Capreolus Raspberry Eau de Vie 2021
Edition of only 600 bottles
Mouth filling raspberries, flowers, rose geranium, turkish delight, hints of nuts, mint and spice with a beautiful sweetness.
Beneath the ancient spine of the Malvern hills lies a landscape ideal for the cultivation of our beautifully aromatic raspberries.
Carefully tended, each berry is hand selected and delivered to the distillery in perfect condition. Their fragility means that we have to work quickly to grade and clean each berry. Working only from the fruit’s natural sugar we slowly ferment them in small vats to ensure the preservation of their enormous vitality. Taking around 30kg fruit to produce each litre, the reward for this laborious work becomes evident in both the slow distillation and long maturation.
Breathe in and a huge, intoxicating, aroma, of perfectly ripe raspberries envelops you. Extremely floral, intense high notes and softer deeper notes interplay with nuts, lemon and rose. On the palate, an explosion of flavour. Mouth filling raspberries, more flowers, rose geranium, turkish delight, hints of nuts, mint and spice with a beautiful sweetness. A never ending finish.
We met Barney in the Spring of 2022 in the UK and were blown away by what he was doing with his Eaux de Vie and gin, we knew we had to carry it. Luxurious and incredibly complex, showcasing botanicals and flavour without compromise.
