G'Vine Floraison Gin - 70cl - 40% ABV
G’Vine is batch distilled using a neutral grape spirit and fresh whole-fruit botanicals in France’s Cognac region. While the region may be known as the birth place of centuries-old distillation practices using the Ugni Blanc grape variety, G’Vine is the first to use it as a base spirit for gin. This specific type of grape is recognised for its adaptability to the distillation process: high in acidity and neutral in flavour. More commonly associated with brandy, it is this unconventional grape-based spirit that gives the G’Vine duo their distinct character.
Bottled at 40% ABV, G’Vine Floraison has vibrant floral, fruity notes bursting through. The floral flavours of the vine flower are dominant on the palate and the grape holds strong, but a zesty mix of juniper and cardamom retain the gin status, while ginger brings depth. This is a sweet, clean and fresh gin that is an almost revolutionary take on the genre.
