How is it different? The grapes are distilled to create a grape spirit, before being blended with grain spirit and further combined with expertly blended botanicals, including juniper, myrrh, rooibos and coriander to craft an exceptionally unique drink. Aesthetically and flavour wise, this gin is a triumph. We adored the citrus notes and complexity of the balanced botanicals, as well as the exciting grape backdrop that has lead to so many awards for this gin.
Using grapes as its base ingredient is what gives this award winning gin its inimitable flavour. The combination of botanicals in this environmentally friendly gin creates a sophisticated profile, a complexity, and stylishly sweet citric notes, meaning it pairs perfectly with a simple tonic, yet lends itself to more daring mixing if you’re gifting to a cocktail making loved one. This one-of-a-kind gin is a beautiful gift, thanks to its sophisticated bottle, featuring bronze foil detailing and sleek design.
Available in Tesco stores nationwide, as well as on Amazon, consciously priced at £26, making it an affordable gift that is certain to please any recipient.
