Pavan Liqueur, where have you been all my life???

It’s summer in Australia and I’ve been in search of the perfect drink for the hot days and nights ahead. And here she is!

Iridescent, Lustrous, Shimmering Beauty

What a stunner!! If you don’t pick Pavan Liqueur up for it’s sensational summer cocktail making capabilities, you should buy it just for the impressive art deco bottle, a glorious gold and blue, inspired by the peacock. And who doesn’t love a peacock with their amazing feathers and colours and strut?

I’ll be honest; I’m a sucker for pretty shiny things. I stumbled across Pavan and couldn’t resist giving it a try. It looked fabulous. So why not? Standing on the shelf at Dan’s next to the St Germaine, another divine liqueur that reached cult status amongst cocktail aficionados, the Pavan was glowing. It had a heart. It dazzled like a disco ball.

What, Where, How & Why

Pavan is from the South of France. It is produced with grape juice from hand-harvested Petit Muscat, small sweet white berries grown in perfect proximity to the sun and the Mediterranean Sea. The Muscat juice is fortified with a grape-based spirit. This, the ‘vin de liqueur’, is then aged for two years in century old oak casks. Finally, an infusion of aromatic orange blossom gives it a citrus note.

An intriguing floral, fruity and naturally sweet liqueur, Pavan is best in a refreshing fruit-based summer cocktail. It mixes exceptionally well with sparkling and still wine, as well as clear spirits such as gin and vodka.
