The recipe for Mathilde Orange XO dates back 200 years. Sweet orange peels are first macerated in a grape spirit and then distilled. A refined and aged brandy is added to the orange peel distillate and the spirit is then aged before bottling.
The result is a liqueur with a refined nose, with an intense orange aroma and a hint of vanilla. The flavor is powerful, the aromatics are potent and the body is rich. The spirit gives remarkable length on the finish and an overall voluptuous, round taste.
Burnished gold in the glass, this liqueur has a bright lemon and orange peel fragrance. The first honeyed sips warm all the way down, showing rich, rounded nuttiness melded with vanilla, baking spice and just a subtle hint of lemon peel on the exit. Nice sweetener for any drink made with brown spirits. Made from a brandy base and sweet orange peels.
