The Gin Avem Hippolais is a London Dry Gin characterized by fine notes of candied lemons, punctuated by subtle floral touches as well as a beautiful peppery length in mouth. It is a gourmet gin, also well served as a pure tasting at room temperature or with a tonic on crushed white grapes, recalling its wine origins.
This spirit was made in collaboration with Christophe Gauville, Master distiller of the Des Moisans distillery based in Sireuil, in the south of Cognac. We have produced our gin using an ancestral method generally used for making Cognacs or Whiskey: the art of blending.
We made 3 eaux-de-vie before seeking the perfect osmosis between them. A first made from juniper berries, a second with all our aromatic plants and our herbs, and a third created only with grape varieties from the Bordeaux region (merlot, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon and sémillon).
