Brad Pitt will premiere a new spirit at the Cannes Film Festival.
Having already established himself in the premium wine and champagne industry, the actor will launch The Gardener Gin at the annual film festival, PEOPLE can reveal exclusively. Cannes is the perfect venue as Pitt’s latest venture, billed as “the French Riviera Gin,” is a premium, dry London-style gin inspired by the south of France.
The Gardener has been quietly teased on social media for two months as “handcrafted by Brad, Tom and Perrin.” (The Perrin family are Pitt’s original partners in his Miraval wines and Tom Nichol is a master distiller.) It will hit U.S. shops in a limited edition in September.
For its formal presentation in Cannes, which kicks off on May 16, Nichol and bartenders at the iconic Carlton Cannes Hotel have concocted a “Secret Garden” cocktail made with gin, lemon juice, orange juice, strawberry syrup and an egg white.

This 42% London Dry Gin inspired by the French Riviera is 100% organic and 100% French, the result of a creation from Charente.
Its elegant, fresh and modern style revives the tradition of the great London Dry. The selection of plants and citrus fruits was meticulous and demanding, to create a product with an undeniable taste quality.
The base of this gin is juniper, angelica, liquorice and coriander.
The Gardener was born from the meeting of the craft, with the Perrin family and the artistic, with Brad Pitt. Both united around the beautiful, the good and a passion for the French Riviera, the Master Distiller Tom Nichol joined them, like an artist, to imagine these recipes.
For years, the French Riviera has been attracting artists and craftsmen from all over the world for its unique art of living, its rich biodiveristy and its good living. Today, it is at the heart of a fabulous creation.
