Saffron Gin comes from a recipe rediscovered in the Boudier archives. Saffron Gin is the result of an alliance between Great Britain for its London Dry Gin, India for its spice used extensively in cooking and in religious ceremonies, and French know-how developed by Gabriel Boudier. This original product with exotic notes is manufactured entirely at Dijon and is used in numerous cocktails, the most famous being Saffron gin and tonic.

 

You may have thought Dijon was satisfied with making amazing mustard, astonishing wine and quintessential Crème de Cassis, after all, that is a substantial contribution to the world of delicious liquids/pastes. You would however, be wrong; those Dijonites…? Dijonists…? People of Dijon are far from done. Take this Gin for example, the House of Gabriel Boudier use saffron to make a bright orange gin that delivers a flavour profile of subtle spice, floral notes, backed by powerful juniper and citrus tones. No wonder Louis XI confiscated the title of Duke of Burgundy; he wanted all of Dijon’s delicious gin!


The story of the House of Gabriel Boudier is primarily one of passion, commitment and of certain key events that have established their good name and reputation. It is also a story of a place, Dijon, which gave its name to the ""Crème de Cassis de Dijon"" a protected geographical indication now recognised all over the world. The House of Gabriel Boudier is based on the principles and values of its founders. People who knew how to develop an idea without betraying its spirit.


In 1909, Gabriel Boudier took over the house of Fontbonne, founded in 1874 and renamed it with his own name. He established the business at Boulevard de Strasbourg in Dijon where it continued to develop until his death in 1918. In 1936, his widow sold the house to Marcel Battault, who decided not to change the trading name because of its high-quality reputation; and he, in turn, handed the business to his nephew Pierre Battault. Thus, two families in succession have built the reputation for quality at the House of Gabriel Boudier while insisting on the motto ""Quality without compromise"". In 1969, the company moved to Rue de Cluj in Dijon to allow for expansion and development and it remains family owned.
