Letherbee Distillers Besk Liqueuer
Proof: 50% Alc/Vol
Description: Experience the bold and distinctive flavors of our Letherbee Distillers Liqueur, lovingly crafted in the heart of Chicago, Illinois. Inspired by the traditional Swedish herbal spirit bësk, meaning 'bitter' in Swedish, our exceptional creation pays homage to the city's iconic bësk brand, Jeppson's Malört, while introducing a new and exciting interpretation.
Formerly known as Letherbee Malört, our liqueur captures the essence of the revered Swedish style, renowned for its pronounced bitterness and unique botanical blend. In collaboration with Robert Haynes of Apologue Liqueurs, another esteemed Chicago-based brand, we have meticulously curated a selection of six botanicals that harmoniously dance on the palate.
At the core of our Letherbee Liqueur lies a base of neutral grain distillate, carefully crafted from the finest corn. This foundation sets the stage for an exquisite infusion of wormwood, gentian root, grapefruit, juniper, star anise, and elderflower. Each botanical plays a crucial role, contributing to the layers of complexity and depth that define our exceptional spirit.
Allow the flavors to unfold as wormwood takes center stage, commanding your attention with its captivating bitterness. Supporting notes of grapefruit hard candy, anise, citrus peel, and baking spice further enhance the experience, adding a delightful interplay of flavors. The result is a truly distinctive liqueur that embodies the spirit of adventure.
