Les Goudoulin Armagnacs owe their authenticity to a woman of character. Widowed in 1927, Jeanne Goudoulin managed the family estate on her own for more than 40 years. It is an exceptional cellar with rare vintages, remarkable quality and history that she will pass on to her grandson Christian, who will know how to develop the activity and the reputation of the brand.
In 2009, Michel Miclo, owner of the G. Miclo family distillery, will acquire this nugget with unique know-how. Did he then suspect that one day the complementarity of these two artisanal houses would give birth to this extraordinary gin?
Manufacturing secrets Alsatian distillers for 3 generations, the Miclo family has been able to preserve, transmit and enrich its know-how. She developed this gin with the noblest ingredients to entrust its refining to our cellar master in Gascony. Because if the still and "the art of distillation" forge the character and typicity of the future gin, its final aromatic palette finds its origin in contact with wood. For more than 80 years, the Veuve Goudoulin house has been offering Armagnacs of great finesse. During all these years, large stocks of rare and exceptional old vintages have remained in our barrels. It is in these same barrels that this gin is refined under the watchful eye of our cellar master and oenologist Aurélien, who signs here an exceptional product from Gers.
Origin Maceration of berries selected by the Miclo Distillery (juniper, coriander, iris root, angelica root, cardamom, grain of paradise, calamus, orange zest) in neutral alcohol. Double distillation of this maceration with the berries in traditional 1500 iron stills.
Tasting note “This Gin stands out for its superb blond reflections due to aging in oak barrels. The nose carries us away with its freshness and surprises us with its complexity. Beyond the juniper and orange zest, six spices offer us an exhilarating and vibrant bouquet with lovely lemony, peppery and slightly camphoric notes. On the palate, the discreet smoothness reminds us of staying in a barrel, the spices are fully expressed, especially the citrus zest with a hint of cooking at the end of the palate like a meringue pie.
