Normindia Gin is a new creation from Domaine Coquerel, an estate that has been producing Calvados in Normandy since 1937.
The idea for Normandia was born in 2015 when Pierre, the third generation of the Domaine du Coquerel family, returned from a trip to India and the USA. During his travels he had experienced a huge range of new flavours and had discovered gin! Back home he found an old family book, dated from 1765, that included a recipe for a juniper distillate and so the process was begun.
The first batch of Normindia was distilled in March 2017 after 2 years of experimentation with a team of flavour experts, oenologists and distillers.
Fresh, fruity and light, Normandia aims to combine the zesty quality of a young Calvados with the floral, spicier nature of a more mature VSOP. Fifteen botanicals are used including juniper, (obviously) apple, (it is from Normandy after all) orange, cinnamon, cloves, lily, ginger and coriander. These are macerated for between 4-12 days before being distilled in one of the domaine’s copper Calvados column stills. This gives Normindia its structure and roundness.
