Mette Eau de Vie de Nefle (Medlar Fruit Spirit) 45% 350ml
Refined and subtle nose with aromas of vanilla, wood, citrus, garrigue, pine tree. The palate reveals a smoothness with notes of resin, smoky, spicy and lemony. Beautiful length, a classy spirit with elegant aromas.
It all starts with the choice of fruits, flowers and spices. Contrary to common belief, spoiled fruits are not used in the distillery. Mette accepts only the best-quality fruits and holds to a high standard in produce. Timing is of utmost importance. Naturally sweet fruits ferment in for around 6 to 8 weeks. Other berries, flowers and spices are put to maceration in a neutral eau-de-vie made of wine and therefore three dimensional rather than flat. And ageing in stainless steel vats up to 10 years is of outmost importance. The exotic components are amazing discoveries: Acacia, Asperule (from which the first aspirin was obtained), Medlar, Greengage Plum, etc.
