St. Laurent Vieux Gin (700 ml) 

Country of origin:  Canada                         Alcohol by Volume (ABV): 47%                            Bottle size: 700 ml  

Every month, a tiny portion of St. Laurent Gin production goes into old barrels of whiskey. Thus, after a rest of more than one year in oak barrels, the gin that took Canada by storm – infused with local seaweed – becomes the St. Laurent Vieux Gin.

The distinctive aromas of St. Laurent Gin are rediscovered in a whole new light: herbaceous and floral notes interspersed with pine aromas reminiscent of Quebec's boreal forest. Rather discreet in the original version, citrus aromas now explode in the mouth. The finish stays true to St. Laurent Gin’s signature: a slight marine saltiness thanks to the maceration of laminaria seaweed harvested in the St. Lawrence River. Time then leaves its mark: grain and woody notes brought by the ex-whisky barrel-ageing enrich the aromatic complexity of the spirit. St. Laurent Gin Vieux is a stunning sipping gin that only occasionally consents to ice cubes as sole companions.

A soft and aromatic approach: the juniper expresses itself without astringency, gently, then gives way to long notes of grass, pepper and candied citrus. A long woody finish, slightly saline, signature of the seaweed infusion.

Botanicals: Juniper berries, coriander seed, angelica root, cassia bara, licorice root, lemon peel, bitter orange peel, cubeb berry, grain of paradise, laminaria seaweed (kombu)

Serving suggestions:

  • Very good neat or (and only if you really must) with an ice cube or two

About Distillerie du St. Laurent: Distillerie du St. Laurent is a spirit producer located in the coastal town of Rimouski, Canada.

Their mission is to elevate the art of craft distilling in Quebec by transmuting the best ingredients from here and abroad into exquisite and distinctive spirits. Like many gin-related stories, the journey started as a hobby in Jean-François' basement where the occasional “totally legal essential oil distillations" took place on weekends.

At the time, there were just a handful of craft distilleries in Eastern Canada, so Distillerie du St. Laurent was founded and obtained its distilling permit in August 2015. St. Laurent Gin, a marine Gin with mineral and salty notes, was released in early 2016 and was an instant blast. The distillery quickly became a favourite in the Canadian market and attracted attention abroad.

In 2017, the team ramped up Gin production to cope with the demand: St. Laurent Gin is now distributed in Canada, USA, France, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Luxembourg, Japan, Philippines and now in Australia! Distillerie du St. Laurent is considered both a pioneer and a leader in the craft spirits movement in Quebec.
