An original aperitif !
For several years, is Château le Verdoyer working with the “Distillerie du Centre”, in Limoges, owned by Ets Nouhaud.
This "old" distillery created in 1789 (the last of the 48 present in Limoges in 1900), still active, and distilling today in alembics from the 19th century as a challenge to time and modernization!
Among its star products, they created a drink on the occasion of the 800th anniversary of the death of Richard the Lion Heart (it has indeed received the fatal arrow here in Chalus):
the “Vin de feste”.
Prepared by maceration of fresh herbs and spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cardamom, cloves, galangal, vanilla ...) in liquorish wines, it can be enjoyed chilled as an aperitif but also perfectly accompany foie gras and desserts.
Inspired by a medieval recipe "Mesnagier de Paris" (1393), it received the gold Medal at the Concours General Agricole in Paris 2010.
