(Nouaison in French), i.e. the birth of the berry. The fecundated vine flower forms a tiny green berry that fixes itself onto the stem. G’Vine Nouaison captures the emotion around this birth and its silver grey bottle embodies the unique and vibrant concentration of energy, intensity and spiciness of this phase.
JASON WILSON for the Washington Post "One of my favorite gins is G’Vine Nouaison... This one has a real juniper kick that is delicious, especially in a sort of French martini that substitutes Lillet Blanc for dry vermouth." PAUL PACULT Spirit Journal "An evolving gem in the new, less juniper driven style of gin. Many gin traditionalists despise anything but London Dry, but I urge that you try this intriguing new entry. If I bestowed half stars, I’d rate Nouaison 4 ½." JONATHAN M. FORESTER , for Slashfood.com "The aroma is elegant and refined, clean and pure, like how the air smells right after a Autumn downpour. This is ginny, gin, gin."
