INVIVO TO LAUNCH GRAHAM NORTON GIN

Innovative wine brand Invivo will partner with an Irish distillery to create Graham Norton gin. It will the fifth Invivo product to be made with the popular television host, following the SauviGNon Black, the Shiraz GN and the ‘Pink BY DesiGN’ Rosé.

The Graham Norton Rosé is the second-highest selling New Zealand rosé in the UK, with the sauvignon blanc in the top three in Ireland.

“Times have certainly changed since it was just Rob and I around the kitchen table in a flat,” co-founder Tim Lightbourne said. “We now have 654 shareholders investing in the business. We’ve had a really positive start to the first six months of the 2018 financial year and look forward to continuing the momentum.”

Invivo sales have risen 35 percent of the last 12 months, with exports making up 86 percent of all sales.
