Sardines Millésimées 2021 in a very limited series
La Perle des Dieux has teamed up with the French Navy to create a whole new 2021 vintage.
The delicious fish in this gem come from sustainable fisheries that respect fish stocks and the ocean.
Axel De Lafforest's bluish shimmering illustrations are intended to pay homage to the men and women who navigate the seas every day.
This vintage offers melt-in-the-mouth sardines in an extra virgin olive oil that will captivate your senses and take you to the open sea.
Do you hear the call of the sea and adventure?
The little extra?
La Perle des Dieux is committed to donating €0.50 from each pack sold to an organization committed to protecting marine biodiversity. This initiative is a testament to the values Justine Sage and the cannery share: a strong desire to protect the ocean.
The design of this tin comes from the illustrator Axel de Lafforest
Even the ancient Romans valued sardines and ate them salted, marinated or smoked. To this day, the sardine is and will remain a high-quality product if the quality and production methods are right. Thanks to their short lifespan, they have absorbed very few pollutants from the sea and have a high proportion of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and trace elements. 100g of sardines (about 8 fish) contain 40% of the recommended daily dose of calcium and 100% of the vitamin D necessary to absorb the trace elements. In order for the human body to be able to absorb all of these valuable nutrients, it is essential that the sardine is preserved in high-quality olive oil, because only this oil allows the human body to break it down and metabolize it.
For the sake of enjoyment, however, you should definitely not do without the many other great creations from the incomparably rich range of flavors of canned sardines: sardines in a fruity sauce, in white wine, in butter, with water and lemon... try it out!
The sardine is still the linchpin of many port cities in Brittany, but also in Spain and Portugal. Fortunately, however, it is not in danger of extinction and can be enjoyed without regret.
