Pavan Liqueur Launch

Pavan Liqueur launched in Sydney this week at an aperitif hour with cocktails matched with French-inspired canapés at Ananas Bar and Brasserie.

Pavan is a Muscat liqueur made using Muscat grapes sourced from the AOC region of Frontignan in the south of France and finished with a delicate aroma of orange blossom.

Pavan Liqueur with Peacock Tail

Named after the 16th century dance of the peacock, Pavan’s ornate bottle with its Mediterranean blue hue may lead you to think it’s a feminine drink with its aromatic nose but the liqueur is versatile and can be sipped neat, or on ice as an aperitif, used it in cocktails, or enjoyed after dinner with a selection of French cheeses.

Pavan (18% ABV) has a golden colour which comes from a combination of the Muscat wine and maturation process. On the nose, it has orange blossom and sweet grapes which translate to the palate yet it is not overly sweet. Fruity and floral, it has a medium finish and lingering orange blossom notes.

On arrival, the Peacock Tail cocktail was served, made with Pavan, Gin Mare and lemon juice, paired with a salted cod, cucumber and fennel tart.

All Seasons Cocktail, 1808 Cocktail

Next was the All Seasons Cocktail created by Ryan Gardam, Bar Manager at Café Sydney, a combination of Pavan, Muscat, grapefruit, bitters and a little Prosecco matched with truffle chicken liver pate on brioche with Pavan jelly.

1808 Cocktail by Luke Hanzlicek of the Victoria Room combined Pavan with Campari and Mt Gay XO Rum into a perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness which makes it easy to sip one or three.  The cocktail was served with a pissaladiere of caramelised onions, olive and anchovies.

Both signature Pavan cocktails will be available at these venues.

To finish, a Pavan Sangria was served made with Pavan Liqueur, soda water and single fruit, matched with a delicious risotto of wild mushroom and confit duck.
