Champagne Collet Esprit Couture
This elegant champagne is intended for chic aperitifs, for a moment of airy relaxation. This wine will also accompany with ease the meal and especially a roasted poultry or a pigeon with caviar. A blend of 11 Premiers and Grands Crus selected in 2012. 60% Chardonnay from Grands Crus villages such as Avize, Chouilly and Cramant give Esprit Couture its freshness, tonicity, elegance and finesse. The shape of the bottle is inspired by the bottles of the great French perfumers.
Distillerie du St. Laurent, in collaboration with Rose Simard of 1 or 2 Cocktails, has launched a new project that redefines the ready-to-drink cocktail experience. With Amour Liquide, the duo is offering a range of bar-quality cocktails in pocket size.
For now, three pocket-sized cocktails (Espresso Martini, Negroni and Old Fashioned) are available. They all come in adorable 100 ml cans and have an alcohol content of 25%.
Whether you’re hosting a dinner party at home with your closest friends or going out on the town, Cîroc Vodka, the pinnacle of contemporary luxury is there to elevate every beverage. Made from French grapes and with inspiration from more than a century of winemaking craftsmanship and know-how, provides just the perfect amount of distinction and has a smooth, fresh finish. The bottle is straightforward but instantly recognizable as bold, making it a valued possession on anyone’s bar cart.
Gin du Jardin Chelsea Dry Gin
The Outaouais region’s Prickly-Ash pepper and juniper berry are only two of the distinctive ingredients in the Gin du Jardin, which was made with fresh, locally obtained resources from Quebec. Strong flavours of cantaloupe are backed by sage, mint, basil, cucumber, and fresh lemon zest in its distinctive flavour profile. This gin transports you deep within a summer garden. It is a sophisticated and simple product that can be appreciated as a cocktail or as a pure tasting thanks to its complexity and freshness. The company’s initial offering is this gin concoction, which is reminiscent of the pleasant landscape and magnificent flora of Gatineau Park.
Moët Chandon Pop Up
In case you haven’t heard, you can get your bottle of Moët personalized at Carrefour Laval for the holidays. Until December 23, Montrealers will have the opportunity to personalize their own bottle thanks to The Art of Gifting. You can get a bottle of Impérial Brut or Rosé personalized with your name or the name of a loved one. Additionally, guests can add a personal touch to a Christmas present by having a distinctive phrase calligraphed on the glass.
