Distillerie Mette

Framboise Sauvage (Raspberry) Eau de Vie

  • Eau-de-vie distilled in Ribeauvillé, Haut-Rhin, in the Alsace region of France
  • Wild raspberries (rare in the Alsace) are sourced from a small grower in Romania; shipped to the distillery within 48 hours
  • Wild raspberries don’t have the necessary sugar for ideal fermentation, so instead, they are macerated for 6 days in twice-distilled grape eau-de-vie
  • The resulting eau-de-vie is distilled once on a Charente-style copper pot still
  • After distillation, the eau-de-vie is placed in stainless steel vats for 6–8 years. These vats are kept in an outdoor courtyard and the opening covered in mesh so that the spirit may blow off unwanted esters and benefit from fluctuation in temperature.
  • Reduced with spring water approximately one year before bottling
  • 45% ABV
