We’re excited to announce we have taken on the UK marketing and distribution of Melonade, the artisan Provençale fruit aperitif. Part of the Ælred Spirits range, Melonade is crafted from select melons grown in the Provence town of Cavaillon and blended in an abbey in the South of France. They still use the same distillation process first developed by French monks.

Melonade is the ideal base for a laid-back, Southern French-inspired spritz; otherwise known as the ‘Melospritz’. A great alternative recipe, the Melospritz consists of Melonade, prosecco and sparkling water, garnished with a lemon or orange slice. Sweet!

Melonade has wonderful, fun branding; here to ‘bring colour to your summer’. It really is the perfect light drink for the season, only containing 12% ABV. The excellent liquid speaks for itself. Melonade has won tonnes of awards including a Double Gold at the 2019 Berlin International Spirits Competition, Gold at the Berlin International Spirits Competition 2018, Silver at the San Francisco Spirits Competition 2018 and Bronze in London International Spirits Challenge 2018-2019.

On acquiring the brand, Paul Ferguson, our Founder & Director, said:

We’re thrilled to have Melonade as a part of our portfolio. The liquid is fantastic – it’s no wonder it’s award-winning – and the branding is so attractive and colourful. We’re predicting the Melospritz is going to be the drink of the summer.”

Frederic Fichet, CEO of Eyguebelle, the owner of Melonade, said:

I’m delighted to launch this partnership with Proof Drinks for the national distribution of our Melonade. This partnership is all about the product, sharing a common passion for authentic and craft spirits.

We hope British customers will enjoy Melonade, its unique French taste directly inspired by the Sunny Provencal Lifestyle.”

Melonade will be participating at Imbibe 2019. You can visit them at Stand C112.
