Review: J. Witty Chamomile Liqueur

j. witty chamomile liqueur

Proof positive that there’s a liqueur for everything — and I don’t mean that in a bad way — I present to you J. Witty Spirits, which to date makes just one product, an organic, artisanal Chamomile tea liqueur.

Chamomile tea hardly has a brutish reputation, but one sip and you’ll find its namesake liqueur to be a shockingly powerful spirit, literally doused with flavor and nuance. Up front you’ll find spices — cinnamon and allspice, and a honey sweetness.  Very Christmasy, like a pumpkin pie and fruitcake rolled into one. It isn’t until the finish when the chamomile flower comes on, giving the liqueur a long and mildly sweet denouement.

Very beautiful, versatile, and worth your attention. I look forward to experimenting with it in cocktails!

40 proof.

    Surprised at your high rating. I guess, though, “what it says on the tin” (i.e. accuracy of representation) may not be high on your list of criteria. Arguably “is it good” matters quite a bit for a rating. Still, I’d like it if my “chamomile liqueur” would be more “chamomile” than “baking spice”, and this, as you note, is not the case here. I found it a bit disappointing.

      This was also written 12 years ago… so things could conceivably have changed.
