Clear color. Aromas and flavors of iceberg lettuce and jicama with a round, crisp, fruity medium body and a polished, fast finish with nuances of melon rind, aloe, celery, and green cardamom finish. A subtlety herbaceous liqueur to pair with light and airy vodka cocktails; unique and playful.

Herb/spice liqueurs are alcoholic beverages that contain added flavor from the addition of spices, herbs, barks or roots. There are many famous herbal liqueurs in Europe, some of them produced by monks or other religious orders; some of these contain more than 100 herbs as part of the recipes!

These liqueurs are most often served neat, although some are mixed with water and/or ice. Most have an alcoholic range between 35%-55%.
