Sothis is initially quite delicately spiced on the nose. It evolves into more floral and exotic notes of chamomile and mango. The palate reveals notes of citrus fruits then spices, evoking lemon thyme and verbena. Finally, the bitterness adds depth and fades into herbal notes.
Maxime Chapoutier, creator of Sothis gin grew up in a family of winemakers, established in the Rhône Valley since 1808. The family cultivates its vines with humility and the greatest respect for the balance of the soils and strives to allow the terroir to express itself freely. Maxime Chapoutier left his hometown in the Drôme region in order to travel the worlds wine regions. He experienced new countries and cultures and enjoyed enriching encounters with lovers of food, wine and life and a like-minded passion for sharing.When Maxime returned to the family domaine on the Hermitage hillside, a botanist was enlisted to carry out research on bio-indicator plant species and a floral identity map of each plot was drawn up in order to allow for a better understanding of their profiles. He was indirectly inspired by this experience and research and his plant distillate trials originating from a specific plot led to the creation of this original gin, characterized by fresh aromas that reflect the flora of the terroir.
