Le Gin de Christian Drouin
Award Winning Small Batch French Gin
Christian Drouin is a well-known and much-adored Calvados producer for three generations. They have create a base spirit from 30 varieties of cider apple from Normandy, and have taken inspiration from the flavours frequently found in Calvados to come up with the botanical recipe, which features juniper, lemon, ginger, rose, cardamom, cinnamon, vanilla and almond.
This gin is well-balanced with a great viscosity, simultaneously reveals finesse and incredible aromatic precision. Crisp and bright with floral lavender, citrus, 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.
