- Distilled from 100% molasses, primarily on DDL’s heritage, French Savalle Still (metal, 4-column still)
- Botanicals include clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, and orange peel. The spices are macerated post distillation and then strained.
- Lightly aged before bottling (a portion of the blend is aged up to three years)
- Enticing aromas of vanilla pudding, toasted cinnamon, and nutmeg lead to a surprisingly sprightly palate of light baking spice with a hint of green peppercorn and star anise. A final push of cinnamon closes out the balanced finish.
- 35% ABV
