Fluère is the perfect base for a non-alcoholic long drink (such as Fluère & tonic) and because of its unique and subtle taste it is also a very versatile mixer for various non-alcoholic cocktail and low-alcohol drinks. Unique to Fluère is the pleasant after bite that is normally generated by alcohol. Fluère creates a new generation of adult drinks with a rich experience.
Fluère is a short and powerful name from Latin. Fluère means "Flow" which refers to the fact that it is a liquid product and refers to "being in the flow"; the optimal experience of a moment. Where the lack of alcohol in Fluère ensures that after consuming different Fluère mix drinks or mocktails you are still in balance / stay in the flow.
Fluère is made by a Steam distillation process;
"Steam distillation is a technique employed to distill alcohol or extract essential oils from organics by passing steam through the plant material. Temperature sensitive compounds which would normally decompose through simple distillation vaporise at lower temperatures when subjected to steam in the vapour chamber or colum. This allows for the separation of essential oils, which tend to be less soluble in boiling water, from chemically complex materials. When the steam passes through the organic material tiny pockets that hold the essential oils open to release the essential oil molecules without damaging or burning these delicate components. The distillate will contain a mix of water vapour and essential oils which return to their liquid form in the condensing recipient and are separated using a Florentine separator. Both the essential oils and the water called floral water or hydrolats is retained. The distillation procedure is the same as for the simple distillation method with the exception that distillation takes place by means of steam.
As for essential oils, using steam for alcohol distillation permits the distillate to retain the more delicate flavours and aromas which would otherwise breakdown if subjected to high temperatures. This process is typically used to extract essential oils from aromatic plants to flavour liqueurs. Alternatively alcohol may be distilled from fermented matter placed in the column of an alembic such as pressed grape skins left over from wine making.
There are obvious advantages to steam distillation with commercial applications in the food, medical and chemical industry, for example aromatic oils, hydrolats, perfumes and essences."
Seeds from the exotic Casablanca coriander, the best juniper berries from the high peaks of the Himalaya, exquisite lavender from the Provence, fresh raspberries, pure sugar-cane molasses, roasted coffee, cocoa, liquorice, tonic beans, toffee and Mediterranean lemon peel.
"Only the finest botanicals, fruits and ingredients are used for Fluère" products.
To get the best out of every branch, leaf and berry, all botanicals are individually distilled using so called hydrosteam distillation. The essential oils derived from the distilling process ensure the premium taste and unique after-bite of any drink made with Fluère.
A tasting pallet interpretation in the spirit industry that emerged since 2017, the use of flowers in distilled spirits.
We looked at a nicely and well balanced recipe for Fluère Original in which the lavender at Fluère gives the floral expression to the pallet of Fluère.
A well balanced floral non-alcoholic spirit with a good after-bite. Lavender, coriander, juniper and lemon zest that provide a fresh, well balanced and floral aftertaste with a unique after-bite. The unique bite of Fluère is due to the specific composition of the product to which the juniper and coriander make an important contribution - which is widely appreciated.
Whole new category, the non-alcoholic distilled spirits.
This is a completely new category; our non-alcoholic spirit is made on the basis of the steam distillation process. Distilling is the separation of substances, this is done in kettles, so that you have pure pure extracts. The botanical extracts in Fluère Original are juniper, lavender, coriander and citrus (lemon peel). Those extracts then undergo a process of filtering, mixing and harmonizing. The expertise of the distiller is in the perfect harmony of smells and tastes; an art that guarantees both consistency and quality of the final product. This process is more difficult than it seems and produces an advanced product that in the right composition is a worthy alternative to regular alcoholic products.
To approach the complex taste characteristics of a traditional spirit. Various production processes are required for Fluère. Mainly we work with essential oils that are made by steam distillation. The other distillates are also produced with the addition of neutral alcohol. The most difficult part is distilling the desired substances in the right concentration without adding any solvent.
Like some other food products e.g. Vinager and orange juice Fluère contains trace amounts of alcohol but because it’s less then 0.1% alcohol we can call ourselve an alcohol free spirit. The 0.1% alcohol comes from the fermentation process that takes place before each individual botanicals is distilled.
Fluère is an adventurous mixer that ensures that you are just as sharp and fit even after a few drinks. An easy drinker who can be drunk at any time of the day. In addition, Fluère can be used to lower the alcohol percentage of an alcoholic mix or cocktail by adding Fluère as an additional base product while retaining the bite. You create a low cocktail, as it were, by replacing a distilled component with Fluère.
"Fluère is more than a drink.It might not be a way of life but at the very least it’s a friend with benefits".
