- Appearance : colourless.
- Nose : expressive and spring-like, juniper and jasmine give it a lovely freshness. Mellow citrus aromas then evolve on a background of anise and cinnamon.
- Palate : delicate, spicier than the nose (nutmeg, cumin) but with the same characteristic floral richness (angelica, irises, savory, violets).
- Overall : long, juniper and almond milk dominate in a whirlwind of spices, flowers and fruit.
- 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.
