F. Meyer Quetsch Eau-de-Vie
F. Meyer // Alsace, France
The F. Meyer distillery was founded in Hohwarth in the Alsace region of France in 1958, and produces eau de vie. Its spirits are double-distilled in copper pot-stills and then rested in steel tanks for two to five years before bottling. F. Meyer Quetsch is made from sweet red plums grown in Alsace.
Eau-de-VieMost often referring to clear, unaged brandy distilled from wine from any type of fruit. Some styles are macerated with skins after distillation which provide color.
"This is another fantastically fragrant eau de vie from F. Meyer, with an aroma that reminds one immediately of breaking into the skin of a ripe plum. It boasts a full palate of fruit, braced by brightness and a touch of heat, and a long, lingering finish that makes refilling one's glass hard to resist."
