Full Description

Hattingley Valley decided to hand harvest chardonnay grapes earlier than usual from the vineyards in order to retain a high level of acidity specifically for this project. The grapes were whole bunch pressed and fermented in the same way that is used for the production of its sparkling wine. Once the fermentation had finished, 7500 litres of chardonnay went to a specialist distiller who used small copper pot stills for the distillation. In order to achieve the best quality spirit, this was repeated five times, each occasion concentrated and refined the product.

Food Pairing

This Aqua Vitae is a smooth digestif to enjoy at the end of the meal and benefits from being served straight out of the freezer. It also makes an ideal white base spirit for a cocktail that focuses on English products.

Tasting Notes

On the palate, the spirit is smooth and textured with a medium weight body. Liquorice and spicy notes appear and blend well with the honey flavours that initially appear on the nose. A very smooth clean finish.
