Muscat water

or small grain muscat grape marc brandy

Our Muscat à petit grain grapes are pressed, the juice becomes wine and  the skins and seeds are distilled with a little lemon thyme, wild fennel and other herbs from my garden. 

The aromas are particularly fine and elegant, although very present. There are white-fleshed stone fruits, William pear, old Rose; and the whole is reminiscent of a fine Alsatian plum brandy.

Djinn of the Garrigues

or grape marc brandy with aromatic plants from Provence.  

Curiously, the GIN has the reputation of being English or even of Dutch origin, while its aromas are Provençal.   Indeed juniper, lemon thyme, wild fennel, sage, rosemary, etc. grow naturally in abundance around my home.  After fermentation, the "presses" are embellished with these "medicinal" plants and the whole is distilled.

As for the aromas, we find of course the Marc de Provence, as well as notes of juniper, white fruit and almond.  The aromatic intensity makes it possible to drink it pure, but also with Tonic or in a cocktail.


The origin of the word Djinn is very old.

 In the Middle East, long before Islam, there were already demi-gods who could change form, whether human, animal or vegetable, (precursors of the "transforming robots" of our children). Others say they are gods fallen into disuse.  Some scholars, philosophers, and poets considered them sources of inspiration, others on the contrary were very afraid of them. 

 They also appear in different religions such as Zoroastrianism (one of the oldest religions in the world) as well as Christianity and Judaism, as angels or demons.

In Islamic mythology man is fashioned from clay, the jinn from fire, but originally both form organized yet distinct societies. The prophet Mohamed is sent by God to help them live better. He succeeds better with the man than with the jinns who will have to be exterminated... but beware, there are still some left!  For example hidden in the desert near a source or in secluded places.

 In Islamic theology this term refers to what we cannot see or hear, such as angels and demons, but also what lies within us, such as the Western notion of the soul.
