Le Gin de Christian Drouin is an upscale gin crafted with 30 varieties of apples and eight botanicals, each of which is distilled separately. This results in a more complex gin with pronounced apple flavors. Enjoy it over ice in a balloon-shaped glass with tonic water and apple slices, or add ginger for a refreshing twist.
Crisp and bright with floral lavender and citrus, joined by a touch of caramel later on. Chewy juniper, fresh cherry and a touch of cinnamon.

About the Production
In order to create Le Gin de Christian Drouin Guillaume Drouin worked on finding seasoning that would best balance, complete and enhance juniper and cider apple. After distilling numerous plants separately, yet in the same way, a final selection of eight plants was made, all of them, with the exception of juniper, belonging to the aroma digest of premium Calvados. Creating harmony among these aromas was the next step, then adjusting the recipe and at last understanding that the process would enable only "small batches" to be assembled due to the one plant at a time distillation process. Le Gin is the only Gin incorporating 30 cider apples varieties and eight 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.
