OUR STORY

C´EST PARFAIT, C´EST VOLÉE

The year is 1972. On a mild summer’s evening in La Croix Valmer, a small village on the Côte d'Azur, Jakob and his parents paid a visit to their French family friends. Jean and Amandine prepared their own aperitif, by picking fresh fruits from their garden and pressing them into a big carafe. Their homemade drink was refreshing, but bitter and complex, with no added sugar and no alcohol — so everyone could fill a glass, even the kids.
Now, Jakob and his partner Benjamin have replicated Jean and Amandine’s original creation, using the juice from chardonnay grapes, macerates of grapefruit, mountain peach, elderflower and bitter orange. They mix everything together with a blend of damiana herbal tea and Verjus, the juice of unripe grapes from Rheinhessen.
There’s a touch of organic cane sugar for sweetening, and no chemical stabilizers. That’s why they call it Aperetif Naturel. 
It’s an homage to life’s simple pleasures, for living the good life in the evening — and the morning after.
Avec Plaisir!
  • "A floral fruity aperitif that is perfect for mixing with tonic or a non-alcoholic sparkling wine."
  • "On the palate, fruity, tart, and bitter notes combine to form a very harmonious fullness, which unfolds both on its own and in combination with additional ingredients such as tonic water, sparkling wine, or a clear spirit like gin or vodka."
  • "Volée seduces you with every sip to the south of France. Made from fragrant peaches, juicy grapefruits, and Verju grapes, it has a refreshingly bitter-sweet taste that is delicious and sophisticated."
