Saffron is the most expensive spice by weight in the world. Native to Southwest Asia, the flower must be carefully harvested by hand and each yields a scant amount of the precious spice. For thousands of years saffron has been used to add a distinctive herbal fragrance, a slightly bitter flavor and an unmistakable yellow/orange hue to food-and now it's an integral ingredient in the altogether sensational Gabriel Boudier Saffron Infused Gin.

Located in Dijon since 1874, Gabriel Boudier is one of France's most esteemed micro-distillers. Their famous handcrafted gin is made according to a colonial recipe rediscovered in Boudier archives. The gin is made in small batches from neutral grain spirits that are infused with 8 botanicals and aromatics- juniper, coriander, lemon, orange peel, angelica seeds, iris, fennel, and saffron. The macerated alcohol is then redistilled in traditional copper pot stills and bottled at 40% alcohol by volume (80 proof).
