brandy and Armagnac are well-known digestifs
and Calvados, the famous apple brandy, is generally considered to be the ultimate palate cleanser, according to drinks entertainment website thatsthespirit.com.
Eaux-de-vie - dry brandies made of fruits
such as pear, cherry and raspberry - have traditionally fallen into the digestif category, along with malt whisky and fortified wines like vintage
port and barrel-aged
tawny. Some liqueurs, like the herbal Benedictine or the Scotch-based Glayva, are classic digestifs, along with
Italian digestif made of grape skins and seeds.
