Capreolus Chestnut Barrel Aged Apple Eau de Vie (37.5cl)
Region: Cotswolds, Gloucestershire
Barney Wilczak is a magician, turning fruit and produce from his native Gloucestershire into silky smooth eaux de vie. Each has a different character but every one he makes captures the delicate flavour of the fruit, while bringing out yet more complex flavours in the distillery.
The gosimer expression of the apple is balanced by a gently cognac-like warmth. Fresh flesh of juice filled apples, sweetness balanced with long tannins and with further hints of tobacco, pastry and smoke.
