Gin XII is craft distilled from twelve plants and spices in a plate column still, creating a subtle range of aromas. Gin XII owes its name to the twelve plants and spices that go into its creation. It is characterised by fresh, minty, floral, slightly spicy notes and a beautiful lingering finish. A dry gin with a rich, authentic taste, born of a long period of research and reflection. Gin XII takes full advantage of its Haute-Provence terroir and its subtle blend of herbs such as thyme, rosemary, basil, eucalyptus, sweet almond and mint, which join forces with small juniper berries to express the aromatic intensity of a stroll through the garrigue!
For over 100 years, Distilleries & Domaines de Provence have been making provencal fruit liqueurs and aperitifs in the Haute Provence region. Established in 1898, Distilleries and Domaines de Provence has inherited a tradition that goes back several millennia: collecting medicinal plants on Lure mountain, known for its wealth and abundance of plant species. Today, Distilleries & Domaines de Provence has kept this expertise alive for more than 100 years and shared it with the rest of the world, much to the delight of spirit lovers everywhere. The relatively small size of DDP allows small batch quality; of course, they manage to impart to their products the fragrances of Provence and also its ambience. Famous for their Pastis Henri Bardouin and range of absinthe, they also produce delicious aperitifs and vermouths.
