A Gin for the summer!
Rétha Spiritueux is a unique micro-distillery located on the Île de Ré, off the coast of the Cognac region. It was created in 2014 by sailing enthusiast and craft distiller Jérôme Rigaud and Morgan Guilloto, who takes care of the marketing side of the business. It pays homage to its terroir, its oceanic environment, and the artisanal knowledge of Charentais distillation.
The name “Rétha” derives from the word for “inhabitant” in the patois of the island. The island itself is nicknamed “Ré la blanche,” or White Ré, in reference to the white color of its houses painted with lime and the clarity of the sunlight.
Rétha Gin offers invigorating oceanic flavors and aromas that are carefully balanced by notes of juniper, citrus, pepper and a hint of ginger. It is particularly pleasant when served chilled, directly out of the freezer; it brings a refreshing, saline touch to the classic Gin and Tonic.
