THE world’s first gin made from 100% mango has been launched in Malaga.

The orange-coloured Ballix mango gin is made from the Osteen mango, grown in Malaga.

The gin is described as having an ‘incredible flavour and aroma’ and as being ‘soft and pleasant on the palate, delicate with natural and tropical flavors and with a base note of jasmine and juniper.’

The mango is marinated in premium gin for twelve hours and it takes half a kilo of the fruit to produce one litre.

The gin has no chemical additives and aims to be available in most bars and clubs within the next few months.
