With Gin proving to be the drink of choice for summer, the folks of Provence thought they had better get in on the act, and what a gin they have given us.

Our friends at Bariana have created the first gin to come out of Provence & they have created one that beautifully represents its birthplace as well as reflecting this time of year.

Named for the month when all its botanicals are harvested the nose hits you with an abundance of fresh fruits. White peach, melon & apricot all mingle together with the juniper. On the palate those delicate fruits continue, before being replaced by the juniper & a punch of Aniseed. How very French. Finally a lovely blend of pepper & herb tail off into the sunset.

An extremely versatile gin, Juillet works well with different tonics. Like that aniseed, bring that flavour to the front with a light tonic, prefer the fruits, mix it with a Mediterranean tonic and revel in the peach.

A perfect gin to sip on a summers eve.
