Lime can be very temperamental and difficult to distill, and after all that hard work you can still end up with a spirit that smells and tastes like artificially flavored candy. Enter the makrut lime – the Thais use this citrus because of its high aromatic oil content and bold flavor. The resulting spirit is nothing like we have ever tasted – unmistakably lime and endlessly complex.
Tart and bright, with lemongrass, ginger and a strong lime character.
Slightly dry and very fresh, with immediate bold lime notes followed by hints of wood, white pepper and cucumber, and lingering dry finish.
