Our “Vieille Prune” eau de vie is produced from a variety of plum famed in Alsace - the Quetsch. The Quetsch is a large, blue oblong plum with yellow flesh.
Tasting notes: Very pronounced flavours of the Quetsch plum but also aromas of vanilla due to the aging process carried out in oak barrels.
Serving suggestions: This "eau de vie" is perfect as a digestif.
Process: The fruit is picked and sorted by hand. After sorting, the fruit retained is then put into plastic tanks where fermentation takes place. During the fermentation, the fruit cap is punched down every day. After two distillation processes, the eau de vie is aged for between 12 to 18 months in an oak barrel.
Alcohol : 45%
