38north 28 west gin azores


38ºNORTH 28ºWEST is an infused gin created on The Solar Branco Eco Estate. The name comes from the coordinates to the central point of the Azores islands.

The taste of the gin is unique. Infused with pineapple sage as it’s core ingredient, each additional botanical is added only as it is in season. In addition, every botanical added is grown on the estate, organic and pesticide-free. This creates a gin with a unique flavour, changing with the seasons. This effort results in a gin with a delicate hint of sweetness, set against the traditional bitterness of juniper and the tonic water.

Created in partnership with the Rocha Negra distillery, where Ali is a brand ambassador and helps the distillery with their own creations and limited-edition releases. 38ºN 28ºW gin is made in extremely small scale batches. You are welcome to enjoy a glass, take part in a masterclass on gin or learn on how to make your own here.

We also serve non-alcoholic gin and tonics.
