Basics

Accessible spirits: easy to drink, good value – but high quality.

  • Amaretto Extraction of apricot pits in wine spirit

    There’s a beautiful little apricot tree greeting you at the gate of the distillery. We eat the fruit and keep the pits, dry them and macerate them in wine spirit. This is how the first AdB Amaretto is born.
    Since we don’t like sugar, we add just a couple of stevia leaves to make it a little sweeter than usual. So this Amaretto is not a liqueur loaded with sugar, but lightand fresh, strongly expressing the taste of the apricot pit.

    The nose reminds of hyacinth and marzipan, of course. The later is well present in the pallate, too, where it is accompanied by notes of roasted peanuts, overripe melon, kaki, medlar and a hint of clove. The colour is a light transparent yellow.

  • Cerise Maceration of Cherries in Grape Marc Spirit

    details

    • wild harvest of different varieties of cherries on abandoned orchards in the Orb valley
    • grape pomace brandy
    • approximately 6 months of maceration with pits
    • «Ceci n’est pas un Guignolet!» (EU-regulation prohibits the use of the term “Guignolet” for craft distillates).

    tasting notes

    • very fruity with strong cherry taste
    • hints of marzipan and almond
    • reminds of an old barrel aged brandy, sweet Sherry or Porto
    • mild and sweet like a dessert wine (and without added sugar!)

    Pairing

    • vanilla desserts
    • chocolate cake
    • soft strong cheese like Camembert or Brie
    • for cocktails of course! We like it with a mild citrusy tonic or craft lemonade.

  • Marc de Grenache Marc of Grenache grapes

    A typical distilled marc. You will feel a strong presence of the Grenache grapes’ frutiy character. Amateurs of Gewurztraminer will apreciate Le Marc (de Grenache). 50cl [ 40% Vol

  • Gn Distillation of fresh juniper berries on wine spirit

    Freshly harvested juniper berries from our region macerated and re-distilled in wine spirit. This batch is very foresty: notes of moss, pine needles, soil, resin and mushroom make it a little perculiar – great for amateurs of dry Gins.
    It goes well with an olive or a dry tonic with cucumber, but won’t match with sweet or citrus-focused tonics.
    «Ceci n’est pas un Gin!» The EU Spirits Regulation prohibits the use of the term Gin for craft distillates.
