Eva & Stefan both have degrees in wine making and have been working and consulting for more than 10 years for a variety of wineries, mainly in Mallorca, but also in Germany, Catalonia and California.
In 2010 – before the big Gin-hype began, they distilled their first batch of Gin for a winery they were working for and enjoyed it so much, they decided to open their own distillery. They started GinEva in 2012 – a regional Artisan hand crafted Gin focusing on local ingredients from Mallorca such as fresh citrus and juniper.
“Eva and I enjoy the freedom of creating spirits, it’s like being a chef and having an immediate result, very different to growing grapes and then producing the wine!
We love good drinks and food and we like to go to cocktail bars. Our favourite cocktails are Sours, but nothing can beat a wet Martini, preferably with Fino Sherry instead of Vermouth.”
Besides juniper infused alcohol they have been distilling cacao beans, hazelnuts, all kind of citrus fruits, anise, fennel, olives, carob, wild herbs and spices and many more.
“Some distillates we created were remarkable, some curious and others will never see the light of the day.”
The number of experimental distillates kept growing and in 2017 they decided to bottle their favorites, as ARTISAN SPIRITS by Eva Maier Gómez & Stefan Winterling. A small uniquely created but steadily growing collection of Spirits and Liqueurs.
