Pineau des Charentes is a lovely concoction from Charente-Maritime in Western France. First produced as a result of a mistake made in the cellars when a barrel of grape must was put into a empty barrel which in fact contained some eaux de vie, it was then sent back to the seller to age until it was discovered some years later, hey presto! Pineau des Charentes was born. Delicious served chilled as an aperitif or can be used with desserts.
