Three generations of the Drouin family have produced quality Calvados in the Pays d’Auge region, seeking to express the full complexity of the thirty apple varieties in their orchards. 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 Normandy 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. Le Gin was the aged over 6 months in former calvados cask to develop further complexity and smoothness.

For centuries, the farmers of the Domfront region have been producing a spirit in which a high proportion of pears was blended with cider apples. Pears seem to have become part of the cider brewing and distilling process in the 14th century. The particularities of Calvados from the Domfront region were recognized in 1942 by the attribution of a regulated appellation, “Calvadosdu Domfrontais”. Domfront is well known for its large number of pear orchards, and the Calvados made in this region has always possessed a unique character much appreciated by connoisseurs
