DISTILLERIES ET DOMAINES DE PROVENCE
NOIX DE LA SAINT JEAN APÉRITIF
'MADE IN PROVENCE'
Enter into a history packed with taste, the history of a distillery which has inherited ancestral traditions but certainly knows how to move with the times. Distilleries et Domaines de Provence selected the location of Forcalquier, the capital of flavours and fragrances, where it has remained to this day. In the heart of rural Provence, in an authentic setting between mountains and scrublands, it lovingly rewrites the recipes for its Aperitifs and Spirits. No need to wonder where this subtle blend of many flavours originates. It comes from one of the most fragrant regions of France, where expertly selected ingredients are combined to make products worthy of the “Made in Provence” label.
Noix de Saint Jean owes its name to the very ingredient that makes it unique: the best Dauphiné green walnuts, gathered at optimum maturity on the St. Jean (St. Jean’s Day).
To enhance the flavour of the nuts, the Distilleries et Domaines de Provence recipe combines them with nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. It’s the subtle touches which gives the aperitif its spicy and fruity flavours.
Nose: On the nose, the dominant aroma is walnuts completed by a more spicy note of spice bread and dried fruit.
Palate: On the palate, the aromas of this aperitif are marked by the walnut and nut stain subtly flattered by a spicy note of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Noix de la Saint Jean is well balanced between acidity and sugars with a good volume on the palate. The astringency of this nut gives this aperitif a good lingering flavour.
