About Gin Mare
Sizable stories from small places.
Gin Mare started within the walls of a small, 13th Century Hermitage. Between the beginning and the mid-19th Century, monks moved the original building from a beach and rebuilt it, stone by stone, on its current location, a tiny fishing village where our Mediterranean gin production process is undertaken.
In 2010, Gin Mare took to the market after three years of research. The preliminary phase involved selecting, testing and tasting over a hundred botanical ingredients to then define the blend proportions. And here we are today.
The slightest details and the smallest places create surprising results!
