GinBey Gin Domaine des Tourelles

Domaine des Tourelles is no stranger to producing spirits: Arak has long been a significant part of their history, they decided to produce a Spirit both modern and Mediterranean that demonstrates the domain’s dynastism. This premium Gin made from 14 botanicals, using the traditional base of juniper and coriander seeds with other ingredients such as citrus peel, mandarin, cassia bark, angelica to name a few (all sourced from Lebanon): part of the botanicals are steeped 24 hours before distillation in 400-liter copper stills which is heated by a steam jacker to keep the temperature steady. The more volatile botanicals of rose petal, pomegranate and Tilia petals are placed in a basket for a gentler extraction. After blending, the final spirit is rested in traditional clay jars giving it remarkable finesse and roundness. The delicacy of this Gin is completely unique and both honours and reflect their Lebanese roots.

Behind the bottle: Domaine des Tourelles

Domaine des Tourelles was founded in 1868 by French adventurer François-Eugène Brun and is one of the most highly acclaimed and oldest wineries still operating in Lebanon. It was also the first commercial cellar in ‘modern’ Lebanon to produce wines, arak and other spirits. This place has history! The Brun family owned and ran the winery up until the last descendant died in 2003 but luckily two local families – the Issa and Issa el-Khoury families – joined forces to buy the property and continue the fine tradition of winemaking.

Today, this Bekaa Valley estate is run by the three Issa children – twins Faouzi and Johanne and their sister Christiane, alongside Emile Issa-el Khoury, son of one of the co-owners. This young and dynamic combination have introduced a handful of practices in the vineyards and cellar including the use of indigenous natural yeasts, no fining or filtering, and only very small amounts of sulphur. These techniques along with fruit from 40 hectares of ancient, organically cultivated and dry-farmed vineyards (among the oldest in the valley) and a winery perfect for hands-off winemaking, make Domaine des Tourelles one of the finest boutique wineries in the Middle East.
