Inspired by the freshness of spring, the team gathered at a restaurant at lunchtime to rack their brains and find other sources of inspiration, which would finally allow them to find the perfect recipe for romeo’s gin. 

That’s when everything came together, the second Karolyne Auger Duvernois,  tasted the soup of the day she had just ordered: a cold soup, made with cucumber, lemon, dill, lavender and almond shavings. A revelation!
