Sothis gin is distilled from grapes and plants grown near the vineyards. This family domaine is cultivated using biodynamic practices in which plants play a central role. In their wild state they offer us a better understanding of the soils. When used in vine treatments they help tonourish plant life and support plant growth. I have selected a few of these plants in order to offer a new perspective of our terroirs, the story of a gin originating from the Tain l’Hermitage vineyards and their floral heritage. I have been honing this recipe for many months under the watchful eye of Sothis , the star and also the ancient Goddess who teaches us that cultivating the land is a means of moving closer to the stars.
Nose: The first nose is finely spiced then evolves and takes on more floral and exotic notes, from chamomile to mango.
Palate: There is a parade of aromatic impressions on the palate that follow each other with softness and tension. From citrus to spices reminiscent of lemon thyme, verbena and the sappy character of the juniper. The bitterness adds depth and then fades away with some herbaceous notes.
