G'Vine Floraison

70 cl

Hand crafted in Cognac, France, G’Vine Floraison emphasizes the vine flower which blossoms once a year, in mid-June, for just a few days before giving birth to a grape berry. Gently awakened by the sun, this lush period of new beginnings is called Floraison in French. A bewitching and unique fragrance of flowers and fruits arises from the vineyard. This precious and delicate flower, which exists for just a few days before maturing into a grape berry, is immediately hand picked to preserve its exhilarating and spellbinding fragrance. The flower is carefully macerated in the neutral grape spirit during several days to obtain the best floral essence. The infusion is then distilled in a small Florentine pot still. The result of this unique process is a wonderful journey into the very essence of the blossoming vineyards. As the neutral grape spirit and the green grape flower infusion are nurtured, nine fresh whole-fruit botanicals chosen for their purity, aroma and healing properties are sourced and collected from all over the world.

Fact Sheet
Fluid 70 cl
Ingredients The botanicals include juniper berries, ginger root, liquorice, cassia bark, green cardamom, coriander, cubeb berries, nutmeg and lime. These botanicals are macerated over a two to five days process by group to extract their purest aromas and distilled in the neutral grape spirit.
Alcohol % 40%
Making Techniques Small bespoken liquor stills are used to insure the best quality. In September, the grapes are harvested and immediately pressed and converted to wine. The result is then distilled in a column still producing a neutral grape spirit over 96.4 % ABV – 192.8 proof. In the final step, the green grape flowers infusion, the botanicals distillates and more neutral grape spirit are blended together in perfect proportion and undergo a final distillation in a copper pot still affectionately nicknamed “Lily Fleur.” The result is G’Vine Floraison, the world’s first gin made from grape spirit, starring the vine flower.
