Tasting Notes

Originating in Asia, the Morello variety has expanded to include many different breeds with each one accentuating different aspects of this classic sweet and sour fruit. For thir batch of Rochelt the Köröser, Kelleries and Gorsem varieties cultivated in western Styria are used. The harvest is one of the most laborious of all Rochelt brandies as only fruit at optimal ripeness is acceptable requiring the hand harvesters to take many passes through the orchards, a process that often times can take up to three weeks. The fruit is sorted by hand and very carefully mashed without breaking the pits. Notes include dried roses, saffron, paprika, exotic spices, cherry wood, black preserved cherries, tobacco, molasses and a deep raw, wild sanguine core. Unbelievably good.

Staff Pick Notes

There's this thing people do where they choose gifts based on what the recipient already knows and likes. Certainty. It's outrageous! Good gifts do not reinforce someone's ego, and getting your whoever Macallan 18 is tantamount to socks and long underwear for Christmas. If you want to be remembered, if you really want to show you care, consider a Rochelt brandy. This is Real Luxury you can appreciate from start to finish. The vessel is so beautiful and nice to hold, and even the act of lifting the weighty etched cap to reveal the elegant spout underneath is a pleasure. The morello cherry fills your nose with spicy perfume and unfolds dramatically on the palate. A savory, mysterious finish is at one point cinnamon candy, at another nuts and salt, and goes on and on. And you? Perhaps you're due for something new as well.
