Additional information: Decroix Gin
An extraordinary Sichuan pepper tree (Zanthoxylum piperitum), planted on the Decroix farm more than twenty years ago, provides the impetus for this product. Its peppercorns, which have a strong and spontaneous aroma, provide the base notes for our gin. To this are added coriander, cardamom, ginger, angelica and, of course, the indigenous juniper berries from our own Montmoreau hillsides.
After being steeped for 48 hours in organic wheat alcohol, the resulting cocktail is distilled in a Stupfler still, creating a fine treat to both the palate and to the senses. It is sufficiently aromatic not to lose its character when mixed with tonic for G&T or for cocktails.
« A living vibrant gin. A plunge into the plants. A unique botanical nectar bursting with intensity and identity »
Following the successful launch of organic DECROIX COGNAC and DECROIX GIN, French organic wine enthusiast, David Mimoun has created his own brand name – VIVANT.
VIVANT offers a range of outstanding spirits, all made from carefully selected and organic ingredients. From start to finish, all additives are strictly banned from our products so that our liquors truly reflect and respect the particular properties of the soils from which they originate. (Pesticide residue analyses are available for customers to consult on our website).
All of our ingredients are either sourced from organic farmers or specifically grown for VIVANT.
VIVANT considers its approach to be a driving force in the development of organic farming both in France and further afield.
