Renais celebrates milestone with limited edition bottle

Renais, the brand founded by siblings Alex and Emma Watson, has released a limited edition bottle to celebrate the first anniversary of its founding.
The Renais Édition Anniversaire bottle features a black and gold foiled label and sleeve, and comes with a wearable pin badge set of a grape, shell, and flower. The pin symbols are provided by a previous limited edition released in 2023, which was illustrated by Renais creative director, actress Emma Watson. 
Alex Waston said: “It has been an incredible first year for Renais and we’re thrilled to be marking our birthday with the release of Renais Édition Anniversaire. Carving out a new space within ultra-premium gin, inspired by French winemaking tradition has long been a dream for Emma and myself. 
“We have both been blown away by the response and are looking forward to opening up the world of Renais to more consumers, introducing new and established gin drinkers to the warm and complex taste profile of our gin.”
Along with the bottle, Renais has a suggested serve; the Crusta Anniversaire is a reimaging of the classic Crusta cocktail. 
The siblings founded Renais in May 2023. Having spent a decade working in the drinks industry, Alex was inspired to distil spirit using by-product grapes from the Watson family vineyard in France. Distilled in the UK from French product, Renais aims to capture the heritage of French winemaking in a craft gin.
In February, Renais announced a distribution deal with Proof Drinks, with the aim to grow its presence in the UK on-trade. The brand is currently distributed in the UK, US, Italy, Germany, and Australia.
