Our new life in 'Les Vosges'

With Mirabelles you can also…

…make “La Goutte” which is 55 degree alcohol.
Let’s try it: Thanks Eric 😉


Matches for Rhys and a bouteille de Goutte for us…

With “La Goutte” you can also make a ‘Bruleau’. A selection of fresh red fruits or others that you cook ‘flambé’ with La Goutte and a sugar cube. Serve hot. Nice night cap.


La Goutte is a lovely digestif. Nice also as a drop in a hot drink as it’s full of flavour. It’s also useful to make other alcohol. I added it to make my ‘Ratafia’.

If we’re going to try and make some Goutte. We need a tub. Great I know where we have some but we need to empty them first.

That was properly disgusting. Those fermented mirabelles must have been in there for 10 years. It stank so much. But we did it. Emptied and cleaned the tubs, ready to be filled with fresh ones.

Let’s go and pick some.


So we did and filled up one tub. We had to keep stirring it for weeks until there was no more gas.
