Is CBD the new hotness in cocktails? For Daddy Burt Hemp Co., oil extracts aren’t just for dropping under the tongue. They can be used as cocktail ingredients too.
But first, who’s Daddy Burt? Per the company:
Daddy Burt Hemp Co. is the rekindling of a family hemp farming legacy, dating back to the early 1800s. The interesting company name comes from our founder’s great-grandfather, Joe “Daddy Burt” Burton, a leading hemp farmer in Kentucky during the 1930s and 1940s. Today, we continue the Daddy Burt legacy by producing the world’s best CBD products, made with our industry-leading Plant-To-Product Quality System. We’ve got high-quality, 3rd party tested, and good tasting products.
The company sent us two of its hemp extract oils, both 30ml vials with 750mg of CBD oil included. (That’s 30 servings at 25mg of CBD each.)
We tried them both solo and in cocktails. (Both seem to offer the standard anti-anxiety and pain relief benefits of CBD no matter how they are consumed.) Thoughts follow.
Daddy Burt Hemp Co. CBD Natural Flavor – This oil has an extremely mild flavor, with just a hint of mint on a very neutral base. No terpene notes at all. As expected, it is quite oily in texture, with the silkiness of vegetable oil. In cocktails, the impact is minimal, aside from the introduction of quite a bit of oiliness to the experience, with globs of oil lingering in the glass. Shake hard, you guys. A-
Daddy Burt Hemp Co. CBD Peppermint Flavor – This one’s quite easygoing in mintiness, just a lightly cooling sensation that washes over the mouth with a gentle peppermint flavor. On its own, the addition of mint makes the experience a bit more pleasant, leaving the mouth refreshed and ready to go. The flavor is light, but the finish is persistent. In cocktails, naturally you’ll need to account for the mint element — which can be substantial — alongside the oil slick effect. With whiskey, I really liked how this brought out a mint chocolate note in the glass. Big fan. A
