G. Miclo Quetsch Eau de Vie (Plum) Tradition is a traditional French eau de vie from Alsace.

Gilbert Miclo founded Distillerie Miclo in 1965 in Alsace. He had succeeded his father as head of the family company in 1962, but in those days they were only traders of wine, eaux de vie and beers. The decision was taken to produce their own fruit brandies, and to concentrate on only products of the very finest quality. The company immediately became well-known and by 1972 Miclo had 50 agents selling its products throughout France. Miclo also caught the attention of master patissiers – who wanted the purest fruit brandy for flavouring their fine pastries and desserts. In 1977, a new distillery was built housing four stills and 36 new Inox stainless-steel tanks for macerating the fruit and ageing the brandies. In 1982 Gilbert Miclo opened a distillery in Moorea (French Polynesia) to produce exotic fruit brandies and liqueurs. In 1985 Miclo purchased an additional distillery in Alsace, and expanded its product offering even further. Today the distillery uses more than 2,000 tonnes of fresh fruit each year, and is still a frequent prize winner.

G. Miclo Quetsch Eau de Vie (Plum) Tradition is made from a small purple plum, also known as the mussel plum, I assume because it looks a bit like a mussel. It has yellow flesh that ripens in late summer and is is typical of Alsatian orchards.

All of the G. Miclo “Tradition” range of eaux de vie is aged for at least 2 years in vats at Distillerie Miclo prior to release.
