Additional information: There’s a beautifull little apricot tree greeting you when you enter the distillery. We keep the pits, dry them and macerate them in wine spirit.
Since we don’t like sugar, we add just a couple of stevia leaves to make it a little sweeter than usual. So this Amaretto is not a liqueur loaded with sugar, but lightand fresh, strongly expressing the taste of the apricot pit.
The nose reminds of hyacinth and marzipan, of course. The later is well present in the pallate, too, where it is accompanied by notes of roasted peanuts, overripe melon, kaki, medlar and a hint of clove. The colour is a light transparent yellow.
Faugères, France We’re a craft distillery of natural spirits, located in the south of France, working with respect for nature and creating high quality spirits. We distill on demand for professionals and amateurs, as well as create our own spirits, among others Fine Faugères, the brandy traditional to our place. All our spirits are handmade in local, natural and vegan production. Distilling to us means to be inspired by the generations that used the alambics before us, to take time with our organic ingredients in order to extract their “spirit”, as say the alchemists.
We are one of the initiators of the «Manifeste de la Gnôle Naturelle» (Natural Booze Manifesto) www.gnolenaturelle.eu / www. naturalbooze.eu
