Avem Hippolais is a London Dry Gin, which is distilled in small batches in collaboration with Christophe Gauville, master cognac distiller at the Distillerie des Moisans. The first batch of Gin Avem (1188 bottles) was distilled in November 2019 and bottled in two batches in November and January.
Gin Avem is made using the double distillation process, using Charentais stills. The neutral alcohol base used is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Semillon grapes harvested in the Bordeaux region. Because it is not a grain alcohol gin, it is 100% gluten-free.
