Bigod 1101

Made from blend of grape juices, fortified with Brandy to 16% alcohol, don't be fooled, you hardly taste the brandy. The grapes are grown in Suffolk vineyard and made in a winery in Monk Soham.

Beautiful amber colour with golden tints, with thick legs. The taste of is sweet but also balanced in a way, that acid notes come through, subtle hints of ripe yellow fruits (apricot, honey, quince…). The aromas of candied fruit are well marked with peach, quince, plum and apricot. A harmonious aftertaste leaves a fruity note.

Designed to be served chilled or over ice, to drink before a meal, with a dessert, a platter of cheeses or as a social drink with a difference. Store in the fridge once the bottle has been opened

Named after the Bigod family occupiers of Framlingham Castle in the 11th century. The name Bigod was recognized as a name for a Norman or an excessively religious person. A name given by the French to the Normans, because, at every other word they would swear 'By God’, from which they were termed Bigodi.
