Located in the heart of Pays D’Auge, the Calvados Christian Drouin estate gates open into ambling apple orchards, 17th century half-timbered structures, and manors that house its picturesque distillery. Set up in 1960, the family-run distillery preserves Normandy’s great tradition of craft Calvados, with over 30 varietals of apples in its artisanal blends of apple brandy. The apple orchards also find expression in the distillery’s eclectic offerings of traditional French spirits; cider, Peary, Pommeau de Normandy and yes, even gin.
Guillaume Drouin, a third generation Drouin, developed his passion for gin while promoting Calvados among mixologists from Europe’s best bars. Over there, his experimentations inspired him to marry the aromatic expressions of gin with the apple varietals from his estate. And voila, Le Gin was born, a child of two great drink-making traditions.
LE GIN, CHRISTIAN DROUIN
42% Abv – 700ml
An ode to the art of hand-crafted blends, Le Gin is a small batch gin that expertly blends 30 varietals of double distilled apple cider with eight individually distilled botanicals. The result — an artisanal Norman gin that unravels elegant complexities in its delicate balance of flavours with great finesse and aromatic precision. It’s no surprise then, that it raked in 9 awards in 2018 alone, including the Gold medal at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Tasting Notes: True to its roots, the gin opens with crisp and bright wafts of apple, leading into a smooth and cardamom spiced body that leads to a luscious roundness in the mouth finishing with clean crisp high notes of cinnamon. This is drink is pure delight and needs nothing but a glass of ice, and maybe a slice of apple, for all its flavours to play out on your senses.
