L’Esprit de June – the only liqueur in the world made from a bouquet of vine flowers
L’Esprit de June is the first expression of June liqueurs. In French, esprit is the soul, the spirit and a state-of-mind. Delicate, yet intense, June is the only liqueur in the world made from a bouquet of vine flowers, each bringing specific flavors.
Ugni Blanc flowers provide pear, peach and white floral notes.
Merlot flowers lend wild strawberry and cherry-blossom aromas.
Cabernet Sauvignon flowers share strawberry, raspberry and violet tones.
The use of other vine flowers such as Folle Blanche and Sauvignon Blanc allows the master distiller to guaranty Esprit de June’s exquisite flavor profile year after year despite the vintage effect. The complex floral and fruity aromas are carried by the silky and round grape spirit. Progressively revealed, they finally melt into an incredible long lasting sensory explosion.
With a minimum amount of sugar, and 28% ABV, Esprit de June may well be the most perfectly balanced liqueur. When all the flavour have been extracted, the neutral grape spirit containing a specific type of vine-flower, is strained off and distilled in a Florentine pot still, the same kind used by master perfume makers.
