The nine other botanicals which flavour G'Vine include juniper berries, ginger root, liquorice, cassia bark, green cardamom, coriander, cubeb berries, nutmeg and lime. These botanicals are macerated in neutral grape spirit over a two to five day process by group to extract their purest aromas and distilled in the neutral grape spirit. They are then distilled in small bespoke stills.
Finally the various infusions, botanical distillates and more neutral grape spirit are blended together to undergo a final distillation in a copper pot still affectionately nicknamed 'Lily Fleur'.
Each bottle is individually numbered on the bottle's neck.

(bot N0. 08B1460) Crystal clear
Floral, mineral nose with aromas of juniper, coriander and lime zest with fainter hints of fresh root ginger and rose water.
Piney juniper notes rightly predominate on the huge palate with fresh coriander right up there and lime zest close behind. Spicy notes of nutmeg, ginger and sweet liquorice follow, along with floral flavours.
Nouaison is bigger and spicier than G'Vine's Floraison, making it more suited to traditionalist gin drinkers.
