Press release – 3rd July 2024

A collaboration of taste: Billecart-Salmon Sélection unveils its exclusive distribution partnership with Jukes.  

Launched in early 2020 in the U.K. by internationally acclaimed wine writer Matthew Jukes, Jukes is a unique category of sophisticated alcohol-free drinks. Using Matthew’s olfactory and sensory knowledge, the Jukes drinks offer complex and aromatic characters, allowing a truly rewarding experience with 0.0% alcohol. Handmade in London from 100% natural ingredients and currently undergoing official organic certification, each drink is blended with the highest quality natural fruit, vegetables, herbs, spices, flowers, and organic apple cider vinegar. Their low sugar and calorie content makes them a refined and responsible alternative. Multi-award-winning, including Best Drinks Range at the 2024 World Alcohol-Free Awards, Jukes has established itself as a pioneer in the alcohol-free sector.
When Matthew Jukes presented his project to Mathieu Roland-Billecart, CEO and 7e generation, and to Alexandre Bader, Managing Director of Billecart-Salmon, this innovative, delicious range of drinks designed for gastronomy immediately resonated with the philosophy of the Maison Billecart-Salmon. Their shared commitment to excellence and responsibility made their collaboration seamless. By joining forces, they are combining their strengths. Billecart-Salmon Sélection, the distribution arm of Billecart-Salmon Champagne is now supporting the development of the London-based brand in France and internationally. The Jukes range is available in exceptional Parisian venues such as Hôtel de Crillon, Le Meurice, Park Hyatt, and Michelin-starred restaurants such as L’Arôme, L’Arpège, Fouquet’s, Pavillon Ledoyen, Pré Catelan, and La Réserve. Jukes can also be enjoyed at home, thanks to Kaviari boutiques throughout France and wine shops such as Vino Sapiens.
