ABOUT

Eau-de-vie is where vodka meets brandy. House of Melo is a London-based distiller that has conceived the world’s first eau-de-vie made from pineapple and wildflower honey. The brainchild of Othem Lindsay-Hall, a Chemistry graduate from the University of Greenwich, he sought to offer something new and exciting to the spirits industry. With Melo he wanted to create a drink that could be enjoyed at any moment – as an aperitif at a fine dining restaurant or as a shot at the club on a night out. Melo makes the best by matching the skill of British spirits craftsmanship with unique and varied flavours.

VISION

Our first creation, is the world’s first spirit distilled from honey and pineapple. This is an ‘eau de vie’ or a ‘clear brandy’ if you prefer to call it that. With the finest sourced pineapples and carefully chosen wildflower honeys from around the world, this truly makes for a brand new taste experience. The first of its kind in the spirits world.

EAU-DE-VIE

Eau-de-vie. Water of life. The name has its origins in an elixir of boiled fermented cherries that a 17th century Alsatian monk conjured up. But what was invented as a medicine to save lives would thereafter take on a lighter character; that of a young after-dinner digestive with a heady aroma and an explosive taste. Produced by the fermentation of fruit followed by double distillation, eau-de-vie is a colorless brandy that comes in a staggering variety. Whatever the fruit, there’s a high chance that someone somewhere has tried to distill an eau-de-vie with it. Seeking to capture the essence of a fruit in its ripeness, eaux-de-vie are not aged in wooden casks but rather bottled straight away so as to preserve the flavor in its full potency. In an industry dominated by rapper-owned premium vodkas, eaux-de-vie only comprise a niche in the market. But where vodka lacks in flavor, eaux-de-vie makes up a hundred-fold.
