Half-Bottle of Laurent Cazottes Wild Quince Liq.

Item # 28237 375mL

Arguably one of the most laboriously produced products available on the market, this liqueur/sweet wine can't be overlooked. The usage of chemical-free fruit that is harvested at its peak of perfection, and then broken down by hand to be fermented, distilled, and macerated, results in nothing short of a revelation. Incredible aromas and flavors that could not be more pure are showcased here.

Staff Pick Notes

Distiller Laurent Cazottes calls it a liqueur, but this otherworldly beverage defies easy categorization. Cazottes begins by hand-harvesting wild quince on his family farm in the southwest of France, and, in a nearly monomaniacal quest for the most concentrated essence possible, manually destems and deseeds every piece, leaving only flesh and skin. The quince is then macerated in both quince brandy and grape eau-de-vie, lightly “cooking” it for a subtle sweetness before the two infusions are blended for bottling. That light sweetness is the perfect foil for the uniquely feral, beeswaxy, Christmas-spice character of the liqueur. A truly artisanal product in a world where that term has been debased, it is the perfect mind-expanding after-dinner sipper for autumn, especially for those turned off by more lusciously sweet potions.
