This Festive Season the Huon Valley provides a bundle of treats for the grown-ups – to send you calmly and comfortably into a relaxing summer.
We couldn’t decide between Charles Oates’ elegant aged apple brandy and their dense rich slightly sweet pommeau so we persuaded Thomas, the delightful head distiller, to let us have both. Then we asked Niccola to imagine sitting on a verandah at sunset, glass of dark apple spirit by her side and imagine a biscuit. And she imagined dipping a few crunchy hazelnut biscotti into pommeau for a rich, adult after dinner treat. And then, because it’s Christmas, we figured we should throw in some ginger biscuits and a malted brandy sauce to pour over ice cream and Christmas pudding. We’ve only made enough for sixty, so if you want it, jump in quick!
This 200ml bottle of Apple Brandy is aged in ex-fortified wine barrels to produce elegant rich warm apple, sweet caramel and fruit cake aromatics. The 200ml Pommeau liquor is aged for over a year in small apple brandy casks filled with heirloom apple varieties soaking in apple spirit made by double-distilling cider. It brings baked fruit and spices to mind, balanced with firm tannins and cask influence.
Orders close on Sunday 5 December and will be posted the next day.
