Once a year, in mid-June, in the storied region of Cognac, France, the rare green grape flower blossoms to life. The flower exists for only a short time before maturing into grape berries and, in this succulent state, is the exquisite infusion for G’Vine Gin. The base for the G’Vine infusion process is unique to the Gin family. France’s Cognac region is home to the centuries-old Ugni Blanc grape. In September of each year, the Ugni Blanc are harvested and immediately pressed and converted to wine. The resulting spirit is distilled four times producing neutral grape spirit. Unlike the traditional grain spirit associated with Gin production, the Ugni Blanc grape spirit is much smoother and more suave with a heady body and aroma new to the palate. It is also the perfect canvas for the green grape flower to express its complex delicacy.
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. Smooth and well balanced in the mouth, G’Vine is full-bodied and less harsh than any other gin. Because of its versatility, G’Vine offers many innovative cocktail options and is an excellent alternative to vodka.
