In honour of Bastille Day & the 10th Anniversary of luxury French gin brand G’Vine Gin, we bring you a delicious and refreshing cocktail recipe!
Crafted from the very best French grapes, infused with vine flowers and nine other luxury botanicals including juniper berries, green cardamom and ginger roots selected for their purity and aroma, G’Vine Gin is a very special gin indeed.
The hero botanical is the precious vine flower, which blossoms just once a year in mid-June, and exists for just a few days before maturing into a grape berry. These botanicals, along with a lower sugar content than standard London gins, make G’Vine a healthier option that still packs a refreshing punch.
