The Very Special Old Pale French Grape brandy is still made to a 196 year old recipe using at least 20 French barrel-aged eaux-de-vie (distilled wines) sourced from the three premier wine regions of Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne. VSOP is smooth and velvety to taste with hints of almonds and walnut, and a long finish of candied fruits and ginger.
