|Making process||Produced by distillation of ciders in three small Normandy copper pot stills, and by the distillation of Juniper and seven other aromatic plants typical of the world of Calvados (ginger, vanilla, lemon, cardamom, cinnamon, rose petals and almonds). Each one is distilled separately before being blended in unique proportions for a batch of 2,850 bottles.
It is the first batch of Christian Drouin Gin, the only Gin incorporating 30 apples.
|Pairing||Aperitif as a long drink, cocktail or digestive|
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.
Remarkably well-balanced, it simultaneously reveals finesse and incredible aromatic precision. Proud of its Normandy roots, the nose opens with wafts of apple. Little by little, it becomes liquorice-inspired, herbaceous and peppery. Full of energy, the opening on the palate is floral and fruity. The back of the palate offers freshly cut quarters of apple and a voluptuous nose.
