THE GINTHUSIAST

Meet the Maker of Meunier's Gin

Meet the Maker of Meunier's Gin - Distillerie Meunier - spiritueux français
Our February 2019 box featured the award-winning gin that hails from the Auvergne Rhone-Alpes region of France. Meuniers Gin is distilled by their master distiller, who uses a small copper customized pot still. The distiller uses the one-shot distillation methoda method preferred by most artisanal distillers. The distillery produces about 2000 liters per year in small batches yielding around 3000 bottles.

The gin is made by using a neutral base spirit made of beetroot which is distilled along with a balanced mix of 12 botanicals, giving the gin a very unique flavor profile. The botanicals used are the following: organic juniper berries, black elderberries, Goji berries, coriander, nutmeg, cardamom, fennel, orris, angelica, licorice, pomegranate, and orange peels.
