Avèze was founded in 1929 by Emile REFOUVELET who strived to place the Cantal at the core of his products to please as many bitter connoisseurs as possible through his skill in the art of distilling and maceration. This is why three new products are in the works to be presented on our shop shelves for the end of the year.
First up is a pastis with complex overtones of spices, plants and of course, anise. By mixing it with our gentian liqueur, you can make a fresh and authentic cocktail: the Pastis of Volcanoes. In a pastis-type glass, pour 3 cl of Avèze Pastis then 1 cl of Avèze Gentian liqueur. Top it off with some ice-cold water and then enjoy its taste, imagining the chilly stream waters of Auvergne …
There is then a gin which is an ode to nature with its bouquet of 13 chosen plants such as juniper, violet, rosemary, or even coriander … using this gin, concoct a fragrant cocktail with typical gentian aromas: the Gin of Volcanoes. First of all, pour 3 cl of Avèze Gin then 1 cl of Avèze Gentian liqueur. Finish off with some tonic water and add some lemon zest for decoration and ice cubes for freshness.
Last of all, since our gentian roots come from the Regional Nature Park of the Auvergne Volcanoes, we have created the Volcano Liqueur! This green liqueur promises you a scent-laden and flavourful journey to the heart of the dormant Auvergne volcanoes with its recipe made of wild gentian (from the Regional Nature Park of the Auvergne Volcanoes, of course) and natural plants. Enjoy this Volcano liqueur as a digestif at the end of a meal, neat or with ice.
You’ll find these three new drinks at the end of 2020 at the Avèze visitor centre in Riom-ès-Montagnes!
