Given the preponderance of blue gins in the late 10’s and early 20’s, I think it’s fair to say that they may have been the original blue gin.
Unlike many blue gins on the market today which utilize butterfly pea flowers for a color-change trick, Magellan Gin achieved its color by macerating orris roots and flowers in the gin after distillation
Nose: Magellan gin has a bite to it that you might not expect upon first smell. It’s a bit spicy with a fair hit of heat.
Flavor: Coriander, cloves, nutmeg, oily bitter orange rind and a touch of herbaceous juniper. The finish is more peppery with less floral nuance than you might expect.
