Where Men Can Become Better Gentlemen

Review

Gabriel Boudier Dry Gin

Distillery

Gabriel Boudier Company, Dijon, Burgundy, France.

Website

Gabriel Boudier Company.

History

This excellent micro-distiller from the Boudier family has been producing fine spirits since 1874, even though taken over by the Battault family in 1936 (Jean Battault is the current president of the company). Their motto is “Excellentia praecepta imponit quae transigi non possunt”, which translates as “Quality is a principle which tolerates no compromises.” The company became the leading Gin specialist in France at the end of WWII, when it was awarded the contract to supply American troops in Europe.

Production

Small batch production techniques are used with inefficient traditional copper pot stills.

Category

Distilled Dry Gin.

Alcohol By Volume (ABV)

40% (80 Proof).

Price Range

$$ - $$$. Not available in the USA and it seems this clear Gin has only very limited availability. Available online from Ireland’s Celtic Whiskey Shop.

Botanicals

Botanicals are likely to be the same as those used in their Saffron and Sloe Gins: angelica seeds, coriander, fennel, iris, juniper, lemon and orange peel.

Name

After the name of the founder Gabriel Boudier.

Tasting Notes

Unfortunately we have not tasted this yet, so are unable to provide any details. It will be interesting to see how the compares with their other Gins which use this as their base: Gabriel Boudier Saffron and Gabriel Boudier Sloe.

Awards & Accolades

Unknown.
