G’Vine Gin / An Unconventional Spirit
HERITAGE & AVANT-GARDE
Combining the heritage of the Charente region, the avant-garde attitude of Paris and the effortless chic of the south-west, GVine Gin de France embodies the creativity and joie de vivre of modern day France. A celebration of the unconventional, it inspires those who live life creatively and a result of one man’s passion to look at the world differently.
Uniquely crafted from grapes, and enlivened with ten botanicals including the rare vine flower, G’Vine Gin represents the revolutionary vision of its Founder and Master Distiller, Jean-Sébastien Robicquet. Bringing together innovation and authenticity, it’s the result of a relentless pursuit of the extraordinary, and a belief in the freedom to redefine the status-quo.
G’Vine Gin is crafted on the grounds of Maison Villevert, a 16th century family estate in the heart of Cognac country. Blending French wine traditions with spirits innovation is the essence of Maison Villevert, and its exquisite liquids, independent character and savoir faire are famed around the world.
A GRAPE STORY
G’Vine Gin’s exceptionally smooth and silky taste is a direct result of the grape spirit, a rare ingredient for gin that creates a heady body and full mouth feel. Thanks to centuries-old expertise in the Charente region, the spirit is the perfect backdrop for the ten pure fruit botanicals that bring delicacy and complexity to the blend.
Carefully selected, 10 botanicals compose G’Vine Gin, including aromatic juniper berries, green cardamom, cubeb berries, liquorice, lime, coriander, quassia amara, nutmeg, ginger root and the rare vine flower.
Split in 4 distinct families, each botanical family is distilled separately to preserves their aromatic properties.
OUR RARE VINE FLOWER
Our signature botanicals is the precious vine flower, which exists for just a few days before maturing into a grape berry and we handpick as soon as it blooms in June. It is then macerated in the grape spirit and distilled in a florentine pot still to capture its enchanting aroma.
THE ART OF DISTILLATION
The resulting vine flower essence is then married with the other nine botanicals in G’Vine’s exclusive copper pot still named Lily Fleur to create the uncompromising and refreshing smoothness of G’Vine Gin. Blended together in perfect proportions for an exquisite marriage, there are two expressions of G’Vine Gin : Floraison and Nouaison.
