Rives is a 100% Spanish owned family company, established by Don Augusto Haupold, a German consul in Malaga and visionary entrepreneur. Gin Rives has been produced in El Puerto de Santa Maria since 1880, with extreme refinement and care, respecting the original recipe, which distinguishes its clean dry taste.
In 1976 they built a new modern distillery in El Palmar de Santa María in the province of Cádiz, with 30 metre high column stills, two large 100 year old John Dore copper pot stills, which are used for the distillation of the botanicals and a reverse osmosis water treatment plant.
A super premium hand crafted gin in small batches with a unique taste. Easy to drink yet powerful and complex; the result of a process in which no detail has been overlooked. Rives Special Gin is distilled directly from Juniper Berries and ten other seeds and natural plants in exclusive copper stills designed by the Master John Dore.
Tasting Notes: A high quality gin with a clean and lightly complex nose with subtle notes of juniper. On the palate the gin exhibits a perfect balance between the alcohol and the rich nuances of the botanicals. The finish is fresh and personal with an abundance of toasted almonds.
