Anaiak Gin - Award-winning Artisanal Basque Gin
Distillerie Harretche Frères
Anaiak Gin was the featured gin in our August 2021 Box. A small-batch, award-winning gin from the Basque region, produced by brothers Boris and Rémy Harretche at their distillery, Distillerie Harretche Frères.
Anaiak is a London Dry Gin, distilled in the purest conditions in an old, renovated garage at the foot of the lighthouse of Ciboure. And like all dry gins, it starts with a neutral alcohol of agricultural origin made from organic wine marc from the Bordeaux region. Boris and Rémy are keen on using local ingredients from the Basque region, which are abundant and not yet exploited. In addition to juniper berries, hand-harvested lemon verbena from the plains of Ascain and wild eucalyptus from the Jaizkibel mountains are the key botanicals used to make their fresh-tasting, well-balanced gin.
In 2021 at The Gin Guide Awards, Anaiak Gin won the "Best in France" award as well as the "Highly Commended" award. We hope you agree!
