Silver Medal - San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2010Produced without the traditional permitted additives (caramel, sugar and oak extract), Natur & Eleganse XO is a blend of 60% Fin Bois Cognac, 25% Grande Champagne Cognac and 15% Petite Champagne Cognac. Elegant and complex, it has been aged in Limousin oak casks for over 10 years and offers layers of mellow fruit flavors complemented by light floral notes and a hint of vanilla on the dry finish.
This pure, smooth grappa is distilled from grape skins from ancient Greek varietals that were brought to southern Italy centuries ago. Sweet and aromatic, with soft notes of fruit and spice, this is an excellent representation of Calabrian grappa, historically known as Magna Grecia.
Distilled from 100% Prosecco di Conegliano, the grape used for sparkling Prosecco, Carpene Malvoti Grappa Bianca retains the unique character of the fruit in its delicate, rich aromatics and elegant palate.
Chateau de Laubade "Signature" Bas Armagnac is the result of combining the best Ugni-Blanc and Folle Blanche eau-de-vie, then maturing the blend in oak casks from Gascony. Bold, elegant aromas of ripe fruit and orange blossom lead to a smooth, medium-bodied palate brimming with notes of pear, honey, orange blossom, vanilla and oak.
Distilled from single-grape eau-de-vie and crafted in small batches, Chateau de Laubade Blanche is a refined spirit with delicate flavors of honeysuckle, pear, and peach. This fascinating spirit is bottled without barrel aging, so every concentrated aroma and flavor results from masterful fermentation and distillation. A treat for brandy and vodka enthusiasts alike.
Laubade is renowned for producing the finest Armagnacs. Distilled from Baco, Colombard, Ugni Blanc and Folle Blanche wines, the spirit is then aged at least five years in Gascony oak until bottling.
Five Stars - F. Paul Pacult's Kindred SpiritsThough produced in Oregon, Clear Creek "Eau de Vie de Pomme" Apple Brandy is comparable to a fine Calvados. Distiller Stephen McCarthy starts with Golden Delicious apples, and then in keeping with Normandy tradition, ages the spirit in limousin oak Cognac barrels for at least eight years. The spirit retains the fresh, bright character of the apple, but develops maturity and complexity from the oak. This is a complex, entrancing spirit that will please the Calvados and Cognac enthusiast alike.
