Graham Norton’s Own Irish GiN
Graham Norton’s Own Irish GiN celebrates Graham’s West Cork Heritage, the beauty and flavours of his idyllic native county and his award-winning flair for blending perfection
Following on from the success of Graham’s award-winning GN Wine range which includes Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz, Rosé and Prosecco, Graham Norton has launched his own Irish gin in collaboration with Invivo & Co, which celebrates the beauty and unique flavours of West Cork. Speaking on where the idea for an Irish gin was born, Tim Lightbourne, cofounder of Invivo & Co said ‘“It all started in London in July last year. We were working with Graham on this year’s wine blends. At the end of a three-hour tasting and blending session, someone suggested we celebrate with a round of martinis. It was over the martinis that Graham introduced the idea of an Irish gin and a plan was born to create one.”
Partnering with an Irish distillery was very important to Graham and an extensive search led to a distillery near Graham’s West Cork home. West Cork Distillers, Invivo & Co and Graham Norton have worked together to create two small-batch premium gins. Graham Norton’s Own Irish Pink Gin is made with Irish grain, and draws its flavour from a combination of 12 botanicals including lemon peel, orange peel, elderflower, rose hip, and fuchsia flowers. Graham Norton’s Own Irish Gin is a premium London Dry style, as distinctive as the man himself. Both gins utilise locally foraged botanicals as part of their unique blends.
