Demandez un Pineau

A clever and rare find from the markets of France, this Vintage Match Strike once served as a promotional piece provided to bistros and cafés to advertise Quina Le Pineau French aperitif.

Considered the little brother to Cognac and coming from western France, you will hear locals mention ‘PEE-no.’ No relation to 'Pinot,' ‘Pineau,’ is a regionally favored blend of Cognac eau-de-vie with fresh grape juice.

As legend has it, Pineau was discovered by accident! During the harvest of 1589, a farmer put grape must into a barrel he believed was empty. He forgot to empty the barrel (which wasn't empty, after all!), and when cellar masters discovered the barrel years later, they came to find the highly enjoyable blend of juice and Cognac, known today as Pineau

With its wondrous shape and handsome age, light a match with ease and in true vintage French fashion with this storied match strike. Simply strike a strike-anywhere match along the unglazed ridged center, et voilà! A perfectly and convenitenly lit match.

This practical and clever find will serve you well and store your every match in elegant vintage style.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. 3 3/4" x 3 7/8". Strike anywhere matches not included.
