Le Gin De Christian Drouin is a delightful, apple-based spirit with fresh green notes and a touch of spice.
A family business, established in sometime around 1960, Christian Drouin make a range of fine spirits and drinks. Using their extensive orchards, their most famous product is their calvados, though they have recently extended the range to include gin.
By taking a fine calvados and infusing it with juniper, ginger, vanilla, lemon, cardamom, cinnamon and rose, Christian Drouin have created something spectacular. Apple is obviously a key component to Le Gin De Christian Drouin but leafy, green herbs come through strongly as well warming pepper and earthy fruitiness. Despite the variety, this is not a fussy gin - it is light and exceptionally well balanced.
