The hand-crafted Saffron Gin was released on the market in 2006 and is a product based in Dijon at the highly respected French Gabriel Boudier distillery. The Gabriel Boudier distillery has a reputation of note dating all the way back to 1874. There, the Saffron Gin is distilled according to the French Indian colonial Maison Boudier recipe rediscovered in their archives from the 19th century.
This unique recipe includes special hand-picked saffron which gives the Gin a delicatly spicy character together with its other natural Botanicals. Saffron also happens to be the most expensive spice in the world. The saffron is responsible for the unique tawny amber orange appearance of Saffron Gin. Other traditional botanicals like juniper berries, coriander seed, iris root, angelica root, fennel seed, lemon peel, and orange peel are used in the production of this extraordinary Saffron Gin. The all-natural Saffron Gin is produced in the small batch traditional pot still method, in which the Gin is distilled several times in a copper pot piston. Since the Gabriel Boudier distillery lays great emphasis on the quality of their Gins, most production steps of the celebrated Saffron Gin is done by hand. The saffron is only added at the end of the distillation process. Furthermore, the Saffron Gin is produced only in limited batches annually. Thus, the distillery has created a high-quality and exclusive Gin, and due to the limited availability the Saffron Gin is in high demand.
The complex and memorable Saffron Gin is a visual pleasure, presented in a round, transparent glass bottle, which is decorated with an understated cream coloured label. The bottle has been kept simple by the Gabriel Boudier distillery purposely in order to direct the focus on the striking colour of fabulous Saffron Gin. The bottle is decorated with a saffron flower. The Saffron Gin is a real eye-catcher, which makes a perfect gift or a very attractive addition in the local bar due to the unusual amber colour.
The Saffron Gin is particularly suitable for pure pleasure or simply on ice, as only then the special saffron aroma comes into its own. For this reason it is advisable not to use the Saffron Gin for mixing long drinks and cocktails, as mixing would distort its unique taste.
