The wild sloe (prunelle) is a small violet-colored sloe that only grows in the wild. The sloe turns black and shiny when fully mature, and is harvested after the first frosts in the West European countryside. Only the stones are used to make Joseph Cartron's Prunelle Liqueur, and the elegant flavour of their almonds is the hallmark of its distinctive personality. Slow maceration, combined with the consistency of Joseph Cartron's recipe, captures all of the sloe's distinct flavours. The softness of the stones gives this typical Burgundian liqueur all of its authenticity and finesse.
Tasting Note: A liqueur with a wild sloe flavour from Joseph Cartron's excellent line. Serve over ice or as part of a fruity drink with plenty of ice.
