Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Gin Mare to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

Gin Mare Bottling Note

Mediterranean gin distilled in a thirteenth century chapel in an ancient fishing village where every bottle is unique as every year the star product, arbequina olive, changes acidity. Gin Mare is made with a variety of botanicals including rosemary, thyme, basil with lots of zest. This stuff can easily be paired with a vast range of foods and ingredients if you fancy it.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Herbal nose with berry fruits. Hints of soapiness and perfume.

Palate: Very herbal and aromatic palate. Perfume-like delivery. Coriander and tart juniper, citrus zest.

Finish: Zesty, spiced finish.

Classy Gin

Classy Gin

25th September 2020


This herby gin benefits from sprig of thyme and rosemary and a few olives. I choose Fevertree Mediterranean tonic for preference. Easy to drink and delicious

8th August 2020


Intricate, interesting, makes you sit back an notice. Even my wife likes it!

17th June 2020

Stunning gin

An amazing tasting Gin. One of my favourites. Smooth, clear and crisp taste. Not the usual over flowery smell that some gins have this one smells citrusy like perfume!

11th June 2020

Perfect with ice and a slice

A fantastic Gin... I found out about this a few years ago and it is now my "go to" Gin. Light and refreshing with a unique taste due to the Mediterranean twist.

Don't over complicate with lots of garnish... ice and a slice over a mid range tonic is perfect.

13th May 2020

Beautiful quirky gin

A very unusual refreshing gin with a taste all of its own. The botanicals really do set this gin apart from your run of the mill gin. My husband and his friend happily finished up the remainder of our bottle in the garden chatting in the sunshine.

20th April 2020

Most definitely worth the money

First introduced to this a few years ago and has become my all time favourite. Beautifully paired with Fever tree Mediterranean tonic poured over strawberries and ice. For a sweet citrus taste pair with Fentimans pink grapefruit tonic.

6th March 2020

Not worth the money

Overated. For over £38 a bottle id rather have 3 bottles of standard supermarket gin. It was on on its own but did not mix well with tonic. Even a small amount of good quality tonic overpowered it.

30th November 2019

Martini Drinkers will love it.

The best extra dry dirty martini you can get! :)

Just stir with ice. Drain into straight up glass. Add 3 olives. Enjoy.

12th October 2019

Very good gin to drink straight on rocks

I’ve tried a bottle of gin mare and fount it absolutely the perfect drink for me. My criteria for an alcoholic drink are waking up energetic, no headache and brain clearness. I like to see more juniper in it.

3rd September 2019

Disappointed. Not enough flavour.

Was given to me as a gift. Not to my taste. My usual gin is tanqueray or Bombay sapphire. Sorry. Good looking bottle.

2nd September 2019

The best gin in my liquor cabinet!

A friend introduced us to Gin Mare and it’s now our all time favorite. Flavors are not harsh, subtle mix of botanicals, very smooth. I recommend trying it mixed with Fever Tree Elderflower tonic for the best gin & tonic ever.

31st July 2019

Love it!

Love love love it!!!!!!!!

8th April 2019

Love it!

I have some feedback for the comment down below saying:

"Very underwhelming, non-descript and hugely overpriced"

Gordon's? Really? I think your tastebuds died because you drank way to much Gordon's. Lol.

This gin is amazing on the palate. Herby and complex. Like monkey 47, but Mediterranean. Absolute must buy!

23rd March 2019


Not a bad gin per se but one where too many contrasting botanicals have been used. As a result it become muddled on the palate and extremely bitter to the taste! Would not be buying again!

12th January 2019

Smooth with delicate hints of citrus

Absolutely an amazing gin. Fruity nose with a hint of citrus. Had it neat just well chilled. The usual alcohol burn one expects is not present. Smooth mouth feel and yes, a very slight hint of olives.

Don’t think I would mix this with anything at all.

25th December 2018

One for the drinks cabinet, for sure.

Had it for the first time at a GinFest in Malta earlier this year. It was served with 1724 Tonic Water (same producers as Gin Mare), lemon peel, a sprig of rosemary and ice. Perfect drink for a warm Mediterranean evening. Definitely a keeper.

