St. Laurent Gin
St. Laurent // Quebec, Canada
St. Laurent Gin is made in Canada using a 380 liter still with 9 botanicals in uncommon double gin-basket setup. Botanicals include: juniper berries, coriander seeds, angelica root, cassia bark, licorice root, lemon, bitter orange zest, cubeb berries, and grains of paradise. The 10th botanical - oarweed (laminaria longicruris) is hand harvested locally and added via maceration after distillation.
Modern GinAlso has been referred to as "Contemporary", "New Western", "New Wave", and "New American". This style is not legally defined. In general, this category of gin, while it does contain juniper, places less of an emphasis on this botanical. Other botanicals not classically used in London Dry gins are often utilized and often highlight botanicals grown in the region the gin is produced. Most produced as either London Dry or Distilled Gins.
