THL: What is it?
Nouaison is the post-blossom period of the grape vine when the flowers form a tiny green berry, a precursor to the grape from which this gin is based.
THL: Why should you try it?
G’Vine Nouaison Gin is crafted with a base of neutral grape spirits for a smooth body blends well with their nine botanicals that are sourced and collected from all over the world. The botanicals and neutral grape spirits are married and distilled in “Lily Fleur”, G’Vine’s small copper pot still.
THL: Who makes it?
G’Vine gin is distilled in the Cognac region of France where they also produce G’Vine Floraison, 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.
THL: What does it taste like?
G’Vine Nouaison has solid flavors of juniper berries and zesty citrus laid over a smooth grape spirit, for a gin that is both gentle and firm, masculine and feminine.
THL: How should you drink it?
The intense fruitiness and cinnamon bark notes in this spirit make for a great Bramble.
