Domaine Coeur de Lion
Three generations of the Drouin family have produced quality Calvados in the Pays d'Auge region, seeking to express the full complexity of the Normandy cider apple varieties. 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 small 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 2850 bottles.
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.
A classic G&T garnished with two thin slices of freshly-cut apple, and possibly a thin slice of ginger.
