Eaux de Vie de Vieille Prune , 45%, Aged Plum Eau de Vie

Many varieties of plum belong to the plum family.
Briottet’s Aged Plum Eau de Vie (45% ABV) is a unique drink, due to the blend of eaux de vie used to make it, which are produced using several varieties of plums.
Obtained after fermentation and then distillation processes, our plum eau de vie is then aged. It is delicately dark, its mouth is well-balanced due to the combination of different varieties of plum, and it is enhanced by subtle woody notes.

Tasting

To be savoured at the end of a meal.

Alcool pour Fruits , 40%

L'Alcool pour Fruits Briottet enables you -- due to its purity and its neutrality -- to prepare, in summer, great jars of fruit conserved in alcohol, without damaging or adulterating the taste of plums, cherries, etc. (you need to cut off two-thirds of cherry stems), depending on your tastes and recipes.

Armagnac VS , 40%

Our Armagnac VS has the appellation "Bas Armagnac", since is it produced in the western part of the Gers department (county). It is made using the Colombard, Ugni Blanc and Folle Blanche grape varieties. Distillation is carried out using traditional armagnac stills, which do not produce huge quantities but play a vital role in obtaining the finesse of this armagnac.
Our Armagnac VS (for "Very Special") is aged for three years in oak barrels.
Tasting notes: A pale yellow armagnac, glistening and crystalline. Its nose is slightly oaky, with a hint of vanilla.
In the mouth, the first impression is of a frank and sinewy armagnac. It is well-balanced, you know that you are drinking a high-alcohol armagnac but the alcohol is not aggressive, and gives way to notes of vanilla, fresh grapes and fresh apples.
The "fresh fruit" finish is rather long.

Calvados VS , 40%, "Pays d'Auge" AOC

Over 800 varieties of apple are grown in Normandy. The choice of apple variety, the production method and finally the ageing process will determine the quality of a Calvados apple brandy.
Our AOC Calvados VS from the "Pays d'Auge" is the result of a shrewd blend of bitter apple varieties such as the "Frequin Rouge", of sweet ones such as the "Douce Coëtligné", of acidulous ones such as "La Petite Jaune", of sharp-tasting ones like "La Pigeonnet", and of bittersweet ones such as the "Kermerrien".
The specificity of our "Pays d'Auge" AOC -- apart from the specific geographical area in terms of the provenance of the apples -- is that the cider is distilled twice in stills called à repasse stills in French (repasser means to go through again).
Our Calvados VS (for "Very Special") will spend two years in oak barrels made from oak from forests in the Limousin department.

Our Calvados VS can be drunk as an after-dinner drink, straight, or as part of a trou normand (which is apple sorbet with Calvados poured over it, used to refresh the appetite during the course of a long meal featuring many courses). It would also be perfect for use in the kitchen, to make chicken flambé, for example.

Distillation following fermentation of pears selected when fully ripe enables all of the aromatic intensity to be extracted from the fruit.
The secret regarding how to get the pear inside the small carafe is to put the small carafe on the pear tree so that the pear grows inside it. Briottet’s Williams Pear Eau de Vie is then added to the small carafe.
A bottle which will always make an impression on people!

Mêlé Cassis , 24%

A 180th anniversary product made with a mix of two indispensable products of our region: Crème de Cassis de Dijon and Marc de Bourgogne.  For our Crème de Cassis 20% we use the most prestigious blackcurrant variety: the Noir de Bourgogne variety. The berries we use are harvested exclusively in the Côte d'Or department in Burgundy. The blackcurrant berries are macerated in a water and alcohol solution for about 10 weeks, in order that all of their flavors are extracted from them. The alcohol-containing juice thus obtained is called “infusion”. This infusion is the basic ingredient which goes into crème de cassis, to which we add white sugar.  Our Très Vieux Marc de Bourgogne AOC is the result of distillation of brandies made from grape marc from the prestigious Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune wine-growing areas. In order to produce a very special Burgundian marc brandy, we age it for more than 10 years in oak barrels with capacities of 228 litres (Burgundy barrels) in our old cellar. Mêlé Cassis Briottet is the perfect mix between roundness of cassis and the real taste of Terroir of Marc de Bourgogne. It’s a real Burgundian after-dinner drink. Mêlé Cassis appeared in the 1870’s and was popular in the 19th century but finally disappeared on Burgundian tables. Vincent and Claire Briottet wanted to honor their great grand-parents who enjoyed this “digestif” at the end of a meal and to allow people to rediscover this typical Burgundian product.

Prunelle de Bourgogne , 40%, Burgundy Sloe Liqueur

Sloes are small fruit with stones which are black tinged with blue and come from sloe shrubs (which are also known as blackthorn), and are found in hedgerows exposed to the sun. Even though they are ripe in September, they are only picked after the first frost of winter, which makes them softer and less bitter. To produce Briottet's Sloe Liqueur, what are in fact used are the sloe's stones, with the skin and flesh removed. The stones are then dried and are macerated in extra-fine alcohol for almost a year. The powerful and authentic taste which is produced by using the stones is then tempered through the careful addition of not too much but not too little sugar. Sloe Liqueur is perfect as an after-dinner drink.
