France have many star products in their portfolio, but how about hidden gems? Allow us to uncover Picon Biere for you. This is an enjoyable orange bitter that when mixed with a lager or pale ale, become an aperitif in another class. Picon Biere Bitter unlocks the potential in a beer, increasing its flavour and its ABV.
This is a unique blend with essences of gentian and quinine, which is added to a base of distilled oranges. Lastly, caramel sugar and syrup are added to create the bitter. You may need to try it a couple of times to get the balance right (we recommend 4 parts beer to 1 part Picon), but once you get it right, it is easy to appreciate the heritage and flavour that Picon brings to the table.
