Sessile Oak

(Quercus Petraea)

The best quality Sessile Oak in Hungary grows in Zemplén mountains.
Our Oak is similar to a type of oak growing in France in Nevers and Allier regions.
In Hungarian mountains a tree is growing slower, has narrow, thick rings.
It has lower level of tannin than Pedunculate Oak.
Because of that, it gives well balanced complexity of wines and liquors’ taste.
Sessile Oak gives traditional oak taste with herbs and spices flavor, and aroma of cloves and cinnamon.
