Why does it deserve our mention? Alain Milliat has achieved something that may seem easy, but truly is complicated and sophisticated. To be able to put a selection of the best fruits, in their optimum state of ripeness, so that they barely lose texture, flavor and color, in a beautiful glass bottle.  He spoke to us about his determination to recreate the sensation of fresh fruit in times like ours where most juices and nectars aren’t at all like fresh fruit. Colombian mango nectar or apple juice are two very good examples of this delicious gastronomic adventure.  Nectar or juice? Well, it depends on when you drink it: nectar is better for breakfast and afternoon snacks, is denser and has more pulp, and the juice, lighter and more refreshing, is best before or with meals.  From Colombia, for example, one of the world’s most important producers of mango, he imports an older variety of mango called Magdalena River, which is still cultivated and which grows naturally on the coasts of the Caribbean Ocean and which he works with when it is already ripe.  Without a doubt, Alain Milliat is a breath of fresh air in the boring world of packaged fruit juices and nectars.
How should you cook or eat it? You can have the juice as an aperitif or with a meal, and the nectar can be breakfast or an afternoon snack.  Both can be used in your favorite cocktails.
What wine should you drink with it? It’s better on its own. 
How should you keep it? In a cool, dry place and, once open, in the refrigerator for up to three days.
