G?Vine Gin is a true one of a kind product, standing alone in the gargantuan collection of contemporary premium gins. One fact that differentiates G?Vine from the rest is that it comes from France. But that?s only a gentle introduction to the peculiarities of this gin. The real USP is that where most gins are produced using base spirits distilled from various grains, G?Vine is based on grapes. The use of grapes instead of grains isn?t as absurd as it might first seem; the very first juniper spirits, the predecessors of our beloved modern gin, that were knocking around in France, Belgium, and the Netherlands in the fourteenth century, were also made principally from grapes. With the Cognac region, the makers of G?Vine have sought out and found a locality famed for its distillatory distinction.
The producers of G?Vine Gin, which is available to purchase in the online shop here at Urban Drinks, do still use certain traditional methods in their work, and the Ugni-Blanc variety of grapes that they make use of are perfect for distillation, famed as they are for their high degree of acidity and neutral taste. The vines are harvested in September and pressed directly. What results from this pressing is turned into wine, and further treated until it becomes a neutral base spirit at 96% volume. Compared to traditional grain base spirits, the grape spirit used to produce G?Vine Gin is palpably mellower and brings taste nuances that are truly unconventional for a gin. The G?Vine creators regard this grape spirit as the perfect base to experiment further with innovative gin botanicals.
G?Vine Gin ? innovation you can taste
G?Vine Gin comes in two equally distinctive varieties: G?Vine Floraison and G?Vine Nouaison, both of which are available to purchase in the online shop here at Urban Drinks.
G?Vine Gin Nouaison is recognisable by the charcoal-tinted bottle. According to the producers, this colour is representative of the moment at which the grapes begin to grow. That?s also the reason for the name Nouaison, which means something like ?the birth of the grape?. This G?Vine Gin is marked by a soft floral aroma, in which notes of juniper and more fruity colourations are also to be recognised. Other botanicals in G?Vine Gin?s Nouaison include ginger, lemon, and cinnamon.
G?Vine Gin Floraison is well-rounded in character and neatly balanced in its aromas. The grapes that make the base of this gin are also detectable on the palate, alongside pleasantly powerful floral tones, finely complemented by the other carefully selected botanicals.
