COTTONWOOD, Az. – Wild Tonic Founder and Master Brewer Holly Lyman and L’Auberge de Sedona Chef Franck Desplechin are pleased to announce the result of their year-long collaboration Wild Tonic Apple, Prickly Pear & Vanilla Classic Jun & 5.6% ABV Hard Jun.
Holly Lyman commented “Rarely does a collaboration lead to a product that is pure magic, however, I believe that this new release of Wild Tonic Apple, Prickly Pear & Vanilla is precisely that. It was an honor to work with Chef Franck Desplechin and make his flavor concept come to life from these locally inspired ingredients! By honoring Oak Creek Canyon & the Verde Valley’s rich legacy of apple growing, celebrating one of the desert’s signature fruits—wild-harvested prickly pears from the foothills of Red Rock country—and finishing with delicate notes of vanilla, we have created a Jun experience with a vibration all its own. Recognized across the globe for its extraordinary beauty and unparalleled experiences, L’Auberge is a resort that truly embodies all that Sedona stands for. That said, it was an honor to create a WILD flavor that is co-branded with them!”
“We are very excited at L’Auberge de Sedona to offer the most innovative product of the year with our very own exclusive label,” announced Franck Desplechin. Wild Tonic Apple, Prickly Pear & Vanilla is the result of a world-class destination resort like L’Auberge de Sedona collaborating with the most amazing Kombucha makers in the United States, Wild Tonic . Innovation, creativity, many months of hard work, then tasting, tasting and tasting again resulted in the perfect synergy between two passionate individuals, the extraordinary Holly Lyman and myself. With Apple, Prickly Pear & Vanilla, you have this natural fermented tea made with sustainably-sourced honey and infused with local apples, local prickly pear, perfumed by the most subtle hint of vanilla. Not only is the taste is sublime, so too is the pour, it’s a veritable feast for the eyes!
