Steve McCarthy was inspired to make this eau-de-vie by a spirit found in Alsace called ‘Eau de Vie de Bourgeons de Sapin’, literally ‘brandy of fir tree buds’. This is a traditional product of the region and made by macerating Scotts Pine buds and then distilling the maceration. Read more

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 06/12/2010

Appearance

Clear, lime green.

Aroma

Clean and fresh, reminiscent of walking into a room with a fragrant Christmas tree and with someone baking a sponge cake next door.

Taste

Incredibly fresh in a minty kind-a-way. It is recognisably pine-y with a hint of bitterness but not at all astringently so. Strangely it is like oak aged and concentrated crème de menthe.

Aftertaste

Perhaps not to everybody’s taste but great for cocktails.
