The Penja Nº13, a cocktail by Raphaël Duron with Paragon Cordial by Monin

The exceptional alliance between Monin and expert mixologist Alex Kratena, bring a range of cordials born from an adventure. Find the recipe from Raphaël Duron here.

Paragon is a unique range of cordial liqueurs created by Monin in collaboration with Alex Kratena. These liqueurs are the result of an experimental journey in the search for little known endemic botanical species from the four corners of the world. MONIN now offers these exceptional flavors to cocktail experts.

The project team has traveled to all continents to meet the communities, their culture and their ancestral customs in order to unearth these rare ingredients.

Three varieties make up this first collection dedicated to peppers and berries, presented in a 48.5 cl bottle: the white pepper from Cameroon, the Rue Bay from Ethiopia and the Timur Bay from Nepal.

We bring you a cocktail recipe by Raphaël Duron, based on the exclusive White Penja Pepper cordial.
