SWEET GWENDOLINE FRENCH GIN is sourced in the South of France, in the medieval town of Brive-la-Gaillarde. The commune added Gaillarde, a term for bravery, to its name in 1919, and a world war later, it was the first French city to liberate itself. Such a legacy informs the family-owned spirits house that is now entrusted with handcrafting Sweet Gwendoline French Gin in small-scale batches.
Our heroine and namesake Sweet Gwendoline first makes an appearance as a full-page teaser for a serial strip in BIZARRE VOL 2, January 1946. Throughout the series, Gwendoline encounters role playing characters depicting an upstairs-downstairs type of domesticity: maids, drivers, the Countess and Sir (dystic) dArcy.
Because of their dastardly plots to restrain her, the delightful but hapless whirlwind that is Sweet Gwendoline spends most of her time being rescued by her friend Secret Agent U 69 having been caught in a pickle again. Sweet gwendoline is a highly erotic role play fantasy told through subversive wit and humour wrapped in knots and corsets. But, beneath Gwendolines feigned naivet and damsel-in-distress routine is a woman acting out her erotic, bondage fantasies in her own sweet way.
