish market like Míl”.
