20th Anniversary Cocktail by Gin 44°N Terre Blanche 

Cocktail of the Week: 44°N Gin uses similar methods to extract aromas from botanicals as you’d see in the creation of perfume.

By Samantha Coles

Terre Blanche Hotel Spa Golf Resort, found in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, France, is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a limited-edition gin. 

Nestled between Provence and the French Riviera, the resort resides within some 750 acres of gloriously unspoiled nature. It is pure Provencal chic — from the decor of the suites and villas to the cuisine served at the Michelin-starred restaurant, Le Faventia.

To commemorate the anniversary, the resort has partnered with 44°N Gin, whose distillery is in the nearby town of Grasse. Known as the perfume capital of the world, the brand is named for its geographical coordinates (and not for the gin’s alcohol content, as you might assume). 

44°N Gin uses similar methods to extract aromas from botanicals as you’d see in the creation of perfume, and the distillery has sourced 70% of the ingredients for the limited-edition gin from local producers, supporting family farming and the cultivation of aromatic plants.

The gin uses botanicals of clementine grain, bay leaf, lavender, mandarin, bergamot and pine, creating a clean taste that is evocative of the Provencal landscape. The cocktail, made to celebrate the anniversary, features bitter lavender for a taste of the French Riviera. 

The homage to perfumery is encapsulated in the stylish bottle, which would look equally at home in your perfume collection as in your liquor cabinet. The design of the bottle and its gift box are inspired by the traditional perfume houses of Grasee.
