Merlet Eau de Vigne is a true blast from the past, being a throwback to the days when un-aged eaux-de-vie was enjoyed as a drink in its own right. The popularity of Cognac and Armagnac have slowly edged out such a spirit - and the family Merlet decided it was time to bring back this age old tradition.
A clear spirit, this is a blend of a combination of eaux-de-vies from the Merlet family cellar. Most of them are from Ugni Blanc and Colombard grapes. The resulting tipple is both fruity and aromatic.
Enjoy it neat as a digestif, on the rocks, or in a cocktail.

Tasting review by Merlet Cognac:
Nose: Delicate, floral (violet, white flowers) and fruity (Mirabelle, pear).
Palate: Round, light, with a fine length. No sweetness, well-balanced with prevailing flavours of fruit.
With a traceable history dating back to 1850, the Merlet family have continued to produce cognac, alongside a continually growing range of other products, to the current day. Headed today by Gilles Merlet, his sons Pierre and Luc joined the business a few years back, bringing with them a new generation of enthusiasm and direction. Although the house Distillerie Merlet & Fils originally produced eaux-de-vie for some of the most prestigious cognac houses in the world of cognac, they are now famous in their own right, not only for their quality cognacs, but for their innovative range of other products that sell around the globe.
