Drouin has been a family active in Normandy for four generations now. The foundation took place in 1960 by Christian Drouin in Lower Normandy, in the Auge area. The real commercial expansion of calvados took place in 1989 under the leadership of Christian Drouin fils. All the orchards of the family are tall trees, as tradition requires, and there are many native varieties that have a low but constant yield, very qualitative.
To produce gin it is necessary to “aromatize” an alcoholic base with some elements of which one of the components or often the main one is juniper. This can happen in various ways: either through maceration of the botanicals in alcohol, which is then redistilled to find a colorless and “cleaner” product, or the botanicals can be placed in a container placed above the alembic, so that alcohol in the form of vapor extracts aromas and perfumes.
Crystalline color. On the nose symphony of notes of apples and pears, with balsamic and fresh hints and juniper. On the palate it finds the fruity notes, however imposing a more important spicy scent and alcohol on the finish.
Perfect at the end of a meal or as a meditation drink, excellent for creating high quality refreshing cocktails!
