Sharish // Portugal
Sharish Gin starts as a neutral spirit made from 50% molasses and 50% mix of wheat and rice. Each botanical is then separately cold infused for a period of between 30 days and 9 months, depending on the ingredient. The master distiller, António Cuco grows a few of his own botanicals: lemons, oranges and Bravo de Esmolfe apples which are unique to Portugal. The other botanicals are juniper (from Macedonia), coriander, cinnamon, cloves and bourbon vanilla.
Modern GinAlso has been referred to as "Contemporary", "New Western", "New Wave", and "New American". This style is not legally defined. In general, this category of gin, while it does contain juniper, places less of an emphasis on this botanical. Other botanicals not classically used in London Dry gins are often utilized and often highlight botanicals grown in the region the gin is produced. Most produced as either London Dry or Distilled Gins.
