When two things that we love come together, we are always pretty thrilled. Which is why we are absolutely ecstatic that one of our favourite TV hosts is releasing his very own gin. Yup, Graham Norton, the hilarious presenter of The Graham Norton Show who gets celebs to spill the beans (with or without a drink or two) will now be a part of your drinks cabinet? So you can almost say that you’re having a cocktail with the star himself!

The presenter teased the news in a video on Vimeo revealing that Graham Norton’s very own gin will be available in supermarkets very soon. This new venture isn't completely new to the star though, who already has his own wine which he launched with New Zealand wine producers Invivo in 2014. Their Sauvignon Black 2017 won a Gold medal in the Drinks Business Global Sauvignon Masters last year, and was even chosen to be served in Quantas Business Class. In 2015, they produced 50,000 bottles, but business has been doing so well that they are expecting to produce more than three million this year. What an incredible achievement!
Graham personally selects the blends of his GN Pinot rose, Shiraz, and Sauvignon Blanc wines alongside the brand’s founders, Tim Lightbourne and Rob Cameron, who say that their wines are made from “grapes, time and two maxed out credit cards”. This sounds like the perfect job really - sampling wine for a living, what could be better? Except sitting on a sofa and chatting to celebrities, of course...
