Classic French aperitif. Waves of honeyed tropical fruit and glace cherries with smashed sauvignon grapes and floral notes. Starts out sweet and moves into a dry zesty almost zingy finish.
Based on a recipe that dates back to the 15th century, Tuaca is a brandy-based liqueur which brings together a number of brandies, a secret blend of fruits and spices and just a little sugar to blend it all together in harmony. On the nose is a spicy citrus tang which entices you to drink and when you do you’ll enjoy a surprisingly light and oily mouthfeel, sweet with a little dry spiciness and cinnamon, nutmeg and bitter orange leading the taste profile. It settles into a mellower, sweeter warmth, just the ticket after a filling meal.
Montifaud Pineau is a rare and much underappreciated aperitif produced in the Cognac region of France. The flavour is a combination of the freshest grape juice, from harvested Colombard grapes and effortlessly smooth cognac, delivering a flavour which is rich and of exceptional quality. The grape notes come through beautifully amongst the heat of the alcohol and it ends on an enjoyably light and sweet note.
