THE LEMONS ARE CONCENTRATED INTO A COMPLEX CITRUS OIL EXTRACT TO PRESERVE THE BRIGHT FLAVOURS WHILE LEAVING LINGERING HINTS OF THE CITRUS FLOWER AND LEMON TREE LEAF.

A LEMON A CUT ABOVE THE REST

MENTON, A SMALL TOWN IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE, IS THE LEGENDARY LEMON-GROWING REGION OF EUROPE. MENTON LEMONS ARE LARGER AND THICKER-SKINNED THAN THEIR WESTERN COUNTERPARTS. THESE IRREGULARLY SHAPED LEMONS ARE MILDER AND LESS ACIDIC. THE THICKER PEELS YIELD HIGHER LEVELS OF ESSENTIAL OIL, MAKING MENTON LEMONS THE FAVOURITE OF RESPECTED FRENCH CHEFS.

PALATE : CLEAN WITH FRESH LEMON NOTES AND A SUBTLE FRUITINESS, SUGGESTIVE OF THE FLORAL, ZESTY NATURE OF THE FRUIT.

FINISH : FRESH WITH LEMON FLAVOUR REMAINING PROMINENT IS THE WARMTH AND RICHNESS OF A WHOLE ORANGE.
