It is not uncommon for our Framboise to throw a little sediment after bottling. Usually it is a fine red colored dust at the bottom of the bottle. The sediment is totally harmless and does not affect the sensory properties of our Framboise. The deposit is made of ellagitannins (a type of tannins found in many berries including raspberries) that precipitate in the presence of alcohol, not unsimilar to the tannin-anthocyanin deposit found in some red wines. The ellagitannin deposit is actually very rich in antioxidant molecules which have been linked to a reduced risk of heart disease (so scoop it all up).
