A Mixology Medley by Moisans: GINETIC Dry Gin, Canoubier Extra Fine Rum and La Pipette Verte Absinthe
The Mixologist Tasting Box by La Distillerie de Moisans brings together three of their most popular products in a unique collection destined for mixologists and craft connoisseurs. This particular set includes three 20 cl (around 6.7 fl. oz) bottles:
- GINETIC Dry Gin
- Canoubier Extra Fine Rum
- La Pipette Verte Absinthe
The Distillerie des Moisans, located in a small hamlet between Cognac and Angouleme, has been run by the Blu Legaret Family for three generations. Distillation, aging and bottling all happen on site, ensuring quality control at every step of the creative process.
The family has harnessed the ancestral expertise they have honed over the years, now applying the tradition and legacy of their predecessors to produce a premium range of craft spirits, which appeal to both mixologists and the modern drinker.
- GINETIC Dry Gin, a recent launch by Moisans, is a small-batch, handcrafted gin that is well and truly "made in France". Revealing notes of fresh citrus and a distinct touch of ginger, it makes a sublime spirit base to a cocktail, with bartenders appreciating both its beautiful design and bold flavors.
GINETIC Dry Gin is double-distilled in Charentais stills, utilizing Moisans' Cognac craftsmanship to produce a level of purity and crisp, clean flavors. The Dry Gin is gently heated in a bain-marie, soaking up subtle notes of berries and herbs. The broad selection of botanicals will surely inspire any mixologist passionate about gin, with notes of juniper, Jamaican pepper, lemon peel, Spanish cilantro, angelica and cinchona bark.
- Canoubier Extra Fine Rum is made using the highest quality sugar cane, sourced direct from the Caribbean, and produced using the purest and most traditional methods, ensuring authenticity with every single sip. Using the skills and savoir-faire of the Distillerie de Moisan cellar master, Canoubier Rum is expertly distilled before being finished in former Cognac barrels, where they age delicately in Limousin oak.
The Canoubier Extra Fine Caribbean Rum is the ideal spirit base for cocktails, and has been conceived with mixology in mind. Its aromatic diversity will work wonders on any creation, expressing fragrant notes of coconut, vibrant fruit and subtle wood flavors. Even when enjoyed neat, this unique creation from Moisans will take your tastebuds to the tropics in an instant, with exotic aromas and equally exciting flavors on the palate.
- La Pipette Verte is an extraordinary multifaceted absinthe with an unusual, intriguing and stimulating selection of flavors. The Distillerie des Moisans has utilized their Cognac craftsmanship to produce a range of spirits, with La Pipette Verte Absinthe being their latest edition. Like Cognac, absinthe has a rich history in France and was a quintessential part of society during the "Belle Epoque".
Absinthe has been growing in popularity in recent years, as traditional, historical spirits are being reintroduced, reimagined and repurposed in the modern mixology world. Bartenders have begun using this iconic eau de vie in more and more in their recipes, thanks to its unique spicy aromas and attention-grabbing green color.
Presentation of the Bottle:
The small 20cl bottles are perfect replicas of their 750 ml versions, with whimsical and contemporary designs that showcase the craftsmanship and modern vision of the Distillerie de Moisans. The selection comes in a unique parchment-colored presentation box with a metal clasp. These handcrafted spirits would make an ideal gift for a cocktail bartender or mixologist.
How to Enjoy:
All three spirits can be enjoyed neat, however as this is a Mixologist tasting box, the selection has been conceived with cocktail creation in mind.
