Introducing Batch 028: Cacao Infused!
Inspired by the wintertime flavors of Mexican hot chocolate, this high malt bourbon liqueur was built from an experimental mash containing a unique blend of roasted malts. The whiskey was then infused with a variety of ingredients, including two types of cacao nibs – each roasted to highlight characteristics from their respective terroirs. The result celebrates the chocolatey flavors from both whiskey and cacao. Enjoy chilled, on ice, at dessert, on dessert… or as dessert! Dessert!
