A unique French Gin from a Calvados-making family.
Pierre is the third-generation of the Domaine du Coquerel family that has been producing Calvados in their distillery since 1937. After traveling in India, he was inspired by the abundance of exotic spices they have over there and so the idea for Gin Normindia was born.
Pierre then found an old recipe in an old family book that dated back to 1765 that was approved by the then King of France, Louis XV. The Spirit was called 'La Chymie du Goût et de l’Odorat', which basically means the chemistry of flavors and aromas. He went to work and began experimentation: 42 macerations and 33 micro-distillations later, the final recipe was reated.
Gin Normindia is 100% produced at the family estate. The maceration lasts for 4 to 12 days in a stainless steel vat before the Gin is distilled in the smallest Calvados copper still, yielding 10,000 bottles per batch. The recipe is comprised of 15 botanicals, including apple, orange, cinnamon, juniper, lily, clove, ginger, and coriander. This is a fresh, fruity, and light Gin that’s reminiscent of Clavados flavors with its light spices and floral notes.
