Aelred Melonade Aperitif 700ml
Country of origin: France Alcohol content: 12% ABV
Made in the heart of Drôme Provençale, Melonade uses Cavaillon melons grown in Provence to capture a sunny holiday afternoon in a bottle.
Ripe and juicy melon without cloying sweetness—eminently drinkable.
Enjoy over ice with dry sparkling wine. Try adding it to desserts for a burst of fruit.
Ælred, meaning “spirit of the spring”, is made by Domaine Eyguebelle, located in France’s most beautiful and most productive fruit-growing region. Domaine Eyguebelle traces its roots back to 1137 in the Cistercian monastery of Aiguebelle, nestled between orchards and lavender fields, where monks worked with patience and passion to create fruit and herb liqueurs. In 1996, the operation became a secular business and was renamed Eyguebelle but continued to operate inside the Abbey to preserve its legacy and the partnerships with local producers which guarantee the quality and taste of the fruits and herbs used in its products. It left the Abbey grounds in 2006 for a new site just a few kilometres away in Valaurie, in the Drôme Provençale. The production methods remain unchanged. Each step is completed with painstaking care, giving their liqueurs the unique taste developed by generations of herbalists.
