Where does Baltazar gin come from?
It all started in 1984 in Hérisson, a small village in the heart of France, where Mr. Perrier, also called Mr. Balthazar, made the first distillation. David Faverot took over in 2013 by perpetuating the style and improving the recipes. Distilled into ironing stills, corn, barley and rye are harvested locally and form the basis of his brew for his famous Hedgehog whisky.
