Produced in a traditional pot still by microdistiller Gabriel Boudier in Dijon, Saffron Gin is made to a 19th-century Indian colonial recipe that contains nine fresh botanicals including juniper, coriander, lemon, orange peel, angelica seeds, iris, fennel and saffron, which gives a delicate spicy character.

Serve with tonic and a slice of orange . Or for the perfect

negroni: 1 measure Saffron Gin, 1 measure Campari, 1 measure


vermouth poured into a glass half filled with ice cubes. Stir and garnish with a slice of orange. For other cocktail suggestions visit
