The Best of Gins
 
G’vine Nouvaison (France): grapes instead of grain
It is a real jewel, rich in floral flavours, with a base of grapes (instead of the usual grain). Delicate and with persistent sweet and aromatic notes, it perfectly combines the strength of gin with a warm and slightly sweet palate. It is the first gin in the world made with neutral alcohol distilled from grapes with the addition of macerated flowers. The wine, obtained from the Ugni Blanc grapes in the French region of Cognac, is distilled 4 times.
 
Citadelle (France): elegance on palate
This is one of the classiest of gins. With persistent citrus aromas and an intense finish, but a little more bitter than usual, it is the reinterpretation of a recipe dating from 1771. Based on grain alcohol, it is distilled 3 times.
 
Bulldog (England): black label
In a black bottle, which is unusual in the world of gins, it moves the drink into the modern world. Orange, lemon, lime… are all present on the palate, with a great freshness and a slightly bitter but well-balanced finish.
