Brilliant clear color. Fruity, floral aromas of sweet plantain, ripe cantaloupe, iris, aniseed, sandalwood, and grapefruit with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity light body and a warming, captivating, medium-long violet, orange blossom, sour cherry preserve, eucalyptus, and kumquat finish. A vivacious and smooth clear brandy that seems a cousin to South America’s famous eau de vies.

Clear brandy is a category that encompasses unaged grape brandies that do not fit in well-known classifications such as eau-de-vie, pisco, or slivovitz. These are often regional specialties like Rakia or Singani with a fruity character that is not diluted by wood aging. Most of these are meant for cocktails, like Pisco Sours, but the finest can be served neat.
