Tasting notes: On the nose, we find the richness of the Mirabelle Plum with its roundness and the complexity inherent in alcohols made from stone fruits. On the palate, a beautiful richness is offered to us, a lot of texture and an aromatic expression tending towards stewed fruits.
Mirabelle plum brandy is an alcoholic drink made from mirabelle plum. It is obtained by fermenting fruits and then distilling the result. This drink has an alcohol content of at least 45 ° and it benefits from a regulated AOC designation. It is a specialty dating from the eighteenth century, since previously an edict prohibited the distillation of stone fruits to protect winegrowers from competition.
This Mirabelle brandy comes 100% from our own biodynamic orchards. The mirabelle plum, is a small yellow plum typical of eastern France, is extremely popular in the hot climate of Alsace.
