Dry Gin – Original 1945 Recipe
The nose of Diplôme Dry Gin is a bouquet of blossoming cherry trees, cloves and the delicate expression of juniper and coriander seeds. Each sip reveals an even greater complexity and perfumed taste layered with zesty grapefruit, delicate nutty oils and lavender. Its velvety structure is enlivened with rich exotic spices, and dark chocolate leading the way to a great earthy and lengthy finish. 44% ABV.
About the Producer
Originally created for the Americans stationed in France during WWII. The recipe from 1945 remains unchanged to this day. Diplôme Dry Gin is a unique French “London-style Dry Gin.” Created and distilled in Dijon, a city known and respected worldwide for its fine cuisine, craft spirits, the recipe for Diplôme is one of the oldest in France. Using natural botanicals sourced from Europe and Morocco, this gin is made from the finest juniper berries, coriander, whole lemons, orange peel, angelica, saffron, iris root and fennel seed. These natural botanicals macerate in pure beetroot alcohol and are slowly distilled using a small pot still. This method gives Diplôme Dry Gin its fully round, rich taste, while keeping great freshness.
