THL: What is it?
G’Vine Floraison Gin is the world’s first gin that starts with neutral grape spirits enriched with the flowers from the same vine the grapes once grew.
THL: Why should you try it?
Most gins use a neutral grain spirit as their base for infusing the botanicals of gin. There are some gins that use a percentage of grape neutral spirits as a base, but G’Vine uses 100% neutral grape spirits for the smoothest canvas to imprint their botanical blend. Another unique innovation is the addition of handpicked green grape flowers, which only appear a few days each year, that are then separately distilled in a small Florentine pot. The essence is then blended with the 9 botanicals including juniper berries, ginger root, licorice, cassia bark, green cardamom, coriander, cubeb berries, nutmeg, and lime.
THL: Who makes it?
G’Vine gin is distilled in the Cognac region of France where they also produce G’Vine Nouaison, infused with the green berry of the grape vine before it fully matures for another time capsule of the life of a grape vine.
THL: What does it taste like?
G’Vine Gin is fresh, fragrant and floral. This delicate gin sits firmly in the floral category, accompanied by other floral gins such as Hendrick’s and Nolet’s, quickly making this style a sub-category in the modern gin style.
G’Vine gin is distilled in the Cognac region of France, where they also produce G’Vine Nouaison, infused with the green berry of the grape vine before it fully matures. The distillery says their goal is to defy expectations of what a gin is supposed to be.
