Osocalis Distillery Brandy XO Alambic

Osocalis Distillery Brandy XO Alambic 750ml     
Sku: 1597446

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Founded in the early 1990’s, Osocalis is a small, artisanal distillery located in Soquel, California. They use a small 100 gallon antique alambic Charentais still, imported from Cognac, to produce brandies using grapes and apples from the cooler coastal regions of California. They have the elegance and finesse of Old World brandies with the fruit intensity and body of California wines. Highly recommended by Paul Pacult, one of the world’s most respected spirits critics.

Tasting notes
While by old world standards it’s still young, the XO shows the rich development of Rancio with hints of orange peel, dried apricots, walnuts, cacao and a rich leatheriness. Creamy citrus flavors finish big and rich, with caramel, ginger and cinnamon notes, and a soft texture.
