What is St. Laurent Gin?

Review: St. Laurent Gin — In Search of Elegance

St. Lauren Gin is an all-natural and handcrafted gin that is distilled in small batches. It is done so in a custom-designed gin basket through a steam infusion of exotic spices with the maceration of laminaria seaweed. This resulted in forming base notes for the gin and extracting umami flavors. The product is 43% ABV.


St. Laurent Gin flavor profile

With the presence of heavy sea breeze flavors, the gin also exudes intense herbal and citrus notes, together with peppery and cinnamon spices. Complementing those flavors, botanical scents relating to juniper berries, coriander seed, angelica root, cassia bark, licorice root, lemon peel, bitter orange peel, cubeb berry, grain of paradise, laminaria seaweed (kombu) are also present, embodying the natural sentiment that St Laurent is trying to portray.

Food pairing suitable for both:

  • Lamb: Gin contains juniper, a botanical often used in lamb dishes to enhance the red meat’s flavor. The combination allows the taste of both elements to be elevated. 
  • Paté: Patés are often seasoned with juniper berries, so this makes the French meat paste the ideal snack to eat with gin because it enhances the flavor profile of both entities.
  • Chocolate: The latter provides a distinct contrast which helps keep the flavor profiles of both the gin and the chocolate intact allowing each to compliment the other perfectly.
