Baleia Gin is the name of the gin that we infuse on the estate at The Gin Library with only local fruits and botanicals. The name means Whale in Portugese and it is inspired by the whales that call the waters around the Azores home.
Our gin infusions are unique to each batch and made in limited quantities of 10 bottles or less. Each infusion is a taste of the Azores, from the local organic fruits to the botanicals used, many on the estate itself. Infusions include, Azorean Summer Strawberry, Azorean Raspberry and the Orange 1800 edition. As each season rolls into the island it brings a new edition. We are always happy to make bespoke bottles, unique to you. Guests are welcome to send us an email in advance and we will see what we can create for you.
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. Baleia Gin is made in extremely small scale batches. You are welcome to enjoy a glass, take part in a masterclass on gin here.
We also serve non-alcoholic gin and tonics.

The Gin Library: Child Policy
If you wish to bring children to The Gin Library, we can organise a private event for you with a tile painting experience included. This means you can enjoy your Gin & Tonics in peace, and the children are entertained. After all, parents need a holiday as well. Please contact us in advance here to arrange an available time slot.
