Premium drinks importer and distributor Paragon Brands has launched a fruity gin liqueur called June, from Maison Villevert in Cognac, France.
Created by Jean-Sebastian Robiquet, creator of Cîroc Vodka and G’vine Gin, June blends premium G’Vine grape-distillate gin with the flavours of fresh wild peaches and botanicals of the June flower, which only blooms for two days each June on the ripening grape vines of the Cognac vineyards.
Chris Jones, MD of Paragon Brands, said: “Jean Sebastien and Maison Villevert have done an incredible job of capturing the tastes and aromas of fresh wild peaches and marrying them perfectly with a delicate balanced floral gin.
“This offers both traditional and contemporary gin drinkers something new and unique to add to their drinks repertoire. With excellent mixability beyond the usual tonic serve, June works perfectly in a Spritz or with prosecco in a Peach-Gin Bellini.”
