Made with Copper Pot-Distilled American Brandy, Caribbean Cacao Nibs & Honey.
We use real chocolate cacao nibs. During extended maceration in the barrel the natural cocoa butter is released within the spirit. This can cause a natural sheen or even a slight “truffle” in the bottle.
SHAKE WELL BEFORE SERVING.
Destillaré artisanal potations add balance, flavor intensity and natural complexity to inventive cocktails.
Nose: Intense dark chocolate. Luscious, toffee, very light coffee and vanilla aromas, hints of tropical florals.
Palate: Not sweet and syrupy, or thick and sticky – lightly viscous and earthy. Very nicely balanced with sweetness from the honey with a faint natural dark chocolate bitterness on the back-end. Deliciously complex with barrel aged brandy smoothness.
Finish: Dark chocolate all day long – tip of the tongue through the mid-palate and down the back of the throat. Luscious and rich, velvety and silky. High proof bracing – clean & fresh – not sticky and cloying. Lovely lingering rounded mouthfeel. Chocolate flavors last forever.
