Drav Stout of the  25th anniversary of Casino de Charlevoix

Beer Drav S25 - The Desaltera by Gentologie - To Fight The Crisis
A delicious stout (we are still in St. Patrick’s week) with ruby reflections and a cream-colored foam. Charlevoix coffee adds a touch of acidity that blends too well with the slight vanilla taste. It smells of comforting breakfast and it’s something that we need right now, comfort. An edition in partnership with Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu.


Seedlip Spice 94 - bottle
You don’t have to drink only alcohol during this quarantine. Do you know Seedlip? We recently made an article about it. But Spice 94, one of the 3 varieties, is a complex blend of aromatic distillates from Jamaican berries and cardamom with two peels and a brilliant citrus finish. Simply serve with a tonic and a garnish of red grapefruit. Seedlip Spice 94 is aromatic with warm spicy notes, top notes of citrus zest of lemon and grapefruit and a long bitter finish of the highest quality bark (oak and cascarilla).

Vodka Menaud

Vodka by Menaud - The Desaltera by Gentologie - To Fight The Crisis
Here, a 100% Quebec terroir vodka. Menaud was a partner at the launch of Gentologie Issue 2 and I had the chance to visit the distillery last February, I will tell you about it in the Spring magazine to come soon.
In this vodka, the enhancement of local wealth involves the harvest of wheat and rye exclusively from Isle-aux-Coudres, wheat provides a silky and fine texture accompanied by aromas of grains. Rye, for its part, adds a distinctive spicy and mineral dimension to traditional vodkas. traceable from field to bottle, Menaud’s vodka tastes what Charlevoix represents. Most of the other spirits in Quebec are made with a neutral grain spirit (NGS) that is not harvested in Quebec, here it is 100% made in Quebec.
  • Wheat 75 %
  • Rye 25 %
