Nordés is an exciting Atlantic Spanish gin that showcases distinctive salty, floral and citrus flavors which evoke the forests and coastlines of its home, Galicia. Emphasizing indigenous Galician ingredients, Nordés aromatics draw on bay laurel, lemon verbena, eucalyptus and even a maritime plant known as salicornia— combinations not found anywhere else!
All 11 of the botanicals macerate in a base that includes another beloved Galician export: Albariño wine. The inclusion of wine in the base spirit lends to a silky but light texture, making Nordés a perfect fit for elegant cocktails. With such a gastronomic botanical profile, Nordés also has the unique ability to pair with food, and has been embraced by many acclaimed chefs in Spain.
About The Importer
Olé & Obrigado is a boutique importer of artisanal wines from Spain and Portugal that proudly connects over 40 family wineries to customers across the United States. Says founder Patrick Mata, "In addition to sharing our passion for Iberian wine culture, we are committed to connecting the US market with authentic experiences and must-try products. In 2020, we were recognized by Wine & Spirits as an Importer of the Year, and we are thrilled to announce the next evolution of our portfolio as the exclusive US importer of Nordés Gin thanks to our partners, the Osborne family."
This aromatic gin has been celebrated by the US press (Saveur, "The Best Gins from Spain"; Wine Enthusiast, "Top 100 Spirits 2020") and thousands of in-the-know gastrotourists to Spain. While the launch of Nordés Gin represents a new category for Olé & Obrigado, it finds a perfect home within the portfolio: since its founding in 1999, the company has imported over two dozen unique Albariño wines, and hosts a yearly celebration (El Camino del Albariño) dedicated to showcasing the diversity and versatility of this important grape.
Nordés makes its debut late spring 2021 in several major markets: New York, Boston, Washington DC, Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, and northern and southern California. A full national expansion is planned for 2022. Nordés Gin will be available at fine retailers (SRP $40 and under, 750ml), on innovative craft cocktail lists, and in restaurant programs that embrace cutting-edge and innovative wine and spirits.
