Erika comes from Nouvelle-Aquitaine, on the west coast of France. This region is well-known for its beautiful landscapes and famous cities. The idea for Erika first came at a restaurant table in the city of Bordeaux, while the production of their spirits currently takes place in an ancient distillery in Cognac.
In the 18th century, sailors often came down with scurvy. During that time, a Royal Navy doctor came up with a gin-and-quinine solution to cure their illnesses. However, it soon became apparent that producers were deliberately diluting the gin, and the quality was deteriorating. The sailors discovered a technique to test the strength. When poured onto gunpowder, if the alcohol percentage was 57% or greater, the gunpowder would smoulder, and the gin would be certified “Navy Strength.”
Erika Spirit’s Navy Strength is a far nicer concoction than the gin given to the 18th-century sailors - although just as strong. Eight different botanicals and homemade honey are distilled into this elixir. The shorter distillation period means that the flavours and aromas retain maximum strength and purity.
It all started at dinner in 2017. Childhood friends Paul, Vianney and Thibault were chatting about artisanal gins one evening as they drank a digestif together. Paul, a beekeeper, Vianney, a restaurateur, and Thibault, a mixologist bartender, were all pretty passionate about the subject, and within a few hours, had decided to bring all of their unique skills together to create their own. In 2018, they brought their vision to life and created their first spirit, Erika Dry Gin.More on the Brand
