There is no doubt about Spain being a major player in the international gin business. Wint & Lila is further proof of the impeccable status of Spain's master distillers. The London dry gin is manufactured in the coast village of Puerto de Santa María, which is also the headquarters of the innovative soft drink brand Indi & Co.
It counts with seven different little stills, having each one of them its own personality and contributing with different tints, which enable them to make little ‘tailored-distilleries’. These are done without direct fire over the stills, using the “Bain-Marie” system. This way, you can get a more delicate and slower process, where the different botanical essences are extracted without being altered. After it’s been done, they’re -let to rest- during several weeks, before doing the ‘coupage’ (cutoff) between them and add them the purified water. WINT & LILA is afterwards bottled and with a customized cork, which emulates the pharmacists of the ancient bottles back then.
In Cadiz, April the 25th 1645, Juan de Wynt and Sweerts (Knight of the Calatrava Order) and Margarita de Lila Blanco, both of Flemish-origin, were dedicated to the maritime trading between Spain and America. With their union, one of the best Sea Carrier Companies was built.
Juan de Wynt and Carlos de Lila and Van Thune (Margarita’s father), belonged to one of the families from Diest (Duchy of Brabante), where the Wynts had the Dolincohen Castle, and due to the religious wars back in the times of Alexandre de Farnesio, he was forced to defect to Yprés city. Through this company, they trade a great deal of liquors from the traditional distilleries that existed in the Guadalquivir Valley back then.
