Two types of peach - vine peach and white peach - are used to make Mathilde Peche.
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.
|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.
