CREATE YOUR OWN LUCK | Gin 13 with a youthful appearance, light notes of hops but with a fresh and citric ending palate. This Gin transmits the mystic message that one can create his/her own luck, therefore its name. The bottle design also approaches both the unlucky number and luck symbolism, thus the use of the black cat, clover and skulls. The 13th ingredient of this Gin is the hop, which tends to be also used in beer brewing.
Gin 13 is the first Portuguese gin with thirteen botanicals in its recipe. It contains juniper, coriander seed, lemon, tangerine, cardamom, ginger and almond. Furthermore,, angelica root, liquorice, lemon grass, jasmine flower, black tea and hops. It is distilled in traditional Portuguese stills: the alcohol is distilled from grain four times, then distilled again with all the botanicals added, except for the lemon and the lemon grass, which are added to the botanicals basket. Next to this gin, the distillers also bring you a raspberry infused gin.

This gin envelops bright zesty orange and a bit of liquorice on the tongue. There is also an underlay of spiciness from cardamon and peppery juniper. This is quite the refreshing gin, albeit with a warm herbal undertone.
