"Parfait Amour is a violet liqueur from the rare and exclusive collection of House of Pagès distinctive French spirits. Parfait Amour is recognized as a leader of its kind. Violets are specially grown in the south of France for their mesmerizing essence. Toulouse—known as ‘The Violet Capital’—is considered the home of this delicate flower, with all of its sweet and fragrant derivatives spotted throughout the city, whether in the form of flowers, confectionery or perfume. For centuries the violet has been used for its medicinal qualities as well as in perfumes, but given its unique flavor and savory possibilities, this blossom is beautifully suited for pastry preparation and liquor production. Parfait Amour is a favorite ingredient in cocktails and is unsurpassed for its sweet, soft and heady aromas... very much like ‘Perfect Love’."

"Pagès Pure Grape Sugar Syrup is 100% natural, contains no additives and is produced from Charente vineyard grapes. The musts are carefully filtered, then heated in a depressurized boiler in order to obtain a lower boiling temperature threshold, preventing the sugar from caramelizing. After the water evaporates a pure,colorless 67 brix syrup remains, composed of 33% fructose, 33% glucose and 34% water. The aroma of light honey and fresh grape is unequaled. Grape sugar syrup is 20% sweeter than traditional sugar, and as a liquid is easy to store and measure. As a taste enhancer, this delightful syrup is a perfect addition to cocktails asking for simple syrup. Try it in your favorite Pisco Sour and Margarita recipes. not only are flavors and aromas accentuated—lemon in particular—it tones down citrus acidity as well.
