Enjoying a real mixologist’s cocktail at home is now possible thanks to the complimentary expertise of La Maison du Whisky and the Experimental Group’s Travellers’ Cocktails. The first three creations born from this partnership, “Paris”, “Venezia” and “New York”, are an invitation to travel.
Made with Christian Drouin calvados, del Professore Bianco Vermouth, honey from Tarn-et-Garonne and Scrappy’s Orange Bitters, the Orchard Keeper is probably not the best known of the Travellers’ Cocktails range. However, the one that gives pride of place to the spirit of Normandy deserves to be discovered or rediscovered. Very expressive and elegant, it stands out as an ode to Calvados. An irresistible nose, a mouth dominated by apples, a long finish: Orchard Keeper has everything it takes to seduce connoisseurs.
Profile: Fruity and rich.
Nose: Bitter orange, vinous with notes of cider.
Palate: Smooth, sour apples coated with honey.
Finish: Floral and herbaceous with apple lingering on the finish.
