G'Vine, gin de France, breaks away from the traditional juniper based "London dry" and offers an exclusive ultra-premium and contemporary gin starring the subtle and rare green grape flower. G'Vine embodies the first gin of a new generation, combining the style and complexity of an ultra-premium 80 proof gin with the versatility of a world class vodka.
France, Region of Cognac, Mid June: Once a year, something enchanting happens in the vineyards. The rare, green grape flowers blossom to life, gently awakened by the sun. In a two weeks time, this magical and ephemeral period will end, and the delicate flowers will turn into grape berries. For the first time in the spirit history, these precious and delicate flowers are being carefully handpicked to preserve their exhilarating and spellbinding fragrance. They are infused in grape neutral spirit during several days to obtain the best floral essence. The result of this unique process is a trip into the very evanescence of the vine flower.
G'Vine is unique because it is made from grape neutral spirit. The wine obtained from the Ugni blanc grapes growing in the Cognac region of France is distilled four times to produce a neutral grape spirit, which is much more suave and heady than the grain spirit commonly used to make gin. This spirit is the frame on which the botanicals and the vine flower will express all their powerful flavours."
G'Vine is small batch distilled from neutral grape spirit with fresh whole-fruit botanicals softened by the infusion of vine flower. Coming from all over the world, nine rare and fresh whole-fruit botanicals chosen for their purity and aromatic and healing properties - ginger roots, liquorice, green cardamom, cassia bark, coriander, juniper berries, cubeb berries, nutmeg and lime - are infused by family during 2 to 5 days and distilled in the grape neutral spirit in small liqueur-maker stills to get the best quintessence. Infusions of vine flower and fresh botanicals are then blended together and copper-pot distilled a last time to get an ultimate and perfect smoothness and personality.
If you don't like traditional gin, you will love G'Vine!
The delicate craft contributes to the unique and sophisticated, yet light and smooth taste that is inherent to G'Vine. From the first taste, G'Vine is delicate and floral, evolving into spicy warmth with an extremely long finish. The subtle aromatic vine flower, together with the grape spirit, softens the traditional juniper taste inherent in most gins. Smooth and well balanced in the mouth, G'Vine is luscious and definitely less harsh than any other gin. Thanks to its versatility, G'Vine offers many new drinking options and is an excellent alternative to vodka.
The G'Vine bottle embodies the values of ultra-premium white spirits today: contemporary, luxurious and refined. The transparency of the bottle reflects the smooth, natural and fresh essence of the spirit, while the green color evokes the vine flower and the brightness of the vineyards during spring, symbols of the product. As a final touch to reinforce its uniqueness, each bottle of G'Vine is individually numbered.
The name G'Vine, pronounced like divine, is a play on the French word for vineyard, "vigne." As you can see, when you look at the logo on the bottle, the name is actually spelled "vigne." The G' has great importance for us, as it stands for the G' in "grape", in "green" and in "gin."
A higher-strength limited edition variant from G'Vine, whose standard bottling is also extremly classy gin. Nouaison is batch-distilled in a copper potstill and flavoured with fresh botaniocals including the grape flower.
