Allaire Privee Tequila: Inspired by the je ne sais quois of the glamorous lifestyle from the Cote d’Azure Allaire Privée in targeting discerning spirit connoisseurs. The founder’s priorities were to create a complex and perfect relationship between interior and exterior, balancing and uniting it, without compromise to achieve it. Investing in R&D, quality and attention to detail were key elements of the development of the collection, which also includes a vodka from Poland and rum from Barbados. Allaire’s innovations in spirit production is what the creators hope leads to an elevation in luxury spirits that reflects their opulent lifestyle and characteristic style.
Aged Crystal Tequila: The super-premium Allaire Crystal Aged Tequila comes from 100% select Blue Tequilana Weber Agaves from the Los Altos Region in Jalisco, Mexico. The production includes slow cooking at lower temperatures for at least 48 hours to achieve a balance of sweetness and true agave flavor. Produced in small batches using only the heart of the distillation, Allaire is free of any additives aimed at respecting its true essence. The spirit is then aged at least 6 months in Bourbon Oak Casks and then filtered with a proprietary process to give it a characteristic crystal tone.
Sal de Ibiza Fleur de Sel: One of the unique elements in the Royal Golden margarita that you might not recognize is the salt rim that compliments the cocktail and the Allaire Tequila. For over 2,700 years, this premium sea-salt has been harvested in the saline fields on the Mediterranean island of Ibiza. The island’s inhabitants have always been very proud of their marine salt, regarded as one of the best of its kind. The supreme “Queen of Salts” is hand-harvested in the Nature Reserve of the “Parc natural de ses Salines d’Eivissa”, is the “Fleur de Sel” (Blossom of Salt). Unique in taste and texture, it is a rare and precious delicacy.
