About Mathilde Liqueur

KNOW-HOW

KNOW HOW

Made in France from family recipes dating back over a century, Mathilde liqueurs are all handcrafted. The fruit used to make Mathilde comes from orchards that are treated and maintained in the most natural of fashion, according to strict rules, in order to guarantee the highest quality. Only the best and most intensely flavored fruit is selected and used immediately to express all its freshness.

The techniques for making Mathilde liqueurs differ for each fruit. Mathilde Pear, Peach, Raspberry and Black Currant are made from infusions of fruit in order to extract all their aromas and flavors.

The fruit is steeped in alcohol for several weeks and the infusion is stirred several times each day to obtain a harmonious mix of fruit and alcohol. The alcoholic strength is gradually reduced by adding pure water. The fruit is removed when the process is complete and premium cane syrup is added to balance the flavors and natural acidity of the fruit.

Mathilde liqueurs are entirely natural – no stabilizers or preservatives are ever added.

OUR RANGE

Mathilde Peach

Two types of peach – vine peach and white peach – are used to make Mathilde Pêche.

Vine peaches are small, with richly flavored bright red flesh. A variety highly sensitive to diseases of the vine, winegrowers around Lyon and in Charente would plant this peach in their vineyards to warn them of the appearance of mold. Vine peaches are very juicy despite their small size, with an intense and seductive flavor. White peaches are fleshy and juicy, with a pleasant scent and a lovely soft mouthfeel.

Mathilde Blackcurrant

Known since the 18th century as the “Elixir of Life,” black currant liqueur is made in several regions of France, though some of the best black currants are to be found in Burgundy.

The two varieties used to make Mathilde Cassis are the Noir de Bourgogne and the Blackdown. Noir de Bourgogne has excellent taste qualities and the reputation of being the best black currant to eat. Blackdown is a soft, sweet variety.
A long steeping period ensures a perfect balance between alcohol and fruit.

Mathilde Pear

We have chosen the Bon-Chrétien Williams pear to make Mathilde Poire. When fully ripe, it has a golden yellow skin and very tasty and juicy, smooth white flesh.

In order to extract as much flavor as possible from the fruit, Mathilde Poire is made from a distillate (a distillation of pear cider) which is then enriched with an infusion of pear. The technique produces a liqueur that is true to the aromatic properties of the fruit.

Mathilde Raspberry

Several varieties of raspberry are used to make Mathilde Framboise. Some are from Scotland, well-known for its berry fruit like Glen Prosen, Glen Moy and Glen Clova which illustrate the country’s wealth of fruit.

Rose de Plombières, grown in the Hautes Côtes de Bourgogne, gives the liqueur delicacy, while Violette de Bouze completes the rich and complex bouquet.

Mathilde Orange XO

Made according to a family tradition that dates back 200 years, Mathilde Orange XO is a combination of two natural alcohols — a fine brandy made by Cognac Ferrand that is aged in oak casks and a distillate of orange peel.

Mathilde Orange XO has a refined and delicate nose with subtle aromas of vine blossom, orange peel and vanilla and a voluptuous, round taste. It has a powerful and richly flavored body, while the spirit gives remarkable length on the finish.
