When two legendary products meet, they sometimes lead to wonderful things together.
That is the case with the Mojito and Pineau des Charentes. Both dating back to the 16th century, one was the favorite drink of an English privateer and explorer, the other the result of a Cellar Master who accidentally mixed grape must with eau-de-vie.
Ultimately, this cocktail recipe was customized, highlighting the Charentais terroir and creating the Pineaujito.
