AWAKEN YOUR TASTE BUDS — Food autonomy isn’t just about what garnishes our plates, but also what fills our glasses. From the Laurentides to Gaspésie and passing through the Eastern Townships, this sparkling gin fizz encapsulates the know-how of local artisans. Imagine a sweet mixture of apples from our orchards, honey elixir from the Hautes-Laurentides, ginger from the Jardin des Funambules in Estrie, and conifers from the Gaspésie forests. At once smooth and effervescent, this gin cocktail will undoubtedly awaken your taste buds and warm up those long winter evenings.
