Description

The ORIGINAL 1945 RECIPE for Diplôme Gin was perfected during WW2 and remains unchanged.

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.

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
