Spain has been identified as a key market for gin for some time due to the immense popularity of the gin and tonic, with the country creating its own serve involving bulbous glasses and plenty of garnish.

Sales of gin have continued to boom in the country for over the past five years despite its economic bust. The story was no less true ion 2012 when Spain saw sales of 31.9 million litres of gin.
