Le Gin de Christian Drouin

Le Gin de Christian Drouin the only Gin incorporating 30 apple varieties. 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 and high notes, spicy and crisp.

Guillaume Drouin has created this hand-crafted Gin using the art of blending developed for classic spirits. It is 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. Each one is distilled separately before being blended in unique proportions for a batch of 2,850 bottles.

Even before he began to sell his calvados, Christian Drouin the elder was in the habit of entering samples of his vintages in the wine and spirit competitions in Normandy and Paris. It was here that he won his first medals. Two generations later the company can display 195 Gold Medals obtained in such competitions, including the Best European Spirits Producer title at the IWSC in London in 2013.

As head of the Calvados Christian Drouin company, Guillaume Drouin represents the third generation of a family that has always been fascinated by the search for a perfect balance between different aromas and flavours.

Guillaume Drouin is a qualfied oenologist and agronomist. After acquiring experience in the fields of wine-making and rum he joined the family business in 2004. Working with his father on the aging of calvados, he took part in the creation of the company’s great blends while looking for new product ranges that would highlight original aromatic associations.

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 our work process would enable us 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.
