Condesa Prickly Pear & Orange Blossom Gin
Founded in 2015, Flor de Luna is a pioneering micro-distillery located in the heart of Mexico City. With a tiny production crew of just five women including founder and Master Distiller, Hillhamn Salome, the team strives to create modern and exciting new spirits while paying tribute to the cultural and culinary heritage of Mexico.
The newest project from Flor de Luna, Condesa Gin is named for La Condesa, a leafy oasis in the heart of México City where ivy climbs over art deco buildings and tree-lined avenues lead to sun-drenched street corners. Where old meets new, calm meets vibrance, shade meets dappled sunlight. And of course, where Condesa gin is distilled.
This new release from Condesa was formulated to encapsulate a sunny Mexico City afternoon; a golden hour with friends, where the evening’s unwritten possibilities expand; Mexican springtime in a bottle. Botanicals include prickly pear, orange blossom, raspberry, juniper berries, coriander seeds and lime. The result is a fruity and floral gin with just enough juniper character to assert its gin bonafides. Bottled at 43% abv.
