Innovation continues with a classic Gin made from apple Spirits and aged in Calvados casks.
 
For three generations the Drouin Family has been producing some of the finest Calvados in the Pays d’Auge region of northern France. Guillaume Drouin worked making Wines and Rums before taking the helm at the family business — Calvados Christian Drouin. They have a wide selection of both aged and un-aged Calvados and specialty Spirits
 
Le Gin de Christian Drouin Calvados Cask Finish starts with a base Spirit distilled from thirty different kinds of apples. This Spirit is transformed into Gin through the infusion of eight aromatic botanicals — including rose, lemon, ginger, vanilla, cinnamon, almond, cardamom, and juniper of course. Then this exceptional Gin is rested in ex-Calvados casks for six months in strictly limited quantities — brining out the apple notes which linger deliciously with the botanicals.
 
Smartass corner:
Calvados is an Eau de Vie made from apples in France. It gets its name from the Calvados region of Normandy that’s famous for producing this Spirit.

Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
