K&L Notes

The legendary aged liqueur of the Carthusian Monks is becoming more limited every year. Demand is through the roof on their highest end liqueur, the VEP or vieillissement exceptionnellement prolongé. That means that the secret recipe is aged for an extended period of time (much speculation as to exactly how long) in oak casks in the traditional cellars at their facility in Voiron. It is truly one of the world's great delicacies. Because of the unusually difficult method of production, supply will not be increased, so expect shortages in the future.

The most extraordinary digestif ever made. The most extraordinary anything ever made. My desert island one-and-only (provided the desert island has one or two ice cubes).

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
