Baleia Gin


Named after the Portuguese word for whale, Baleia Gin is distilled overlooking the never-ending Atlantic Ocean on the island of São Miguel in the Azores. Every bottle sold helps to support whale conservation projects. Baleia Gin has partnered with the World Cetacean Alliance to support the designation of the first internationally recognised Whale Heritage Site in The Azores.  This highlights the international importance of the archipelago to our understanding, preservation and conservation of these majestic creatures of the deep blue ocean.

Baleia Gin blends traditional botanicals such as juniper, rosemary and cardamon with seaweed sourced from the waters around the islands. The gin has an exceptionally smooth flavour, mixing a touch of sweetness with the saltiness of the ocean.

São Miguel based gin expert Ali Bullock, owner of the world-renowned Gin Library bar, conceptualised and created Baleia Gin in partnership with Azorean producer Lima & Quental. Artwork drawn by local artist Catarina Limão. Made in extremely small scale batches. You are welcome to enjoy this very special gin at The Gin Library or take part in a masterclass on gin here.