9th December 2018

Ok nothing special

Ok but rather disappointing considering the hype. There are better guns for far less money!

14th November 2018

A great gin that is unique and really shows the effort that is put into producing it. Drinks like a much more expensive gin.

Very elegant gin. The blend of citrus peels from orange and lemon from bitter to sweet along with the olive, thyme, and rosemary aromatics with basil back notes make for a lovely Martini that is savory, “mouthy”(my taste buds come to life,) and perfect for a pre feast aperitif. I look forward to coming home at the end of the week to build the perfect Martini to inspire my supper prep. I love it!

6th October 2018

tastes of black pepper, not suitable for cocktails

This is one of those heavily perfumed gins, but not in a good way. It has a peppery bite that is quite pervasive, and that, apparently, some people like a lot. I don't. It ruins a martini, and basically every cocktail you add it to. Well it may be suitable for a negroni, though I doubt it.

23rd July 2018

martini in a bottle

Its a high end extra extra dry martini in a bottle. All you need is a shaker. ;)

1st July 2018

Amazing and new taste!

Different than regular gin. The rosemary and olives are dominant. I have it with sparkling water. Less calories and the tonic tends to hide the Mediterranean flavors. Add lemon juice to your taste (optional).

25th May 2018

Great flavour

Love it. Instant Martini with nothing else needed

6th May 2018

Leave out the tonic!

Was introduced to this gin at a boutique hotel bar in Berlin. I am not a gin drinker but this is fabulous! It was served with a sprig of rosemary. It was my drink of choice throughout my travels in Germany. Unfortunately I can not find it in the US.

11th February 2018

Beautiful, sophisticated and elegant gin

With a sprig of rosemary and mediterranean tonic, this is my favourite gin.

17th October 2017

Great change from the usual.

Absoloutely divine! Tried it in Barcelona last week and bought 2 bottles to bring home. Love it!

16th October 2017

A really interesting 'take' on the queen of British spirits...

Love it - spicy and peppery gin- fabulous!

12th April 2017

Juste fabuleux

Extraordinaire gin à déguster l'été avec des tapas méditerranéens, sur glace, en Martini ou avec le Fever Tree mediterranean tonic.

10th April 2017

Met Gin Mare at the Hotel Arts in Barcelona....

Gin Mare is a wonderful Gin. It is excellent with Fever Tree Tonic, excellent in a dry Martini (no olives, lemon or lime twist instead). Gin Mare is the gin of Caledonia, and is much milder in its botanicals than most British and US Gins that rely on the Juniper Berry for the dominant Gin flavor. If you like pine trees.... drink British, US guns, then try Gin Mare..... no comparison. Hands down a better distilled spirit with more interesting botanicals.

13th March 2017

Over all it's a good gin

It's a nice gin ,, although it can be make a good cocktail like a gin sour ..

11th February 2017

Something a bit different from the usual Scottish Gin

Very herbous. Refreshing to the end

22nd October 2016

Subtle herbs, lots of citrus

Lovely herbaceous nose, but still a very fresh, citrusy, clean palate. Pleasingly memorable while remaining classic. Still makes a cracking G+T (Mediteranean of course!)

6th September 2016


Beginning to understand what a difference there is between gins, having had a rhubarb and ginger recently, which was fab, this beat it hands down, loved it. Great with Fever Tree elderflower

5th September 2016


Had it for the first time this week. Will definitely be purshasing a bottle or 2.

23rd August 2016


The most outstandingly gin i have had of yet.
The savoury tast is a new way of gin drinking compared to the fruit gins of the time.
Something different for the gin drinkers

14th August 2016


Is a nice mixer for this one

17th June 2016

Best Gin I've tasted.

Paired with Fever tree and rosemary... deliciously light and balanced. Reminds me of my time in Barcelona.

18th May 2016

Utterly amazing

Beautifully balanced, delicate, unusual. A stunningly different take on gin. Worth every penny

30th May 2015

Refreshingly delicate!

