Le Gin de Christian Drouin, Small Batch Gin, 42.0%


This gin is made just a hop, skip and a jump over the channel in Normandy and is enriched with botanicals that we are more familiar with seeing in our homes. The Drouhin’s main business is Calvados and their gin is concentrated around the flavours of Guillaume Drouin’s (Christian’s son’s) mother’s kitchen. Produced mainly for himself, the botanicals include apples, vanilla, cinnamon, rose and almonds, all of which contribute to the more traditional and homely taste that is integral to his identity and upbringing.
It’s exciting to drink this as a G&T, to experiment with possible garnishes. The fresh apple-led flavour also lends itself to a delicious Martini that is perfect for Calvados devotees.

About this SPIRIT

Christian Drouin Calvados

Christian Drouin Calvados

The story of Drouin calvados began around 1960. There was nothing to indicate the Christian Drouin the elder, an industrialist from Rouen, was destined to make a career in spirits. Nothing, that is, apart from his taste for good food and good wines. When he bought a farm in Gonneville he decided to use the cider apple orchards to produce calvados. His aims were simple: produce a top-quality spirit, the best. "My father transmitted to me the calvados virus", says the younger Christian Drouin, who has today given the family business a world-wide reputation. The brand is now sold as far a field as the USA and Japan in more than 40 countries. The third generation is now hard at work. It maintains the traditions that have enabled the estate to become one of the 100 "sites of excellence in taste" selected by the ministry for culture. In 1995 the European foundation awarded the estate its European Prestige Grand Prix for the whole of its production, which represents the quintessence of calvados.
