Riding With The King - Brandy Finished in Red Wine Barrels
Brandy Finished In Red Wine Barrels.
Copper Pot-Distilled. Non-Chill Filtered. No Added Boisé (Oak Flavor Or Infusion). No Added Caramel Color
There’s always the aspiration to make something beautiful, something if not precious, then memorable. Something worthy of Kings & Queens and more egalitarian – all of us y’all. We want our American spirit to soar, and fly.
The first American wine Lesley and I fell in love with was King Estate Pinot Gris. and As a former student at the King Edward VII Preparatory School, when Ed King III contacted us about an adventure, who was I to resist a real King Edward? Lesley is a pilot, and that Ed King Jr, basically invented the modern aircraft radio was starting to illustrate serendipity ever more forcefully. This was a transmission, a message, from The King? And we’re not going to ignore a message from Elvis.
We selected Muscat distillate, double-distilled in our beautiful Vendome copper pot-stills in Butchertown, our baby and it rode with the King in King Estate Grenache Syrah Mourvèdre French Oak barrels.
This muscat distillate flies First Class, it flies on angel wings. No UFO’s though. It’s a beautiful bespoke suit, and the heart is golden. We wish you well, the thrill is all ours, and never goes away. But, a little less conversation. Drink it.
Natural color and natural flavor. Some natural sediment or suspension may be apparent, particularly at colder temperatures.
Succulent, very confidently fruit forward and bright, with hints of savory spice. Quite crisp and dry. Cherries, red berries, red wine. Very clean lines with a tint of dark red color.
Enjoy on the rocks or in the composition of imaginative cocktails. Preferably with friends and family.
