L'Esprit de June Liqueur

Top 10 Spirits 2011

L'Esprit de June Liqueur is made in the Cognac region of France


In Cognac — the region of France, not the drink — delicate little flowers bloom on the vines of Ugni Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and other grape varietals for just a few days every June. In order to savor these tiny blossoms throughout the year, the makers of L'Esprit de June pick and gather them by hand, add them to pure grape spirit and then blend them together to make a refreshingly fragrant and floral liqueur. L'Esprit de June makes for a delicious drink on its own, whether chilled or on ice, but also adds a certain je ne sais quoi to any cocktail.
