The story of SOIF began a little over a year ago with Fred, Jérôme and Pierre-Olivier, three Bordeaux friends and wine professionals, passionate about good products to drink and eat. Their initial idea started from a classic question: "And if we made our own gin?". THIRST therefore began as a somewhat selfish adventure of three friends who wanted to produce and drink their ideal gin. Working together diligently to find the best recipe and balance, it seemed unfair that their gin never left the shed. After more than a year of trying from their garden shed in the Médoc, the founders succeeded in creating their gin. Its atypical freshness, its great drinkability, its original aromas and its 100% artisanal production method make it unique.
SOIF Le Gin is their first product, but without a doubt the beginning of a great adventure. Their first
production was launched in September 2021: two products make up their range, "Soif Le Gin" an elegant gin with sweet and punchy flavors all in finesse (citrus fruits, peppers in particular), and "Soif Le Gin, AndroGin" a gin dominated by clementine, jasmine and juniper berry with a 100% natural blue color which, on contact with the tonic, turns pink.
The botanicals used to make SOIF Le Gin Juniper berries: Without juniper berries, it's not gin! Fragrant, powerful and peppery, this spice is the basis for making gin.

Lime: Unlike lemon, lime will bring a slight bitterness, in addition to its natural acidity. Timut pepper: It brings freshness and roundness thanks to its fruity side. In addition to its intensity, this spice brings citrus aromas of citrus flavors, which are felt instantly in the mouth. Sichuan Pepper: It helps give our gin its freshness and freshness and its woody, lemony notes. Its berries are generally used in cooking.
