The nose of Diplôme Dry Gin is a marvellous bouquet of blossoming cherry trees, cloves and the delicate expression of juniper and coriander seeds. Each sip reveals an even greater complex and perfumed taste layered with zesty grapefruit, delicate nutty oils and a delightful infusion of lavender. Its velvety structure is enlivened with rich exotic spices, dark chocolate and leads the way to a great earthy and lengthy finish. The ORIGINAL 1945 RECIPE was perfected during WW2 and remains unchanged to this day. Diplôme Dry Gin is a unique French "London Dry Gin". Created, and distilled in Dijon, a city known and respected world-wide for its cuisine, the recipe for Diplôme is one of the oldest in France. After the end of the war, Diplôme Dry Gin became the official gin for the American Army stationed throughout Europe. Please enjoy this elegant gin responsibly.
The base spirit of this gin is distilled from sugar beets, not grain, which may explain its pronounced sweetness (note: the recipe dates back to 1945). The aroma is almost neutral, with just a faint breeze of pine. On the palate, the juniper-pine note comes forward, along with a marshmallow sweetness, though it finishes with citrus chased by earthy anise and black pepper.
