Gin distillery apparatus in Mahon at Xoriguer Distillery

Gin, Sin and the Xoriguer Distillery in Menorca

Menorca threw several surprises my way when I visited. Wild flowers, for one, with fields flush with poppies, violets and periwinkles all dancing like hippies in the sun. There were bronze age settlements for another, and olive oil-soaked cheese, cured lovingly by hand and made from milk gathered freshly that morning.
