Editors notes

While renowned for her roles in acting and activism, Emma Watson has ventured back into her family's traditional trade, embarking on a new venture alongside her brother Alex. Their latest endeavor, Renais, introduces a captivating gin that bears the hallmarks of family heritage. The roots of this remarkable spirit extend deep into the heart of Chablis, a place with which their father Chris has shared an enduring connection through his ownership of vineyards spanning three decades.

At the core of Renais lies a base spirit crafted meticulously through the distillation of wine grape skins and lees. Some of these essential components are sourced directly from the family's esteemed Domaine Watson, intertwining their personal legacy with the creation. The essence of Chablis finds its embodiment in the form of Kimmeridgian limestone – a fundamental geological element of the Chablis, Chablis Premier Cru, and Chablis Grand Cru vineyards. This limestone has been distilled and skillfully merged with the grape distillate, a deliberate effort to eloquently convey the essence of the appellation's terroir.

The gin's botanical makeup is a symphony of flavors, including the essence of pressed Chablis Grand Cru grapes that infuse a sense of the vineyard's nobility. Complementing this are linden flowers, imbuing a delicate floral note, alongside cubeb berries which provide a touch of piquant complexity. To crown this intricate blend, acacia honey lends its gentle sweetness, harmonizing the composition.

Renais is more than just a gin; it's a narrative of family dedication, a tribute to the land, and an embodiment of heritage. The fusion of tradition and innovation yields a spirit that encapsulates the Watson family's journey through Chablis and distills it into a refined and evocative experience.

United Kingdom

England is gaining a reputation as a force to be reckoned with in the sparkling-wine world. The country does make some still wines, but the sparkling wines made in the traditional method are those most grabbing consumers’ attention. In fact, these wines represent nearly two-thirds of English wine production. Despite the country’s well-earned reputation for rain, the southern portion, where most production takes place, enjoys a somewhat warmer, drier climate. The primary winemaking regions are Kent, Surrey, and Sussex – all of which have similar soils and climate – though South West England, Hampshire, and East Anglia are well worth a taste, too. Among the UK’s popular wine varieties are the traditional method sparkling wine grapes – Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier; Bacchus; Seyval Blanc; Ortega; and Reichensteiner.
