$69/bottle – SOLD OUT
We just received a handful of Wild Quince, Citron, and Folle Noire sweet liqueurs from the tiny production distillery run by rock star distiller Laurent Cazottes. He is France’s leading producer of artisan liqueurs and eau-de-vie. Whether it’s grapes, greengage plums, quinces or pears, each fruit is painstakingly pampered by hand. Cazottes retains only the “noble” parts of the fruit – the skin and flesh; stalks, calyxes, pips, stones or scabs are taken out manually to keep the pure concentration and aroma of the fruit intact. Today, Michel Bras (of Michelin three star Restaurant Bras) orders his citron liqueur exclusively from him and the national forests office of France has assigned to him personally the wild blueberries from Mont Lozère.
