I know what you’re thinking: gin is originally Dutch and quintessentially British. But Portugal has seen a huge rise in gin-drinking in recent years. Gin bars have sprouted up all over big cities, with dozens – sometimes hundreds – of varieties of gin. Often served in over-sized glasses, gin cocktails composed of various types of tonic waters and countless fruits and herbs, have been very popular for several years now. The younger Portuguese generations especially have completely embraced this gin revolution. And of course, it was only a matter of time before the Portuguese took this interest to the next level and began producing their own Portuguese gin… Wine continues to be Portugal’s alcoholic beverage of choice. But gin no longer occupies a small section in the alcoholic drinks aisle in supermarkets: nowadays, it occupies its own aisle. It’s a serious business and one that’s producing results. So maybe next time you’re visiting Portugal, you should consider taking home not just a few bottles of your favourite wine, but also a bottle of a Portuguese gin you may have tried (and loved) on a night out.
I’ve made it my (very tough) mission to try and sample every single Portuguese gin and once I do, I’ll write a full report on each one. For now, however, I’ll just introduce you to a few Portuguese brands to watch out for next time you’re in Portuguese and you can tel me which one is your favorite.
