The Gin Library

EUROPE’S LARGEST GIN COLLECTION

The Gin LIbrary

The Gin Library, on São Miguel island in the Azores, houses the private gin collection of gin expert Ali Bullock, with over 1,000 different bottles of gin. The Gin Library also showcases Baleia Gin. This is an award winning gin created by Ali and produced on the island of São Miguel. 

Helping Ali to run The Gin Library are our Librarians, Lemon (head librarian.) and her assistants, Sr Miguel (senior librarian) and Nuno (assistant librarian). These former street cats now spend their days greeting guests, sitting on their laps, stealing their snacks and then having a nap. 

The Gin Library is located in Livramento, just outside of Ponta Delgada, on the grounds of The Solar Branco Eco Estate. Please note: Strictly adults only. Guests visiting The Gin Library are not permitted to bring babies or children under 16.
