Kirsch de Merises Nusbaumer 25 years old, 45% - Eau de Vie d'Exception
The Exception range is the pinnacle of Nusbaumer's artisanal know-how. This Eau-de-Vie is crafted from wild cherries. This elegant red tree grows naturally in wilderness and produces small black cherries, usually less sweet than traditional cherries, and with a firm and thick skin.
After 5 weeks of natural fermentation, the seeds are removed and the fruits distilled in traditional small copper stills. This eau-de-vie is then aged in stainless steel casks for 25 years in order to obtain this unique roundness and refinement. At the end of this long ageing process, the alcohol content is reduced to 45% using water from their own mountain spring water. This spring water, running through purple shale rock, is characterized by its extreme purity which gives it its singular strength.
