Paragon, a new generation of cordials.
As a source of inspiration, we must never stop being surprised and amazed by Nature’s ingenuity. That is why MONIN launched Paragon, a range of single botanic cordials created for bartenders, in collaboration with Alex Kratena, internationally renowned bartender and P(OUR) co-founder.
Paragon is created as a series of “botanical chapters” which will become an encyclopedic collection of ingredients for bartenders. The first chapter focuses on pepper and pepper berries: Paragon’s teams explored every continent and encountered remote populations cultivating species for generations to source original varieties with distinctive flavours.
The goal? To protect and promote rare botanical varieties, highlighting unknown aromatic essences and making them available for those who appreciate exceptional flavours for use in cocktails.
The result is the Pepper Collection, comprising three variants: White Penja Pepper from Cameroon; Ru Berry from Ethiopia; and Timur Berry from Nepal.
These premium botanical cordials give access to nature’s unexplored flavours, through a new medium that elevates and transforms drinks creations, from the simplest (just add soda) to the most sophisticated.
