G’Vine Floraison Gin

On the nose, G’Vine Floraison is almost sweet, floral, with hints of cardamom. The palate is also floral: fleurs de vigne can be perceived, accompanied by notes of cardamom and ginger finishing with licorice.

Unlike most juniper-flavored spirits-composed primarily of an alcohol base derived from wheat, barley or other grasses-G’Vine is composed of alcohol distilled from the fermentation of grapes, more specifically from the fermentation of Ugni Blanc (of the Trebbiano family). The botanicals are steeped in 96.4° grape brandy distilled four times, separated into five different groups: the first with the Fleur de Vigne; the other four are composed of the other nine botanicals divided according to their characteristics. All botanicals remain in infusion for 2 to 5 days, after which the groups are distilled into small Pot Still. A blend of all the distillates is then made along with water and another neutral spirit of Ugni Blanc, and everything is redistilled once again in a Florentine copper still used by perfumery production, nicknamed “Lily Fleur.”

From winemaker to master distiller, Jean-Sébastien Robicquet, feeling compelled to produce something new for the company to which he belongs and with little time at his disposal, well thought that making gin was the ideal solution. An apt choice considering that this is 1999. While other companies were beginning to explore the far-flung corners of the world in search of strange and exotic botanicals with which to flavor their gin, he was instead looking around for the idea. And around him he saw nothing but vineyards and here is the answer. Robicquet remembered that during the month of June, vines, for a period of 10 to 15 days, begin to flower, thus leaving a scent that is nothing more than a preview of the flavors that will develop inside the grape berry. Thus, in 2002 he began his project, using grape blossoms (Fleurs de Vigne) as a key ingredient, leading to what we know today as G’Vine. “Floraison,” in fact, means “bloom,” while “Nouaison” (the name of the second G’Vine gin) stands for “fruit set.” Robicquet is also the master distiller of Ciroc Vodka, in partnership with Diageo. His company, Maison Villevert, is located in the Cognac region and has always stood for high quality standards.
