La Vieille Prune

plum brandy from the Lot

vieille prune

It sounds like a wrinkly old granny, but La Vieille Prune is really ‘The Old Plum’. Since 1905, the Distillerie Louis Roque in Souillac has been turning those plums into one of France’s finest and smoothest eau-de-vie. It also comes in pretty carafes.
