Suggestions for a Gourmet Valentine’s Day: The aperitif
It would be very difficult to miss the aperitif, since it will light up your evening, so here are some suggestions for a gourmet Valentine’s Day to get away.
The Limited-Edition Sweetheart Box from Oysters & Caviar

Composed of 24 oysters (2 varieties of Sweet Oyster and Co. products) and Siberian caviar from Antonius Caviar, this set will satisfy you and whet your appetite. Don’t hesitate to upgrade your box with products such as Rougié foie gras or products from the Fromagerie de l’Isle for the perfect starter.

Suggestions for a Gourmet Valentine’s Day: To Drink
Suggestions for a gourmet Valentine’s Day must necessarily include delicious liquids, here are a few. The wines are absent from this list as we suggest you take them from your favorite restaurateurs to add to the pleasure of the perfect pairing.
The Bollinger Rosé champagne
Champagne is still a must with the caviar of the box mentioned above. We go with the Bollinger Rosé, in several forms: La Grande Année and the Bollinger Brut, two beautiful products that are favorites of James Bond. Quite a gentleman, but also perfect for madam. Want to know more, take a look at our article on Bollinger.
Rosemont Gin Rose de Montréal
You are more cocktails than champagne, no problem, this beautiful product of La Distillerie de Montréal will please you. It is composed of aromas of juniper berries, rhubarb, cranberry and karkadé hibiscus. Infused cranberries and hibiscus lightly colour the gin to make a reminder with the pink rhubarb.
Madison Park Pink Gin
Add this artisanal gin distilled in small batches to your orgasmic appetizers. It is a delicate floral expression, fresh and light. With its sweet and peppery aromas of juniper, hints of Jamaican pepper and elderflower, it will certainly be a gin and tonic delight. It is dry and delicate and reveals in the mouth flavors of juniper berries, light floral notes and a medium spicy finish. A total success.
Noroi Petits Fruits
With a much sweeter palate, the Noroi Petits Fruits that our collaborator Jean-Daniel Perron has analysed, is another superb alternative for Valentine’s Day.
Fever-Tree Aromatic Tonic Water
Combining the sweet bitterness of South American angustura with aromatic plant extracts such as cardamom, Jamaican pepper and ginger, Fever Tree has created a delicious, unique tonic water. Designed to showcase robust, strong juniper gins, this aromatic tonic can be enjoyed in a pink gin and tonic or as is, as a refined soft drink.
