The story behind OXXiTAN Les remparts French gin (44):
It was in the small village of Albas, with 78 inhabitants, nestled between vineyards and garrigues, that the idea of this gin was born. François, a native of the Belgian Ardennes settled in the Corbières more than 15 years ago after discovering this 'terroir' while grape-picking.
Together with local shepherdess Camille, François goes in search of the best herbs, for their taste and smell.
The result far exceeded expectations: alchemy worked between the 11 Mediterranean herbs and organic wheat alcohol. The result is a sublime organic French gin.
Angelica, immortelle, thyme, chamomile, lemongrass, rosemary, cinnamon, coriander, heather, lemon verbena and, of course, juniper berries.
Add 4 cl OXXiTAN Les remparts gin to a glass with ice cubes and mix with 8 cl neutral tonic.
Decorate with a slice of lemon or orange and, as a finishing touch, add a sprig of rosemary or a few balls of pink pepper.
