A beekeeper, a professional chef, and a mixologist walk into a bar. This is the story of Paul, Vianney, and Thirion - three childhood friends who grew up together in the south west of France. One evening in late 2017 they were all sitting around a restaurant table together in Bordeaux, chatting about different types of spirits, notably gins. Then, the idea hit them - why not try to make their own? By 2018, they put their words into action, and created their first spirit, Erika Dry Gin.
