70cl / 38% - A cult gin from Mahon in Menorca, Xoriguer is one of the only gins in the world (alongside Plymouth) to have a geographical indication, Gin de Menorca. Gin has been made on Menorca since the 18th century British occupation and Xoriguer commands a devoted following of happy travellers. Unusually, Xoriguer is made in wood-fired potstills from distilled wine (eau-de-vie) rather than the more usual grain-based distillate, and is rested in oak barrels before bottling.

Night Scented Jasmine was originally created by Mr Floris in 1806.

Warmed by touches of rose and mimosa, the floral heart is sustained by long lasting soft musks, sweet amber and sandalwood base notes.

We decided to book a package holiday so that we had someone to hold responsible if something went...

Review of Menorca (Spain)
Advantages: peaceful Disadvantages: .....almost too peaceful
...I didn't have the greatest experience in Menorca, which I can partly blame myself for due to the lack of planning along with a desperate urge to get away from the 9-5. However, I can't be held completely responsible. Perhaps some of you can even learn from my mistakes......I know I have!
The plan was a last minute get away, short flight, somewhere peaceful and sunny, that was easy...

Review of Menorca (Spain)
Advantages: Great sights, lovely weather, fantastic location Disadvantages: None
I have just returned back today from Menorca, and had such a fantastic time, I wanted to share my experience in case anyone is looking for a brilliant holiday in the near future.
Myself and my partner arrived in Mahon (the recently made capital of Menorca) on 4th May 2007. We were travelling with Thomas Cook, and had booked a week in the Valentin Star Hotel (4*) located in Cala N...
