*5 Stars from Paul Pacult - Highest Recommendation!* Gran Classico Bitter is based on the original Bitter of Turin recipe dating from the 1860s.

Gran Classico Bitter’s color is a natural result of the herbs and plants infused into pure grain spirit produced to the highest Swiss standards and is not artificially colored in any way.

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "The bouquet smells enticingly of fresh cherries, cherry pit, limestone and cooking spice. Entry is ripe and seductively sweet, with touches of spice; the midpalate explodes with juicy cherry and cherry compote tastes, supported and balanced by mineral. Concludes with a lovely rush of ripe cherry flavor." (12/2008) K&L Notes: Produced from the small black cherries of the mountainous region around Lake Zug in Switzerland, Etter packs the essense of 10 pounds of this unique fruit into one 375ml bottle of kirsch.

Funky, farmy, citrusy, sweaty, weird and wonderful.
For fans of saisons and sours, this limited Swiss brew was aged in Bon-Chien barrels, imparting a distinct flavor combination of the tart apple and citrus of we love in a sour with the funky, bretty, barnyardy character we love in a good farmhouse ale. Outstanding.
From the brewery: "L’Abbaye de Saint Bon-Chien is an antique beer, a strong sour ale with 11% abv aged in old wine oak barrels during one year. After the aging period, the different casks are blended together in order to obtain complexity and lots of flavors. St Bon-Chien is one of the world's flagship's sour beers coming from a mixed fermentation. It first ferments with wine yeast, then during the cask's maturation, lots of microorganisms coming from the casks change the beer's flavors' profile. The best way to enjoy a good Bon-Chien is to serve it in ... Read More »
