Tasting comments

Michael Isted – Drinks Consultant Gorgeous Group – UK


On the nose heavenly notes of youthful freshly grown lavender lead into beautiful fragant notes of creamy lemon zest. On the palate this eau de vie explodes with sensual floral notes that bloom, revealing more mature or even dried lavender and hints of sweet spice. This spirit beautifully captures the true essence and the real heart & soul of lavender.


Intriguing sweet vegetal notes lead into buttered honey spice on the nose. Wonderful aromatics of caramelized herbs are punctuated with hints of crème caramel and toffee. The initial sweetness gives way to freshly picked basil leaves and leads to beautiful cracked black pepper spice. The finish leaves long spicy hues of fresh basil and delicious sweet aromatic spices on the palate.

Alisier Réserve

Rather unexpected but incredible notes of stone fruit and sweet almond on the nose it’s almost impossible to believe that it is not a stone fruit. Hints of Marasca cherries and apricot sensually waltz on the senses intriguing the palate with its elegance and beauty. Unbelievable depth of aromatics this spirit is so fascinating. Utterly in awe of this the drinker is magically hypnotized with the way the spirit weaves its way across the palate asking questions that perhaps cannot be answered. Breath taking and beautiful balance of ripe stone fruit combine with delicious floral hints of violet and iris. The finish is long and elegant, peppered with beautiful sweet spice and fragrant flowers, am I in Heaven?

Pain d’Epice

On the nose warm, embracing notes of freshly baked ginger bread lead into exotic spices. Wonderful harmony of cardamom, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg, balanced to perfection. Sweet cardamom leads on the palate before a crackle of sizzling ginger and cinnamon is revealed, transporting the drinker into the Souks of Morocco at dusk, open sacks of freshly ground spice tantalizing the palate long into the night. The finish lingers long filling the mouth with tingling aromatic spice and leaving the palate demanding more.

Williams Liqueur

Lovely subtle but unmistakeable aromatics of ripe Williams pear linger on the nose like walking through an orchard on a late summers day. As soon as you taste this liqueur the palate is overwhelmed like the sensation of taking that first bite from a beautifully ripe pear, bursting with flavour in the mouth. Juicy and utterly delicious, like the perfectly sun ripened pear. Cracking balance of ripe fruit and sweetness, not too sweet though like many liqueurs this translates the true essence of the Williams pear. This liqueur leaves the palate yearning for more like biting into that perfectly ripe pear; it holds the flavour incredibly well offering great length and depth especially for a liqueur.
