The latest creation of the La Grange “Rose des Vents” Distillery is a journey between the history of Gin and that of Saffron.
When the English colonized India in 1750, they obviously took Gin in their trunks.
India being a land of spices, the colonial bourgeoisie offered themselves the luxury of flavoring Gin with saffron, whose pistils with unique medicinal and aromatic properties give it all its nobility.
The existence of a saffron farm ten minutes from the distillery then sounds like an obvious collaboration.
A first distillation composed of Alsatian juniper, coriander, lemon, pepper, cardamom,… will be the basis for an extraction by cold infusion of saffron and will give it this golden color.
Alcohol: 42% Vol.
