Twice a month, Jean-Marc Daucourt's grandfather would organize Sunday lunches for about twenty people at their home in France. "We would sit for five hours eating, talking and enjoying Champagne, spirits and wine," Daucourt recalls. "This was my first and most important education. I learned the pleasure of entertaining." When Daucourt was old enough, he left his native France to study the art of distillation in Scotland and Germany. After apprenticing at a number of distilleries, Daucourt returned to France, and together with his brother Edward, purchased a distillery just outside the Cognac region in southwest France. After seven years of perfecting his recipe, which marries cutting-edge French wine-making techniques with age-old craftmanship, Daucourt released Jean Marc XO Vodka to the world in 2004. Jean-Marc XO Vodka is made from four exotic types of French wheat, each hand-selected for its unique character. Prior to distillation, each grain is removed from its chaff to remove bitterness and reveal the subtlety of flavors contained therein. While most vodka is produced in mass using column stills, Jean-Marc XO Vodka is distilled nine times in the Cognac region of France using Alembic pot stills — a much more difficult process which results in a rare and spectacularly flavored vodka. After distillation, Jean-Marc XO Vodka is micro-oxygenated — a process typically reserved for Bordeaux wine — before being charcoal-filtered through Limousin oak. Jean-Marc XO Vodka has a plush, floral nose layered with bouquet spices, powdered sugar and coconut. The exceptional wheat flavors shine on the palate, resulting in a warm, elegant mouthfeel with further touches of sweetness. The finish is long and complex, displaying notes of almond, peppercorn and pastry dough.
