Distilled and bottled in Cognac, France.
Award Winning Gin Silver Medal at 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
From Monaco in the East, to Marseille in the west, the Côte d’Azur has long captured the imagination. Gin d’Azur captures the timeless essence and personality of this storied region. Carefully sourced botanicals, harmonise flavour profiles known since ancient times. Lavender, thyme and rosemary from the fields of Provence, Sel de Camargue from the mouth of the Rhône and the legendary Menton lemon are distilled separately to capture — and then blended to form a distinctive and flavoursome product. The savoir faire of master distillers in cognac makes our liquid tick; copper—pot batch distilled, and expertly blended. Our convivial personality invites sharing; this is a bottle to open with friends, whether that’s in the shade of a beach bar in St Tropez as the sun sets, or a London members club.
I was lucky enough to be contacted by Roland at Gin D’Azure and he kindly sent me the gin to sample and review. This gin is exactly what it claims to be which is sunshine in a glass. Juniper forward, and herbal but not too much and the lemon cuts straight through it and gives it a clean, fresh mouthfeel. I was so pleased to try this gin, its not one i may have ordinarily gone for because its not a local gin, but i’m so glad i did. I would be really missing out not having this in my collection. The branding is reminiscent of the flavours, its fun, fresh and if you close your eyes whilst drinking it you could be on the beach or a verander in the South of France. I have made a Martini with it and had it as a Gin and Tonic with Fevertree light Mediteranean tonic, and honstly the G&T wins it for me. The gin is too nice on its own to be mixing it in cocktails. If you want to try something that is fresh and tasty, then you cant go wrong with this one. At £34.95 on Master of Malt (26/02/21), then its reasonaby priced for its quality. I dont tend to give that many 5 star reviews but I really do love this, its now on my favourites list.
