A few facts and figures about this Kirsch from the AOC of Fougerolles (Haute-Saône / Bourgogne region - Franche-Comté):

Kirsch is a cherry eau-de-vie. In May 2010, after several long years of procedures, the Fougerolles Kirsch finally obtained the label of AOC: “Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée”, or Protected Designation of Origin. This is the recognition of a product that is firmly rooted in the land of the Fougerolles region.

The characteristics of the terrain make it an excellent place for growing cherry trees.
The cultivation of these cherry trees and their distillation is an important activity for the area.
Fougerolles Kirsch is only the 4th eau-de-vie or brandy in France to receive the AOC label, after Cognac, Calvados and Armagnac.

A Kirsch Eau-de-Vie that is typical of Fougerolles, with light almond notes and a beautiful finish on the palate.
