Le Gin is produced from cider and 8 different botanicals. Among these botanicals are juniper, ginger from Brazil, vanilla from Madagascar, lemon, cardamom, cinnamon from Indonesia, almonds and roses.
The particularity in the production of Le Gin is that the base spirit is made from apples! The base spirit is distilled from 30 different cider apple varieties, coming from the orchards of the Drouin family. The cider apples were selected carefully, so that sweet, sour and bitter types were used.
The apples are harvested in autumn from the fruit orchards and are ground and pressed afterwards. The resulting must ferments slowly during winter and is then distilled 2 times in 3 small copper pot stills.
