Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : incolore à reflets verts.
  • Nose : fin, précis. Les baies de genièvre, les épices (girofle, curry, cardamome, cannelle), les agrumes (citron, zestes d’orange), les fruits secs (amande, noisette), les fruits rouges (cassis), la fleur d’oranger, la lavande, la menthe fraîche et le foin coupé. Voilà qui donne une idée de l’étendue de la palette aromatique.
  • Palate : tendre, onctueuse. Ses notes douces de lait de coco et d’épices (badiane) précèdent le retour en force des baies de genièvre et des clous de girofle. Avec noblesse, il devient safrané et réglissé avant d’évoluer sur les fruits frais (pastèque), la sarriette et la noix muscade.
  • Overall : longue, fraîche. Le chocolat noir et le citron vert forment un premier duo original. Les baies rouges et les fleurs capiteuses (rose, violette) en forment un second. Les fruits frais (raisin, lychee) et le baume du tigre un troisième. Quant aux baies de genièvre, elles tracent un sillon profond du début à la fin.
The brand

The brand

The Pierre Ferrand estate is located in Angeac, in the golden triangle of Cognac, right in the heart of the limestone terroir of Grande Champagne. Distillation is carried out in small pot stills (25 hl) in order to gain a maximum concentration of aromas. A grand terroir, small stills and an ancient craft are all brought together to produce the finest spirits! It was in 1775 that France’s first gin distillery was born, in the heart of the citadel of Dunkirk, thanks to the granting of royal privilege. Because it was a contraband product destined for England, this gin was originally transported in small casks. In 1989, a century after its disappearance, this artisan gin was given a new lease of life with small cognac stills from the Pierre Ferrand distillery.
