Laurent Cazottes Tomatoes Tomato Liqueur 375ml
Tomato?! Mai oui, Laurent Cazottes is one of the holy trinity of European obsessive small distillers (along with Austria's Reisetbauer and Italy's Capovilla) who make fascinating delicious spirits. The taste is a medley of fresh tomatoes, cantaloupe, raisins, mulberries, dates, grass and just plain garden. A must try. Laurent has 72 varieties planted and uses all of them for this one-of-a-kind liqueur. After the fruit is fully ripe, he picks them all by hand, de-stems them by hand, quarters them and removes the seeds by hand and then macerates the fruit in freshly distilled organic Folle Noire eau de vie for 10 months. Next, this pomace is pressed and re-distilled. The tomato distillate is then added back to the original Folle Noire/tomato infusion and left to marry to create the final liqueur. A crazy amount of work to a delicious end!
