Osocalis Brandy Alambic XO

Osocalis Brandy Alambic XO 750ml        
Sku: 1597446

1 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.

 Wine Enthusiast 93 points (Nov 2011)
From a small family-run distillery, this blend of “older” California brandies has a vibrant golden-orange color and a sweet apples-and-honey note. On the palate, creamy citrus flavors finish big and rich, with caramel, ginger and cinnamon notes, and a soft texture. Pair with a fruit dessert, like apple pie with vanilla ice cream. Come to think of it, this brandy would be dynamite simply poured over ice cream, too.
