Discover le Domaine Lafrance

Domaine Lafrance is the story of 3 generations of passionate apple growers who have succeeded one another. Having become an imposing agrotourism site, Domaine Lafrance counts today; 13,000 apple trees including 2 hectares under organic cultivation. Located in Saint-Joseph-du-Lac, in the Basses-Laurentides region, Le Domaine offers a wide range of activities that put the apple in the spotlight.

‘Sloe Gin’ is a typical English liqueur made from sloes macerated in gin. Dandy Sloe Gin comes from the maceration of Mont-Royal plums grown in the orchards of Domaine Lafrance.

Dandy Gin comes from the distillation of apple, grape and pear brandy on selected aromatics to enhance the fruit and apple blossoms of Domaine Lafrance.

OLD TOM GIN QUÉBÉCOIS – Fruit brandy: Apples – Grapes – Pears – Aged in cabernet sauvignon barrels – Aromatic profiles: Soft, woody, sweet – Sweet with maple syrup A JOURNEY THROUGH TIME Le Dandy Old Tom is directly inspired by 18th century London.
