G'VineGin

G’Vine is produced from Ugni Blanc grapes - recognized for their ancestral distillation characteristics in Cognac - which undergo a 4 times-distillation process to create a grape neutral spirit, much smoother and more suave than the traditional grain spirit associated with the gin production.

THE CRAFTING PROCESS -A TRUE "GIN-NOVATION" 

The base of G’Vine is unique : hand-picked at its peak, the luscious and exceedingly rare vine flower, which blooms a few days in June, is immediately macerated in the grape neutral spirit during 2-5 days and distilled in a small Florentine still.

9 fresh whole-fruit botanicals - ginger root, liquorice, green cardamom, cassia bark, coriander, juniper berries, cubeb berries, nutmeg and lime – are infused by family (juniper berries/spices/aromatics) in the grape neutral spirit for several days before distillation in small stills.

Finally, the vine flower infusion, the 3 botanicals distillates and more grape spirit are blended in perfect proportion and copper-pot distilled a last time for an exquisite marriage.

THE TASTE - SHEER "GIN-IUS" 

From the first sip, G’Vine is delicate and floral with spicy warmth and a lingering, smooth finish.
The subtle, aromatic vine flowers together with the grape spirit soften the traditional juniper taste. G’Vine is well balanced, full-bodied and silkier than any other gin.

G’Vine is superb both on its own and as a vibrant cocktail base. Thanks to its versatility, G’Vine can even substitute vodka in any concoction. Thanks to its smoothness, G’Vine appeals to both gin drinkers and non gin-drinkers, especially women.

G’Vine Nouaison is the perfect partner to the heady, voluptuous flavors of G’Vine Floraison. Presenting nuanced characteristics in the style of a classic London Dry gin, Nouaison reveals increased juniper and nutmeg components, an elevated alcohol content of 43.9%, and a decreased emphasis on the vine flower.

Spicy, floral and suave, G’Vine Nouaison is superb in a dry martini and as a vibrant cocktail base thanks to its versatility.

A UNIQUE SPIRIT 

G’Vine is the first and only gin distilled from grape and starring the vine flower.
G’Vine defines a new category of flavoured spirits and bridges the gap from traditional gins to flavoured vodkas.
G’Vine combines French craftsmanship with innovative distillation, using the highest quality ingredients: rare handpicked vine flower, whole-fruits fresh botanicals and the Ugni Blanc grape which costs 5 to 10 times more than grain.

While most gins are made from starches like wheat, G'Vine innovatively uses the grape as the source of fermentable sugar, ensuring the spirit provides a silky balance and finish on the palate for an unexpectedly subtle gin experience.

G’Vine is a small batch distilled gin and each bottle is individually numbered. The packaging is stylish and contemporary to illustrate luxury and refinement.

Nouaison is a new interpretation of G’Vine. It represents a new life cycle of the vine: in the vineyard, after the ephemeral and bewitching flowering period in June (Floraison in French) comes the stage of fruit formation (Nouaison in French), i.e. the birth of the berry. G’Vine Nouaison embodies this phase, imprinting on the grape canvas a character as concentrated and spicy as the little berry itself.

While most gins are made from starches like wheat, G’Vine innovatively uses the grape as the source of fermentable sugar, ensuring the spirit provides a silky balance and finish on the palate.

Individually numbered (the first 2 digits indicate the year of the vine flower harvest), the bottle reflects the spirit’s distinctive, contemporary and upscale style.
