A Quebec gin wins international honors
Looking for an eau-de-vie that will set your cocktails apart this Christmas? Maybe you should check out Fou Gin. In 2022, the Quebec brand shined as much here as internationally with its elixir which won no less than three gold medals in various competitions.
It was a little earlier this year that entrepreneur and mixologist from Quebec, Sébastien Cliche-Roy, embarked on the Fou Gin adventure. And it has something to raise your glass, because with its notes of fresh cucumber, aromas of citrus fruits, flowers and spices – to name just a few of the 13 local herbs and aromatics used – the only spirit of the brand has already earned him seven medals.
He has notably won gold:
- At the Nations Cup, a Quebec competition that rewards the best local products;
- At the Hong Kong Gin Masters, which rewards the best global gin brands based on potential appreciation in the Asian market;
- And at the Spirit Selection in Brussels, which highlights the best spirits in the world.
Fou Gin also came second on the podium in four competitions: at the International Wine & Spirit Competition, the Global Gin Masters in London, the International Spirit Challenge and the New York International Spirit Competition.
“These are exceptional recognitions that go beyond our expectations. To see that our gin is unanimously appreciated by experts around the world, it’s really a nice pat on the back for all the efforts made in recent years! “, Sébastien Cliche-Roy said in a press release.
In addition to working entirely with local ingredients, the brand uses bottles made of 100% recycled glass, delivery boxes made in Quebec from recyclable materials and labels designed and manufactured here.
Need inspiration for your next reception? The brand offers on its site, among other things, Gin & Holiday Tonic, Christmas Spritz, Maple Gin Smash and Strawberry Martini.
