To best enjoy the therapeutic and marine qualities of Rétha Oceanic Gin, what could be better than a bracing ocean tonic? Pour 50ml of Rétha Oceanic Gin over a good handful of ice cubes in a highball glass. Top with your favourite tonic water, and for maximum authenticity, garnish with a leaf of mertensia maritime (commonly known as oysterleaf). The oyster flavour of the plant brings out to perfection all of the Atlantic notes of the gin. When you sip it, you can almost hear the seagulls.Back to shop

When you taste Rétha Oceanic Gin, you’ll experience a vivid and tonic start, giving way to saline notes, with a burst of orange peel, ginger and citrus, and a long peppery finish, enrobed in a soft, mineral, slightly viscous texture.
The Île de Ré is a small island off the west coast of France. Across the water from the ancient city of La Rochelle, the Île de Ré has a long and varied history. Over the centuries, it has changed hands between the French and the British, and hosted a fair few battles of its own. Nowadays, it’s a peaceful, charming Atlantic location, filled with oyster sellers and shell-encrusted beaches.
Creators Jérôme and Morgan invented Rétha in order to pay homage to the Île de Ré, and the surrounding Atlantic Ocean. Rétha Oceanic Gin is their tribute to the sea. Using wrack seaweed freshly gathered from the shores of the island, they built up a flavour palate designed to reproduce a walk along the beach, breathing in the fresh sea air.
Each ingredient that goes into Rétha Oceanic Gin is distilled separately, using a steam-powered still. In this way, all the flavours stay as sharp and authentic as the original fresh products. The painstaking blending process builds up a balanced flavour palate, in the hopes of best encapsulating the character of the Atlantic. The maritime tones of the seaweed are balanced with notes of juniper berry, ginger, pepper, and lemon, creating a unique and harmonious array of marine notes.
Rétha was created by local Île de Ré distillers Jérôme and Morgan, in a bid to pay homage to this lovely island. Their spirits are produced in a nearby microdistillery, just over the water in mainland Charentes. By using fresh, local ingredients, and paying careful attention to the precise blending process, they have successfully managed to capture the unique personality and charm of the Île de Ré and the surrounding Atlantic Ocean.More on the Brand
