St. Laurent Gin


A MYSTERIOUS SEAWEED GIN

PROUDLY DISTILLED IN RIMOUSKI

st. Laurent GIN

Premium Dry Gin - Inspired by the Sea

St. Laurent Gin is a craft spirit distilled in small batches in Rimouski, Québec, using only natural ingredients and no artificial colours. Made in our 380-litre still, St. Laurent Gin is vapour-infused with exotic botanicals using an uncommon double gin-basket setup, then slowly macerated with a locally hand-harvested seaweed, Laminaria Longicruris.

The complex aromas of St. Laurent Gin derive from an improbable mix of botanicals from around the world and seaweed from the St. Lawrence River. The first sip evokes the northern pine forests (juniper berries 1) with spicy floral notes (coriander seeds 2), followed by the woodsy scent of angelica root 3 with a whiff of warm bakery aromas from cassia bark 4 and liquorice root 5. Lemon 6 and bitter orange zest 7 add a citrus nose with musky hints of pepper (cubeb berries 8 and grains of paradise 9). Laminaria longicruris 10 gives St. Laurent Gin its characteristic green tint and a soft, refreshing and slightly marine finish.

Our Story


Our Story


Unfortunately, we are not at liberty to divulge the true origins of our journey, as we need to keep our records clean, so our lawyer has suggested these few lines...

Starting a craft distillery in Quebec is an unlikely and perilous undertaking, but we are a stubborn lot – so we did it anyway! Our hard work, dedication and passion outweigh any lack of means. We are proud to be a small company producing authentic craft spirits, one batch at a time. We are driven to introduce the world to the exceptional terroir of our region through the distinctive flavours of our original spirits. With an independent streak as broad as the St. Lawrence, we are confident that our products will stand out from the crowd of mass-produced and generic spirits. Cheers!

THE ARTISANS

JEAN-FRANÇOIS CLOUTIER

PRODUCTION CAPTAIN

A postmodern apothecary, neo-druid, ethylic alchemist and aromatics’ shaman, the Production Captain rules over the working force and the machinery. He is openly dependent on Angelica root. 

JOËL PELLETIER

BRAND ADMIRAL

In charge of branding, marketing and the espresso machine, the Admiral acts as both the Distillerie’s ambassador and mascot. Long ago, he inherited the business world’s secret art of handshaking from a Belarusian master.

GUILLAUME TIMMONS

POT STILL HELMSMAN

His irish roots make him an unmatched still operator. He proudly wears a kilt, for "the look and comfort". No one knows if he wears underpants or not.

SAMUEL DUFOUR

STEAM BOILER CHIEF OFFICER

Sports enthusiast, he engages in synchronized distillation with the Pot Still Helmsman. Recognized by his peers as being the only one to do wheelies with the forklift and to reach Half Billion Jackpots on the pinball machine.

JOEL LELIÈVRE

LIEUTENANT of BUREAUCRACY

Discovered in an arcane air one-man band contest, our multitasking serving bureaucrat does everything we tell him to and even creates needs. Since we already have one Joël, we renamed this one Gertrude.

DR. DARWIN, Ph.D.

SCIENCE OFFICER

The Distillerie’s Mastermind, Darwin is in charge of the spirits’ coordination polymerization by mass spectrometry, a draining undertaking that forces him to work lying down all day long.

EMILIE YOUNG VIGNEAULT

BOTTLING QUARTERMASTER

Part time lifesaver, our heroine infuses a bit of punk juice into the hot toddy of the anachronistic pirates that we are. Excellent handling of the cork stopper wax. Stamps bottles with the dexterity of a caterpillar.
