Le Gin de Christian Drouin Gin 70cl
Christian Drouin Le Gin is a multi award-winning gin. They are known as a calvados producer, but they have put aside their French traditions to create the only gin produced by the distillation of ciders in three small Normandy copper pots.
To create Le Gin de Christian Drouin Guillaume Drouin has been working on finding seasoning that would best balance, complete and enhance juniper and cider apple.
After distilling separately numerous plants, in the same way as a great blend is assembled, a final selection of 8 plants was made, all of them, with the exception of juniper, belonging to the aroma universe of premium Calvados.
Creating harmony among these 8 aromas was the next step. Le Gin is the only Gin incorporating 30 cider apples varieties and 8 different aromatics. Each aromatic is separately distilled before being blended in proportions that are unique to each batch.
Rose and lemon provide delicacy. Ginger, vanilla, cinnamon and almond give the Gin a smooth, spicy body while cardamom enhances its fruit and roundness in the mouth. Juniper and apple complement one another with their heavy or high notes, spicy or crisp.
In Normandy, the passion shared by the last three generations of the Drouin family has been making calvados. Curiosity, a sense of history and the value of meticulous craftsmanship have enabled Christian Drouin Calvados to win more than 200 gold medals in spirits competitions.Read more...
