Château Monluc (Liquors & creams)
The Château de Monluc can be found in the centre of Gascony, in the south of France. This winery has had a long and exciting history and now is the headquarters of an extensive winery. It is also known as the only producer of the famous Pousse Rapière. As the Gascony region of France is famous for its Armagnac, why would their signature aperitif not contain this regional spirit?
Chateau Monluc Pousse Rapière takes its name from the rapier, the long, lightweight sword that was the weapon of choice of the Three Musketeers, among others. This delightful beverage was invented by René Lassus in the 1960s, based on a family recipe which remains a closely guarded secret. What is known is that Pousse Rapière is a liqueur based on Armagnac which is distilled with herbs and botanicals to make a new and exciting spirit, with a notable orange flavour.
For the classic Pousse Rapière cocktail, one part Pousse Rapière liqueur is mixed with six parts Vin Sauvage, a sparkling dry white wine that is distilled from the same exact grapes. It is then finished off with ice and a slice of orange. The common ancestor makes these two spirits soulmates. You can mix Pousse Rapière with other sparkling wines, use it for cooking, and even pour it over your ice cream.
