Winters are harsh; the northeast wind rips across the estuarine river and rocky headlands, while the smell of smoked fish pervades the air as the boats return to dock.
Distillerie du St. Laurent makes products that are a reflection of the region, its climate and traditions – mixed in with a good deal of innovation and eccentricity!
Distilled in small batches, St. Laurent Gin is an all-natural, hand-crafted gin.
After a steam infusion of exotic spices in a custom-designed gin-basket, laminaria seaweed is macerated in the resulting distillate to extract umami flavours, which form the base notes of this gin.
On the nose, it is like a sea breeze, interspersed with intense herbal and citrus notes, peppery spices and cinnamon.
Pair with a mediterranean-style tonic and any kind of seafood. Try it sprinkled on oysters with a squeeze of lemon!
