G’Vine redefines gin by introducing the flavor of the rare green vine flower, bringing beautiful aromatics and floral essences. The Barricade Cocktail was created to commemorate Bastille Day, July 14th, when protesters stormed the barricades of the Bastille prison, leading to the end of the French monarchy and the birth of the French republic. If this cocktail has that much historical importance, it is bound to make a powerful impression! This cocktail uses G’Vine Floraison, an 80 proof liquor that is smooth, vibrantly floral, and warmly spicy.
