Overview
Rocha Negra Gin is distilled here on the island of São Miguel, a place where black volcanic rock meets the pristine blue Atlantic ocean. Rocha Negra means “Black Rock” and honours the island, formed millions of years ago, from molten lava fighting the sea. Rocha Negra is intrinsically linked to the environment of the Azores. It is on this coastline with its unrelenting and unforgiving jagged edged rocks, that the botanicals found in Rocha Negra grow. It is fair to say that Ali knows something about gin. From a collection spanning almost 400 bottles, one of the largest collections in the world to the history of gin, he is a welcoming host to all. Having "tested" (OK, tasted) thousands of gin and tonics from all corners of the globe. From the busling bars of downtown Bangkok, to the worlds most predicious gin bar in Singapore to the best of London's Gin bars.

Delightful experience! Ali was a charming and excellent host into the world of gin and tonics. A great antidote to a rainy afternoon - hanging out in a stunning gin library on an estate in the spectacular azorean landscape.
