G'Vine Gin Arrives for Review

G'Vine GinWe just got ourselves a bottle of G'Vine Gin, and we're looking forward to checking it out. For those of you who haven't heard of it, G'Vine is the first white liquor distilled from grape vine flowers, which makes it a pretty close relative to wine. We wonder if it's going to offer us the same health benefits as a glass of red wine. We'll let you know if we feel any more vim and vigor after we conduct our review.

Read a bit more about G'Vine after the jump, including what our good friend Rick from Martini Lounge had to say. Plus, for all you Internet marketers out there, find out why comment Spam isn't a good way to go when you're promoting a product!

From Martini Lounge:

The spirit is distilled in small batches with a blend of nine botanicals: ginger root, licorice, green cardamom, cassia bark, coriander, juniper berries, cubeb berries, nutmeg and lime. It’s then blended with the flowers of the Ugni Blanc leaves and distilled again.

The flavors make it sound like the perfect crossover gin for people who swear they hate the stuff, which seems to be a lot of people.

Sounds like good stuff, and we're kind of hoping we get a nice dose of comment Spam like some of our fellow bloggers did. Check out the comments in the stories about G'Vine (and one not about G'Vine) at the Martini Lounge story, as well as Luxist and Jeffrey Morgenthaler for a good laugh.

Note - we're only including this because we think it's funny...there's a time we would've thought about doing the same thing, and marketing gaffes don't take away from the value of the product.

Bought the G'Vine and would very much like to taste it. I just can't open the bottle. Perhaps I should heat the neck first?

We stand corrected, David. Thanks for straightening us out.

We tried it and liked it a lot too...expect a full review soon.

Actually, G'Vine isn't the first white liquor to be made of grapes. Some vodkas have been distilled from grapes for years, like Ciroc and Idol. In fact, gin and vodka are distilled exactly the same until the last step, when gin is infused with juniper (and other infusants, which vary from company to company).

I tried G'Vine at an art opening, and I was blown away. Definitely great stuff... can't wait until it's distributed to a wider market. It's sort of hard to find at the moment.

Hi,

I just had my first taste of gVine the other night. It's pretty good stuff. I'm not a big gin drinker, but you're right it's not your typical gin. It tastes kinda flowery. (it's hard to describe) Thanks for the tip.
