Christian Drouin

Christian Drouin Le Gin Carmina

After the launch of Le Gin de Christian Douin in 2015, the only gin made from more than 30 varieties of cider apples and 7 herbs selected for their perfect combination of apple and juniper aromas, Guillaume Drouin has created a new blend dedicated to red fruits. Carmina is made with the same principles as the original version of Le Gin; each botanical or fruit is macerated and redistilled separately in order to optimise the extraction of aromas. The distillates are then blended before bottling. This time the bouquet is summery. It combines flowers and fruit with the use of raspberry, blackcurrant, elderflower, vanilla, lemon and orange in addition to juniper and cider apple varieties from Normandy.

Christian Drouin Sélection Calvados

Christian Drouin Selection Calvados

While the Pays dAuge Calvados requires prolonged aging in oak barrels to flourish, a Calvados produced from apples and pears, and distilled in a column still, offers an aromatic universe dominated by fruit, palatable. from an early age. For this reason, Christian Drouin preferred to offer for entry-level a Calvados partly produced in the establishment he operates in Domfront. This calvados derives its originality from the high percentage of perry pears used in conjunction with cider apples. The soil (schist and granite) and the distillation process (a single distillation) also contribute to its typicality. It is ideal for the preparation of cooking recipes, apple granita and cocktails requiring a fruity base alcohol. La Sélection is an Appellation dOrigine Contrôlée calvados.
