Opaque rose colour, fresh-cut ginger, lemon and grapefruit on the nose. Initial taste of sweet guarana and some appley flavours supported by warming cognac and vanilla finished off with zesty ginger. Very refreshing.
Muddle 1/2 a lime ( cut into chunks) and a tsp sugar in the bottom of an old fashioned tumbler. Add 30mls Cachaca, 30mls Paul Giraud 3G and churned with crushed ice. Crown with crushed ice.
Paul Giraud Cognac is an old family farm located in Bouteville, a small village in the heart of Grande Champagne, since at least 1635. A family stock of old Eaux-de-vie can offer fans a complete range.
They produce 100% Grande Champagne single vintage cognac and 100% single year, except for Heritage and Noblesse that are blends. The current area of the vineyard is 42 hectares, all planted in Ugni-blanc and located in the town of Bouteville, in the heart of the Grande Champagne, on chalky grounds of the Campanian and Santonien limestones.
For a very long time, they have been practising a reasoned and environmentally friendly culture. Thus, for more than 30 years, manures have been made with organic fertilisers associated with soil ploughing. In addition, a large part of the vineyard is still harvested by hand, a practice that is becoming increasingly rare in the Charentes (only four or five estates still practice it).
