About Pavan Liqueur

Named after the classic 16th century dance of the peacock, Pavan is crafted with fine Muscat grapes from the renowned AOC (Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée) region of Frontignan, where vineyards are surrounded by seaside air and gentle hills. Long exposure to the sun and proximity to the sea provide the perfect conditions for the Muscat vines to thrive, producing small berries that are naturally sweet and rich n aromas. The Muscat grapes are handpicked, pressed and blended with fine grape-based spirits. The “vin de liqueur” is then aged two to three years in oak casks dating back to the 19th century, allowing the blend to mature slowly while retaining the original aromas and freshness of the grape. Finally, the Muscat “vin de liqueur” is blended with a touch of fine orange blossoms from the Mediterranean. This infusion gives Pavan its aromatic citrus notes and characteristic freshness.
