Le Pestrin spring water is used for the rectification of the vinic alcohol. Its source is located in an ancient medieval village in the heart of the Ardèche volcanoes and was voted one of the best waters in the “Concours International des Eaux Gourmet” (international ‘gourmet water’ competition) run by the AVPA (agency for the valorisation of agricultural products) in Paris.
"Sothis gin is distilled from grapes and plants grown near the vineyards. This family domaine is cultivated using biodynamic practices in which plants play a central role. In their wild state they offer us a better understanding of the soils. When used in vine treatments they help to nourish plant life and support plant growth. I have selected a few of these plants in order to offer a new perspective of our terroirs, the story of a gin originating from the Tain l’Hermitage vineyards and their floral heritage. I have been honing this recipe for many months under the watchful eye of Sothis, the star and also the ancient Goddess who teaches us that cultivating the land is a means of moving closer to the stars."”
