romeo's gin : the freshness of spring in a bottle.
the flavour profile was born out of an unexpected inspiration.

Inspired by the freshness of spring, the creative spirits behind romeo’s gin worked hard all year long in 2014 to release a gin with an aromatic profile that would perfectly represent that frenetic sensation that the first warm days of spring bring to Montrealers, an indescribable feeling. 

At a point of deadlock, where everything had been tried and nothing seemed to work, 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, wife of Nicolas Duvernois and shareholder of the company, tasted the soup of the day she had just ordered: a cold soup, made with cucumber, lemon, dill, lavender and almond shavings. A revelation!

romeo’s gin was born.

A gin as fresh as the first days of spring, with aromas of juniper, dill, cucumber, lemon, lavender and almond. A spirit curated for non-conformists, those who live life without boundaries and create something for the rest of us to think about. Those who draw their inspiration from everything, from everywhere… from a soup!
