Christian Drouin Gin is based on a neutral spirit aromatised with distilled apple cider. The distillate comes from more than 30 different cider apple varieties. Bitter, bitter-sweet, sweet and tart varieties are all represented, forming a rich, complex aromatic palette. In the autumn the apples are grated and pressed. The 'must' thus obtained ferments slowly during the cold winter months and is then double-distilled in small copper pot stills the following year. The cider spirit obtained in this way gives Christian Drouin Gin its roundness and delicacy, and also its crispness. Cider spirit is well known for its digestive properties.

Guillaume Drouin has created his hand-crafted Gins using the art of blending developed for classic spirits. It is produced by distillation of ciders in small copper pot stills, and by the distillation of Juniper and seven other aromatic plants typical of the world of Calvados. Each one is distilled separately before being blended in unique proportions for a batch of 2,850 bottles.

Guillaume had to find seasoning that would best balance, complete and enhance juniper and cider apple. After distilling separately numerous plants, in the same way as a great blend is assembled, a final selection of 8 plants was made, all of them, with the exception of juniper, belonging to the aroma universe of premium Calvados. Creating harmony among these 8 aromas was the next step, then adjusting the recipe and at last understanding that his work process would enable him only to create small batches as the one plant at a time distillation process imposes to keep adjusting proportions so as to obtain the best possible blend.

Serving suggestion: Christian Drouin Gin is prepared like any great blended spirit. The balance, elegance and complexity allow it to be drunk straight or with ice. This is without doubt the best way to appreciate the subtlety and delicacy of its flavours. Gin & tonic: For those who prefer a tonic with their gin, Christian Drouin recommend using a large balloon glass filled with ice, and adding two thin slices of freshly-cut apple, and possibly a thin slice of ginger, to your preferred Gin & Tonic ratio (we recommend 1:3 gin to tonic).
