Made according to a family tradition that dates back 200 years, Mathilde Orange XO is a combination of two natural alcohols -- a fine brandy made by Cognac Ferrand that is aged in oak casks and a distillate of orange peel. Mathilde Orange XO has a refined and delicate nose with subtle aromas of vine blossom, orange peel and vanilla and a voluptuous, round taste. It has a powerful and richly flavored body, while the spirit gives remarkable length on the finish.
|Made in France from family recipes dating back over a century, Mathilde liqueurs are all handcrafted. The fruit used to make Mathilde comes from orchards that are treated and maintained in the most natural of fashion, according to strict rules, in order to guarantee the highest quality. Only the best and most intensely flavored fruit is selected and used immediately to express all its freshness.
The techniques for making Mathilde liqueurs differ for each fruit. Mathilde Pear, Peach, Raspberry and Black Currant are made from infusions of fruit in order to extract all their aromas and flavors.
The fruit is steeped in alcohol for several weeks and the infusion is stirred several times each day to obtain a harmonious mix of fruit and alcohol. The alcoholic strength is gradually reduced by adding pure water. The fruit is removed when the process is complete and premium cane syrup is added to balance the flavors and natural acidity of the fruit.
Mathilde liqueurs are entirely natural - no stabilizers or preservatives are ever added.
