Míl is an Irish pot still gin, distilled with fragrant Mediterranean botanicals and bursting with southern sunshine. The concept for Míl Gin began with a team of ‘ginthusiasts’ at the Pearse Lyons Distillery, based in the refurbished St. James Church in Dublin’s Liberties. Inspired by the links between this historic site and the Camino de Santiago in North-West Spain, where tradition has it St. James is buried, they began exploring recipes for an Iberian-Irish fusion gin. This voyage of discovery led them to Míl, the mythical Spanish warrior who’s descendants are said to have populated Ireland, bringing with them the warm flavours of the sun. Míl Gin captures the essence of this expedition, suffusing pure Irish gin with the taste of the sunny Iberian peninsula – land of Almonds, Basil, Bergamot Orange, Gooseberry, Juniper, Olive, Orris, Rosemary and Thyme.
Perfect serve: Míl Gin is best served with a wedge of grapefruit and a basil leaf
