June Liqueur of Gin - Watermelon
JUNE GIN presents its third limited edition gin distilled and infused with natural flavours: JUNE Watermelon. This emblematic fruit of the summer season, with its juicy, fragrant flesh, adds a new dimension to this premium gin made from grapes and vine flowers for an endless taste of summer.
The sweet, tangy flavours of watermelon are enhanced by the freshness of cucumber and accompanied by a subtle bouquet of spices. The palate is silky and delicious, with a fresh, tangy finish and good length.
Jean-Sébastien Robicquet is the head of the renowned Maison Villevert, located in Merpins, Charente. To create his gins, he has adapted a recipe dating back to 1495 and whose base was distilled grapes rather than grain alcohol, which gives them a smoothness and a nice creaminess. Their copper still, specially designed for G'Vine Floraison, is beautifully named Lily Fleur, because the uniqueness of their gins is that they contain hand-picked vine flowers in the spring, which is a great luxury since they will not bear fruit in September.
It is on this exceptional basis that June was created. Fresh and fragrant, June is a gin liqueur where vine peaches, summer fruits and G'Vine Gin, a French gin elaborated by Maison Villevert from grapes, merge. Pleasantly perfumed, round and smooth, it is a delight to sip with sparkling water or a good tonic, with a few slices of white fruit.
