Mistelle is the technical term for a blend of juice and brandy, e.g. Port wine. Our apple mistelle is made from freshly pressed juice, blended with our own cider brandy, then aged in oak casks or glass carboys.
The higher alcohol content gives it a huge nose, full of intense and sweet apple aromas; on the palate these are nicely balanced by the fruity acidity of the heirloom apples. Enjoy it as an apéritif or savor it leisurely as a digestif.
Aging in glass preserves a maximum of fruitiness and acidity. This Mistelle is bright and juicy, equally suitable as an apéritif or digestif.
Our oak-aged Mistelle, by contrast, offers notes of wood and sherry in a more rounded package, while still bursting with fruity flavour.
