A spirit that pays tribute to the timeless glamour of the French Riviera, The Gardener Gin has been co-created by Hollywood star Brad Pitt.
From Christian Dior and Brigitte Bardot to Grace Kelly and The Rolling Stones, the French Riviera has long served as a playground for the international jet set.
Now, Brad Pitt, the Perrin Family – producers of Château Miraval and long-term owners of Château de Beaucastel in Châteauneuf-du-Pape – and master distiller Tom Nichol have paid tribute to this glamorous spot with the Gardener Gin, which made its big debut at the re-opening of the Carlton Hotel during the 2023 Cannes Film Festival this May.
After amassing more than 40 years of experience in the art of making gin – he made his name at Tanqueray and received Lifetime Achievement Award from the Gin Guild in 2015 – Tom Nichol has now created the ultimate London Dry Gin.
Like a rare organic grand cru, with a unique, intense taste, the gin is made from wheat in copper stills, and the spirit rests on a canvas of juniper, liquorice, angelica, and coriander with fresh and dry citruses: pink grapefruit, bright lemon and the yin and yang of sweet and bitter orange from the Cap d’Antibes area.
Perfect for Negronis, Martinis and, of course a gin and tonic, this is the gin you should be drinking this summer.
