World first claimed for new French gin

02 November, 2007

Eaux de Vie has added a premium French gin to its portfolio.

G'Vine is the world's first gin created from grape neutral spirit and the vine flower, according to Jean-Sébastien Robicquet and Bruno de Reilhac, the owner

of Cognac-based Euro Wine Gate.

The grape flower is hand-picked once a year in June and after maceration it is blended with

neutral spirit

made from Ugni Blanc grapes, which has been distilled with nine fresh whole fruit botanicals - ginger root, liquorice, green cardamom, cassia bark, coriander, juniper berries, cubeb berries, nutmeg and lime.

Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
