Invivo & Co’s collaboration with the international star and host of the UK’s number one chat show has been anything but the clichéd celebrity endorsement.
The first vintage in 2014 was uniquely produced by flying freshly picked Marlborough grapes to London to be crushed by Graham’s feet on the set of his show! The juice was then taken back to New Zealand and added to Graham’s wine…adding a touch of “Norton Hemisphere” magic to every bottle.
From 14,000 bottles in 2014 to over 3m bottles this year, the wine range by Invivo & Co and Graham Norton has now expanded to include Rosé, Shiraz and Prosecco.
But it’s not all about wine! In 2019 Invivo & Co and Graham Norton launched Graham Norton’s Own GiN – an Irish GiN that celebrates Graham’s West Cork Heritage, the beauty and flavours of his idyllic native county and his award-winning flair for blending perfection.
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.
