Le Point G Gin français

Point G Gin is made from a neutral grain (cereal) alcohol. The eleven ingredients used are coriander, violet, ginger, allspice, spirulina, sweet orange, candied lemon and, of course, juniper berries, the main ingredient in gin (22%). The method used to make this gin is by double distillation in a Charentais type still.

In our August 2020 Box, we had the pleasure of presenting Le Point G Gin, a premium gin from Toulouse, which was first introduced in 2017, long before the gin trend developed in France. 

A bit of history around this gin ... Once upon a time, there was the association between a mixologist and a master distiller from a family that has been making liqueur for five generations located on the Pastel route, a pivotal position at the gates from Toulouse, the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean. Their elixir is made up of eleven ingredients, with spirulina and violet as essential ingredients. True emblem of the Toulouse region, and familiar to Benoît Serres, whose father created the first violet liqueur in the 1950s, this flower offers a gourmet and floral aspect to the gin, while bringing a certain roundness to an alcohol generally. very dry. Spirulina for its part, provides the marine and chlorophyllian side and is known as a food very dense in nutrients, very rich in proteins, iron, vitamins and minerals. A tasty mix between land and sea, giving birth to Point G Gin.

For Alexandre You, it is intended to be a product that initiates new cocktail recipes. As gin is in a phase of rebirth, Toulouse spirit is more aromatic and sweet than traditional gins. This is why the mixologist targets a premium clientele, fond of local products and eager to enjoy new flavors. The two partners have just developed a plant elixir, called Point Green, a natural and original recipe with little sweetness, low in alcohol, made up of ingredients never before used! 

Alexandre You, always very creative, in love with natural and innovative products. He will soon be offering a new kefir tonic. Less sweet, 100% natural, no artificial flavors, no coloring and preservatives. Drink with multiple digestive virtues, strengthens the immune system, transit, etc. ... with continuous carbonation as a living food. As we love Point G Gin, we can't wait to try their new products!
