Moisans GINETIC Dry Gin: Combining Creativity with Craftsmanship
Moisans GINETIC Dry Gin 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. As the gin industry has seen a significant boost in interest in recent years, GINETIC Dry Gin is set to become a staple in those bars who aren't afraid to experiment with contemporary creations from craft producers.
The Distillerie des Moisans, located in a small hamlet between Cognac and Angouleme, has been run back the Blu Legaret Family for three generations. Distillation 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 developed over the years, now applying the tradition and legacy of their predecessors to produce "French style" gin.
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.
