Distiller: Bitter Truth
Right after the Boutique Bar Show in 2006, an exhibit in London presenting all the new products for the Back Bar, Bitter Truth Company was founded. Because of their passion for old style cocktails and because of the difficulty of finding good bitters in their original country, German barmen Stephan Berg and Alexander Hauck created their own line of bitters and spirits.
Falernum Liqueur is gold in color, taste and texture, but never one note, it is a calypso of flavor. On the nose are clean wet flip flop, seashell and ginger with just a hint of christmas. The taste carnivals from fresh ginger to vanilla and almond, surfing towards an atomic fireball. All spice giving into a splash of lime and a delicate hint of Bajan sweet pepper sauce-like heat.
An aftertaste's length that feels like a two week holiday into Carribean islands.
