Magnotta Distillery
Grape Barrel Aged Eau de Vie
Golden color. Aromas of coconut macaroon, caramelized nuts, and banana cream pie with a silky, fruity-yet-dry medium body and a warming, nut, mineral, fig, peach, and pepper finish. Very nicely balanced and rather high-rye bourbon-like from the barrel aging, mix accordingly.

Union Jake’s
Honey Brandy
Clear. Aromas of toasted pound cake, frosted wheat cereal, and honey buttered nut with a soft, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a whipped cream, nougat, dried pear and white pepper finish. Interesting. Try in off the wall cocktails.

Clear. Aromas of cream, apple tart, and grape skin with a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a warming plantain, pepper, pear, and mineral finish. A solid digestif.

206214
Magnotta Distillery
Grape Eau de Vie
Clear. Bold aromas of lime Pez, baby aspirin, overripe apples, chalk eraser, and reeds with a soft, dryish light body and a pear skin, cream, and mineral oil finish. A bit vague and clumsy for an eau-de-vie, more of a light grappa.
