Helichrysum, also known as Immortelle, is a veritable icon of luxury. This precious botanical has golden flowers which the ancient Greeks used to create oils that would heal their men after battle and is well known for its healing properties.
44°N will not heal you but we really enjoy the richer notes that Helichrysum, locally sourced in Grasse, brings to our gin.
- On the nose :
The flower has a honey-like, sweet aroma, reminiscent of sweet rolls baking in the oven.
- On the palate:
Once distilled a hint of aniseed appears and compliments the taste of rich, dried fruits and rounds off with a herbaceous top note.
- 5cl 44°N Gin
- 2.5cl Squeezed Lemon Juice
- Soda Water
- Large Cubed Ice
- Helichrysum Garnish
Fill a tall tumbler glass with ice cubes. Pour over 44°N Gin and the lemon juice. Pour over soda water and stir with your bar spoon for ten seconds. Garnish the cocktail with Helichrysum flower, a wedge of lemon and a paper straw (optional)