Tried this for the first time yesterday, served with Fever Tree tonic, a little ice and a slice of orange - as recommended by the bar tender. For me, this is the best gin I've tasted, not too dissimilar to Hendrick's with its 'herbie notes', but a little more delicate. Absolutely gorgeous, albeit pricey.

25th April 2015

Malta Gin Tastings

we recently sampled Gin Mare in Valletta (several times!) & it was served with lots of ice in a Gin Mare special glass & with a sprig of rosemary. It was very good & a change from Hendricks or Tanquery both of which we are rather fond.

10th April 2015

Tale of two gins

I love a G&T, but Gin Mare's herbal note was, for me, overpowering. I use a couple of neutral tonics and this seemed to amplified the soapy aspect of the flavour. I gave it another chance weeks later, as I had bought the bottle, and still not to my taste.
I then had an epiphany...cocktails! They tasted fantastic. I especially liked it in a simple gin and orange juice. Stunning. Tale of two gins

5th January 2015

Really Enjoyable

I was given a bottle of Gin Mare and found it to be so smooth and aromatic. Gin is my usual drink and I only like Gordons, but if it was not so expensive I would drink this instead.

4th January 2015


If you like gin to taste of gin don't bother with this - it's far too delicate for mixing (even a decent tonic an slice of lime obliterates it), and if you drink it neat or in a Martini then it doesn't taste like gin.
In fact, I doubt it meets EU regs which define gin as follows..."In all types of gin, the predominant flavour of must be juniper...".
he Chaps at Masters of Malt don't know what they're are doing frankly, given the hopelessly inaccurate notes above. Stick to whisky, chaps.

17th November 2014

The Best

This is the Gin that gets put in my basket at the airport duty free. This is my absolute favourite and so very unique. Ideal with ice, tonic and a sprig of basil.

18th October 2014

Something delighfully diferent

Gives of a wonderful aroma just sitting in your glass. I think this carries enough of it's own flavours without adding. Jus a little slim line for me.

17th October 2014


Getting a bottle on the advice of a friend of mine, will write back. Got to say 'Gin Connoisseur' might not be the right title to the person below me if you write of most British gins!

21st July 2014

Gin connoisseur

We were introduced to Gin Mare by the bartender at Hotel Arts (Ritz Carlton) in Barcelona in early July 2014. In a Martini it is served with a lemon twist and fresh basil leaf, accentuating its basil botanical and slight citrus flavor. In a gin and tonic, Gin Mare is served with Fever Tree tonic from the USA, a leaf of fresh basil and fresh lemon or lime at your request. It is 42.5% alcohol (85 proof) but very smooth and refreshing. Unlike most Gins with the over powering Juniper oil used as a botanical, Gin Mare does not smell or taste like any other Gin I have tasted. It is quite refreshing, and light. It certainly is a huge improvement over US and most British Gins. Hendricks Gin, with its cucumber botanical essence is a close rival but not as smooth or refreshing as Gin Mare. Truly an outstanding Gin product.

19th July 2014


It is very good and very different. We all expect gin to have juniper flavours, but that doesn't really need to be the case. This is lovely and refreshing and would make a nice G&T. As far as the price goes, it is high, but judging by the bottle, it seems they are going for an up-scale market. £30 would be about right for this.

8th June 2014

Very underwhelming, non-descript and hugely overpriced

Brought some back from Spain and was really excited about it. Sadly, I honestly wouldn't know this wasn't Gordon's.

5th May 2014

Great idea, but mm

Great idea, great combination - lacking a bit of balance though when you look a price tag

13th April 2014

Possibly the best gin in the extended universe

This is stunning stuff. Highly recommended. Gin will never be the same again. Enjoy with a fresh spring of rosemary and a splash of tonic and lots of ice.

3rd February 2014

Unique but delicious!

This was recommended at Rubi's Gin Bar in Barcelona when we asked for something a 'bit different'. It is very tasty with the Thyme and Rosemary coming through, thus making it a great drink with lamb or beef.
