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!
