INSPIRED BY NATURE
Sometimes we must stop for a few moments and look at the nature that surrounds us. Nature evolves, it changes with the seasons. Without being the loudest, she always manages to make herself heard through her great wisdom. It contains secrets, forgotten flavors who are just waiting to be brought to life. In a world that invites us to favor quantity over quality, here we listen to our true nature. Welcome to the Appalaches Distillerie!
To be the summer destination of choice, you need quality and diversity! Les Appalaches is therefore adding Kepler Stellaire to its range of fruity gins. Little brother of Kepler Bord de mer, the latter gives way to aromas of black raspberry and blood orange. Well balanced thanks to the rosemary and fresh lemon, why not treat yourself to summer in the bottle!
Alphonse puts on his best clothes to present his latest creation Fleur d’oranger. Uniting the sweet freshness of orange blossom with the minty scent of wintergreen, let Alphonse guide you through the cocktail journey without compromise.
The black forest amaretto is an elegant marriage of Nordic herbs, black cherries, and cocoa. Inspired by the famous black forest cake recipe, this liqueur presents vibrant flavors of candied fruit on a long and slightly bitter finish that makes you want to go back with every sip. Serve over ice or with a quality artisanal lemonade.
BORD DE MER ( SEASIDE)
It was in full lockdown that the Kepler Bord de mer (Seaside) was born. Our distiller, in flagrant lack of sunshine, was struck by a sudden burst of creativity. In the company of his small pocket still, he distilled and redistilled fresh and sunny herbs. From the depths of the sea has emerged a gin that does great honor to our national strawberry and local rhubarb. We add local grown cucumbers from the company Toundra du Saguenay as well as wild Wakamé seaweed harvested by hand by our friend Antoine Nicolas, the emeritus diver from Gaspé. Bord de Mer will leave you with a salty, well-balanced umami finish that makes it easy to work with in a cocktail
KEPLER DRY GIN
A NATURE COMPLEXE
Kepler dry gin is now a benchmark for Quebec gin due to the great complexity of its aromas. Is it fruity? Boreal? Or Spicy? Come to think of it, this is probably a gin with a floral profile. The nature that surrounds us is rarely made of black and white. It is colorful and the same goes for our gold medalist at the prestigious Gin Masters competition in London in 2019 and 2020. This triple distilled gin will amaze you with every sip. A start of elderflower and coriander gives way to a hint of cranberry and sea buckthorn to then leave an impression of Labrador tea and wild blueberries in the mouth. Made with Canadian first grade wheat alcohol and aromas. It is the type of gin that can be sipped on the rocks or mixed in a cocktail (gin & tonic, negroni, martini, french75, etc.).
KEPLER GIN RESERVE
A unique gin in its category with delicate aromas of maple wood and spices. A grain to bottle aged in barrels that have contained maple syrup. The three months aging development process that is required gives it a delicate note of maple wood and spices supported by the powerful but well-balanced aromas of Labrador tea. A true Canadian taste. Gold medalist at the Gin masters 2020 in London, it also received the bronze medal at the 2020 San Francisco spirit awards. Kepler Reserve is elegant on ice and prestigious in cocktails (particularly in a martini).

INNOVATING BY NATURE
What says Appalaches says, maple syrup, sweet liquid that has been part of our culture for so many years. Often associated with desserts, maple syrup has been the main invitee on a tradition Quebec table for decades now. The typical maple liquor is a cream based. What if we thought of maple differently? What if what made this liquid noble and delicious was not its sweet taste but rather the unique aromas that hide behind it? Inspired by Darwin’s theory of evolution, we distilled maple, again and again, until we produced Minus 40, a current and delicious maple spirit, which we believe will become what the bourbon is for the Americans, and scotch for the Scottish. Once again, Appalache is leading the way in this class of spirits by winning the only medal, gold it goes without saying, from the London 2020 Specialty Spirit Competition in the ‘maple alcohol’ category.
