The First 100% French Vodka Rosé
We would like to dedicate the launch of The first 100% French Vodka Rosé, around International Women’s Day.
The spirit is a creation of our Master Distiller, Scientist and Inovateur Marie-Anne Contamin.
As we know, women distillers are few in the industry, however, Marie-Anne continues to challenge innovative distilling techniques and make use of the expertise of the region, to create yet another liquid undeniably from the Côte d’Azur.
Comte de Grasse distillery is nestled in Grasse, where perfume masters have been extracting and blending flavours for years. Coupled with superior terroir and the heritage of Provence the distillery has challenged the creation of the first Vodka Rosé that focuses on flavour extraction rather than simple blending. Marie-Anne Contamin, Master Distiller and previously an aromatician, has created an innovative process to create a new style of Vodka Rosé, we call it ACTIVE WINE EXTRACTION (AWX).
“As flavour specialists within the industry with our key roots being heritage and terroir, we've harnessed the art of extraction in the Provence icon being Rosé wine and I am thoroughly pleased that 06 VODKA ROSÉ has come to life”
06 Vodka represents 6pm En Provence, that beautiful time when apéritif brings friends and family together to enjoy a moment, the pleasure of time and place that only the Southeasternmost corner of France can offer. An occasion to share.
The liquid starts with French winter wheat. The special micro-climate and terroir of the region results in a soft wheat which is perfectly distilled with the purest spring water to create the smoothest vodka. On the nose you discover the scents of rosé wine (here specifically from Domaine Château Vert), elegant and concentrated freshness with aromas of strawberry. The taste is refined with delicate and subtle floral notes being revealed, a French Riviera explosion on your taste buds, a soft fruity finish of white peach, all reminiscent of a Provençal breeze.
To celebrate the launch of 06 Vodka this International Women’s Day. Every bottle purchase will be accompanied by a bespoke 06 rosé candle, all reminiscent of the liquid, made locally and in collaboration with Bougies et Senteur in the capital of fragrance. Perfect for any 6pm Occasion.
