Destillaré – Orange Curaçao
90 PROOF | 45% Alc. By Vol. | 750ml
HANDCRAFTED SMALL BATCH DISTILLATION & HONEY INFUSION
Orange peels and spices are macerated for 12 hours in apple brandy low wine.
Macerated peels with addition of honey is then double distilled.
Additional peels & lavender petals are also vapor distilled at the same time.
Vapor Basket botanicals (in a bag) are then macerated in the double-distilled apple brandy for 30 minutes for additional citrus extraction, and some color.
Distillate is then aged in a Copper & Kings American Brandy Barrel for an additional 3-6months to add color and polish and soften the spirit. This process harks back to more original, traditional antique curaçaos.
Orange Blossom Honey is infused in to the distillate pre-bottling as a back-sweetener as opposed to typical sugar.
Destillaré artisanal potations add balance, flavor intensity and natural complexity to inventive cocktails.
Nose: Sustained, intense bright orange aroma, with subtle orchard blossoms. Bouquet of ripe tropical orange. Hints of exotic spices and a lavender spike.
Palate: Rich, warm, soft and approachable. Integrated pure citrus and honey. Spreads on tongue with velvety mouthfeel.
