What happens when the creators of the improbable St. Laurent Gin infused with seaweed go on a hunt for aromatics and unusual distillation methods? The St. Laurent Gin Citrus represents the culmination of this delirious experiment! Inspired by their discoveries on the coasts of Japan and Vietnam, the artisans of the St. Laurent Distillery present a cold-distilled citrus Gin in an experimental vacuum still. The aromas of the best ingredients in the world, vacuum-distilled with know-how and passion in Rimouski.
This is science, not fiction! In a traditional still, the alcohol evaporates at 78 ° C, which “cooks” and denatures delicate aromatics such as citrus fruits and herbs. The use of a vacuum still completely changes the situation. By removing the air from the still with a pump, the pressure is drastically reduced, allowing the alcohol to evaporate at only 30 ° C, the room temperature where the citrus fruits are harvested. used in St. Laurent Gin Citrus. Result? The essential oils of citrus fruits and herbs are distilled without alteration.
