G'Vine Nouaison Gin - 70cl - 43.9% 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.
G’Vine Nouaison is bottled at 43.9% ABV and attempts to embody the concentration, intensity and spiciness of its namesake phase. It's a warming gin and noticeably spicier than its sister, but it retains the similar silky characteristics set by the grape spirit.
