“Excellent gin, cheap shop, not much of a tour.”

Xoriguer Gin Factory
Ranked #10 of 31 things to do in Mahon
Attraction details
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We booked what was advertised as a tour of the distillery as part of an excursion whilst on holiday. Basically, we were shown into a tasting room, our tour guide (who in all other aspects was absolutely brilliant), pointed through a window to a didused copper still, gave a brief outline of the gin and liquours available and told us to try anything that we wanted from a range of bottles on the table. I have to say that the range available was impressive, and we were able to try any number of them. The tasting room is part of the shop, so you can then pick which ever drinks that you liked, from the shelves. The prices were very competitive.
I stress that this was advertised as a tour by the company offering the excursion, and not a tour advertised by the distillery. I would imagine that they are two different things. Anyway, whichever way you look at it, it provided an excellent "try before you buy" opportunity, and (despite the lack of a tour of the distillery in our case), it is very much worth a visit.

Brilliant tasting facilities, so many flavours to choose from....just needed the allowance on display so that you could be sure to bring back as many bottles as you were allowed!

To find the gin factory is a must for all visitors. The history of it, the location of it all melts into one once you have visited. Take some minitures home and always remember where they came from.

Sample the delights of the Gin Distillary with its vast array of various samples of the local gin and liqueurs from the original English gin to modern day delights. A delight for the connoisseur .

Although this is not a factory where you can see the production of gin in any great detail, it is a great place to stop off and sample many of the locally produced liqueurs. There are a number of varieties to choose from and if you have a sweet tooth you may well like the one tasting of Turkish delight. There are some herbal ones as well and no limit to the free tasting. It is a primarily a place to buy your factory priced drinks and other souvenir and gifts to take home. Parking is not always on the doorstep but you may prefer to walk there anyway if you are all imbibing!
