FRANCOIS PEYROT PINEAU DES CHARENTES
Peyot is one of the premier family owned distilleries in the Cognac region of France, and this is their Pineau des Charentes.
Pineau des Charentes is a regional French aperitif, made in the départements of Charente, Charente-Maritime and, to a much lesser extent, Dordogne in western France. While popular within the region of production, it is less well known in other regions of France and somewhat uncommon abroad.
It is a fortified wine (mistelle or vin de liqueur), made from either fresh, unfermented grape juice or a blend of lightly fermented grape must, to which a Cognac eau-de-vie is added and then matured.
