Tasting Presenters

Sud de France

Launched in 2006 to promote the wine, tourism and food industries of the Occitanie region, the Sud de France brand is a genuine pledge of quality that represents the values of our region: conviviality, art de vivre, gastronomy, tradition, quality, sun, and sea! With one easily recognizable label, every choice is the right one! In 2017 the regions of Languedoc Roussillon and Mid-Pyrenees merged to create the largest wine producing region in the world! With a total area of 675,000 acres (273,000 ha), Occitanie today represents 4% of the world’s vineyards and produces nearly one third of the total wine output of France.

Kronenbourg Kronenbourg

Enjoy the refreshing offerings from the world of Kronenbourg 1664, where pleasure is an art de vivre. Try Kronenbourg 1664, a lager with a noble history characterized by its fine taste, golden hues, and delicate bitterness that come from selecting the best hops, and the unique knowhow of one of the French master brewers, for over 300 years. Or sample 1664 Blanc, an original wheat beer. It is a different, fresh and fruity white beer, slightly bitter with hints of citrus and coriander spices. With its modern and elegant blue bottle, 1664 Blanc is perfectly adapted to all moments of conviviality.


Ricard© Pastis is France’s most popular and beloved spirit, often enjoyed as a refreshing aperitif among friends. Ricard© is a combination of star anise from Southern China, licorice root from Syria and an aromatic bouquet of over 22 herbs from Provence. Enjoy Ricard two ways – traditionally served with water and ice or enjoy a refreshing Pastaga Punch made with Ricard, grenadine, lime juice, green tea, and bitters.

At Président®, the art of cheese is a family passion. We began in France over 80 years ago, and today Président® is Europe’s leading cheese expert. Our products are crafted using traditional methods by the company’s master cheesemakers. Discover the delicious cheeses that brought Président® from Europe to the head of your table.
