Alain Milliat

French equisite fruit juices since 1997

A visionary man, thoughtful and demanding

In 1997, from the family farm in Orlienas where Alain had started planting new cherry, peach, pear and apple plots some 14 years earlier, he created six juice flavours and offered them to sixty ‘Relais et Châteaux’ sommeliers to taste; impressed, they praised his creations and encouraged him to develop his juice business.

Disruptive in his approach

Alain believes that juice should be more than a way to consume fruits, he sees them as a completely separate experience of pleasure, developed to be greater than the mere fruits that create them. Like any great composer, he designs his exquisite juices and nectars to offer aficionados a tasting full of emotion, imagining sublime colour, texture and aromatic profile.

Outstanding fruit varieties

Alain appreciates that the unique characteristics of a specific fruit variety, growing conditions, rainfall, tree cut, level of ripening and the balance between sugar and acidity all influence the aromatic profile of the final juice and nectar. This starting point has transformed into his philosophy, which has led him to faithfully reflect every single characteristic of the fruit: aroma, texture and flavour.
