Our Blackberry Eau-De-Vie starts with a neutral spirit, we then infuse it with Marion blackberries in order to extract the voliatiles within. We distill this spirit similar to a gin by running it slow and cold through our copper pot still in order to retain the blackberry flavor and aroma. We then proof it down over a period of weeks to avoid saponification and to retain the character of the fruit.
Transparent and reflective. Shimmering, with heavy legs on the glass.
Pure Marion blackberry scent is very bold and upfront.
Sweet blackberry taste is immediate. Notes of sun ripened fruit with a bit of heat and slight cinnamon.
Becomes incredibly viscous and spreads across the pallet to the sides where it gives a blackberry cobbler and light vanilla touch.
Heavy blackberry phenolics / tannins are apparent.
Long and pronounced with lingering sweet and slightly bitter phenolics.
